Lecture and Exam information


The lecture “Coating Technology for Mobility Applications” focuses on the requirement profiles of mobility applications for coating solutions and the application-related use of coatings for mobility applications. The aim is to provide students with a practical and industry-relevant insight into typical coating technologies for mobility applications. For this purpose, the lecture will present the most common industrial coating processes using practical examples e.g., physical vapor deposition (PVD), plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) and thermal spraying, as well as coating materials. The lecture will teach common competences concerning the application of different manufacturing processes and materials of surface technology in the particular field of mobility, e.g. automotive, aviation or railway engineering. Hereby, several topics such as corrosion protection, tribology and electromobility are addressed. In the end, students should be able to classify typical mobility applications in which surface technology is of significant importance according to the requirements.
