Faculty V – Mechanical Engineering and Transport Systems

Humans and machines

Autonomous driving, Industrialization 4.0, innovative human-machine systems – the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Transport Systems is dedicated to the development and optimization of technical systems for the current and future needs of society. It offers students four bachelor’s and 13 master’s programs and conducts basic and applied research in more than 500 projects. The spectrum of topics ranges from machine-technical systems and objects; to planning, developmental, and production processes; and the human sciences.

The combination of mechanical engineering, transport systems, and psychology affords the Faculty an interdisciplinary knowledge and research platform in engineering unique to German universities. Its researchers collaborate closely with business and industry in Berlin-Brandenburg and are active in national and international networks. The Faculty is laid out over more than 16,000 square meters hosting modern laboratories, workshops, and test halls for researchers and students: diverse flight simulators, a satellite mission control center, a test center for automotive research, the Produktionstechnisches Zentrum, and Energy Lab are just a few examples of the facilities available.
