Start: 20.10.2017
Lecturer:

Prof. Dr. Manfred Kohl
Dr. Martin Sommer

SWS: 2
Lv-No.: 2141865
Exam: written exam, except for „Kernmodulfach“
Information:

As „Kernmodulfach“ in the SP „Mikroaktoren und Mikrosensoren“ in combination with the „Kernmodulfach“ „Mikroaktorik“ the exam will be oral (60 minutes) by appointment.

Basic principles and applications of so-called “new” actuators and sensors in the field of mechatronics

Goals and Outline

The lecture is compulsory elective subject in the Master Course of Mechanical Engineering. In addition, it is elective subject in different major fields of the Master Courses of "Mechanical Engineering", " Materials Science and Engineering ", "Electrical Engineering", "Industrial Engineering" and of the planned Master Course of "Mechatronics and Information Technology".

The lecture addresses students in the fields of mechanical engineering, mechatronics and information technology, materials science and engineering, electrical engineering and economic sciences. A comprehensive introduction is given in the basics and current developments on the macroscopic length scale.

The lecture is in German, but can be given in English, depending on the listeners.
