The Chair of Industrial Information Technology, part of the Institute of Machine Tools and Factory Management, focuses on further developing digital solutions to improve and enhance the work of engineers throughout the entire process of virtual product creation, from the project idea to product development, through to production planning and ramp-up management. We also have a long-standing close cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology.
Our areas of focus include intuitive and context-based information modeling, intuitively operable and functionally experienceable virtual prototypes, function-oriented virtual product creation as well as development processes and methodologies for product design. Engineering and information technology which reflect current needs are at the core of our teaching. We provide our students with the skills, experience, and values they will need throughout their careers as engineers.
