Methods for Product Development and Mechatronics

About us

The research at MPM is both product- and process-oriented.

In doing so, we combine the methods of "classical engineering design" with the integrative approaches of mechatronics. Four key areas are in the forefront:

  • Methods of product development
  • Mechatronic systems
  • System simulation
  • New concepts for sustainable products

New methodological approaches are usually tested and validated in specific research projects. Our current application projects focus on the necessary changes in development processes for the successful adoption of additive technologies, as well as concepts and systems for a climate-friendly transformation of our transport system.

In our courses, we provide students with a comprehensive insight into the product development process of mechatronic products.

We also look at product development from the perspective of holistic sustainability. In particular, we offer the following courses in the Bachelor's programme:

  • Fundamentals of Design
  • Application-oriented Design Methodology
  • CAD in Automotive and Mechanical Engineering
  • Electric Vehicle Technologies

In the Master's programme

  • Integrative product development
  • Simulation of mechatronic systems
  • Development methods for sustainable products
