Engineering Design Group

The research and development activities of the Department of Engineering Design aim at:

  • product development processes (theory, methodology, course of activities, control)
  • related methods and tools (e.g. DfX, CAX)
  • appropriate principles of product modelling

Special attention is paid to:

  • close co-operation with industrial practice
  • creativity in utilising physical, chemical, biological effects to realise technical purposes
  • pictorial documentation of design results in sketches, technical drawings and computer models (including the use of audio-visual VR-technology)
  • percise determination and optimisation of product properties (including acoustical proporties)
  • collaborative work in interdisciplinary teams (maufacturing engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, natural sciences, industrial design, economics, ...)

The Engineering Design Group is Member of the Institute for Design and Precision Engineering
