Our students form a broadly oriented group of employees, making it possible to work on projects from structural mechanics to process technology and software development: there is little that cannot be done with the right team. We therefore combine students with a purely academic background with students who have had practical education or working experience. A few academic specialisations are set out below to show what students encounter on a daily basis and to give an impression of the possibilities of NNTS.
A thermal engineer specialises in energy systems and thermodynamics. From biofuels to distillation columns or heat flow simulations; these students are versatile and work systematically.
- Analysing a heat pump
- Pyrolysis of biomass
- Designing a gas turbine
- Heat transfer phenomena
You want creative new ideas or simply need something to look good? Design, ease of use and social impact are all factors that are taken into account with Industrial Design, for results that really stand out.
- Ergonomic design
- Synthetic materials production
- Lightweight engineering
- Prototype sketching
Without structural mechanics everything falls apart. Strength calculations, wear and tear and production methods form the basis for all mechanical designs. With SolidWorks, design becomes tangible in seconds.
- Stress and strain
- Numerical analysis
- Friction wear and tear
Electric devices have the future, electrical engineers hold the future. From embedded software systems to front-end platforms. Every product is designed to be safe, reliable and effective.
- Model-based programming
- Eagle PCB hardware development
- Process control engineering
- C, C#, C++, Java, Python, etc.
