Lecture and Exam information


Surface Engineering Part 2 is an extension to the contents of the lecture Surface Engineering Part 1. The lecture includes further coating technologies, e.g. hot dipping, sol-gel process, enameling and plating, as well as the most important methods of surface modification processes. Subsequently, a systematic approach to coating development will be explained using application examples.

The second part of the lecture deals with applications of surface technology in the field of tools, aircraft engines and the powertrain. This includes an introduction of chances and potentials for the application of surface technologies in these fields. Moreover, frequently used coating materials will be presented with the corresponding state-of-the-art surface technologies.

Following the lecture and exercises, a guided tour of the institute will take place, during which the gained knowledge can be expanded through vivid demonstrations of specific coating processes.
