Course description

The demand for lightweight constructions and fibre-reinforced composite materials is on the rise. Lightweight engineering focuses on reducing the weight of materials, components, and structures without sacrificing safety, durability, or other key attributes. This field is crucial in industries like automotive, marine, e-mobility, wind energy, and machine construction. Benefits include better fuel efficiency, increased payload capacity, improved performance, and reduced environmental impact. Our study programme, Lightweight Engineering & Composites, emphasizes carbon fibre-reinforced plastics (CFRP) and glass fibre-reinforced plastics (GFRP). These materials are used in consumer electronics, satellite components, semiconductor manufacturing, and sporting goods. Notably, the CFRP sector is expected to grow by 10% annually. This programme is designed for engineers eager to advance in a high-demand field. It prepares you for careers in both the German and international lightweight engineering industries. Located at the Stade Technology Centre, our campus offers unique networking opportunities with companies like Airbus, EADS, and the Fraunhofer Institute. For those already employed, part-time study options are available. Further details can be found below.
