Course content

The significance of composite technologies will strongly increase over the next few years. The availability of study programmes for this subject is based on the demand from companies and research institutions for education and training, in order for Germany to remain competitive in these key technologies in the future.

Carbon Fibre-Reinforcing Polymers (CFRP) and other composite materials are considered to be the material family of the future. These materials are particularly robust, non-corrosive and at the same time lighter than steel or aluminium. The CFRP industrial sector is predicted to grow by around 10% per year. Lightweight structures made of composite materials are increasing in importance across all industrial branches; such as automobile, mechanical engineering and plat construction, railway and shipbuilding industries.

The demand of business enterprises and research institutions for engineers specialized in the field of composite structures who can work in positions at the interface between research, production and technology management will strongly increase.
