Vehicle Construction, Polymers and Materials Science

The research area is dedicated to future automotive engineering. Key aspects include sustainability and reduction of CO₂ emissions. Equally important topics are weight-reducing structures, the increased use of natural fibre-reinforced composites (biopolymers), composite and conceptual lightweight construction, recycling as well as simulations based on the finite element method (FEM).


The following are actively engaged in the research area:

  • Faculty of Automotive Engineering
  • Faculty of Computer Science/IT
  • Faculty of Mechanical Engineering
