The research focus Advanced Materials Engineering (AME) currently consist of 11 members of the engineering, process engineering and computer science departments as well as the Institute für Verbundwerkstoffe GmbH (IVW) and the Institute für Oberflächen- und Schichtanalytik GmbH (IFOS). AME consists of an object division and a methods division. The object division is represented by trendsetting materials classes and technologies, in which highly dynamical scientific and technical developments take currently place. The methods division is indicated by the application of an intensive crosslinking between experiment, modelling and simulation. Within the framework of AME a wide range of interesting study, diploma and doctor thesis topics are offered. Furthermore there is the chance to participate in the AME competences in terms of common scientific and industrial projects.
