Study concept

Approx. 750 foundries in Germany supply the automotive industry, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering with high-quality casting components. No wind turbine or motor vehicle would move without castings. Even many small parts, such as those required for precision mechanics or medical technology, are casted. Casting is usually the fastest way from the material to the component. The foundry engineers have to provide engineering support throughout the entire process - from the melting of the metal, through casting, to solidification of the melt and subsequent further processing of the casting. They are responsible for production as well as for materials selection and product development.

The Master's programme in „Foundry Technology“ is primarily aimed at graduates with a Bachelor's degree with a focus on foundry technology. The Master's programme is oriented towards the modern development of foundry technology and highlights, for example, in-depth aspects of process engineering and quality assurance. In addition, students have the opportunity to choose from a range of subjects from the fields of mechanical engineering, materials science or economics, depending on their interests.
