December 2012: ERMA InnoStud in Unispectrum

Innovative, Interdisciplinary and Practical: TU Students get involved in ERMA! Within the joint project ERMA – Energy and Recourse Efficient Mobile Working Machines funded by the “Stiftung Rheinland-Pfalz für Innovation“ the involved institutes strike out in a new direction and promote a close coupling between research and teaching. Objective of the project is the research and development of energy efficient concepts and technologies for mobile working machines. Major focus will be put on the powertrain, energy management, friction management and life cycle management. Students work actively as well! They become in their individually chosen specialization work and final projects an intensive access to research thematic and preform a valuable contribution to the project. Get involved with ERMA! [more]


November 2012: ERMA at PTC|Live

PTC|Live is one of a kind international series of events organized by PTC and its technology and distribution partners. The German event takes place this year in November again in Stuttgart. On two days you can experience trainings and networking opportunities within the framework of which one can exchange ideas with product and PLM experts and learn about the newest best practices in industry and science. With its multilayered and diverse program of client and expert presentations as well as user trainings PTC|Live has established itself as a must for PTC clients and PLM experts. The project ERMA is presented within a technical talk addressing proven approaches and experience. [more]
