Courses and Seminars

The Surface Engineering Institute offers classes for bachelor and master students, teaching the fundamentals of surface technology as well as the related coating processes. Apart from the processes involved, high performance alloys used in technical applications as well as material composites of ceramics and metals are of high relevance. These materials are often exposed to corrosive environments and therefore require customized corrosion protection. Furthermore, the IOT offers additional specializations on the main research topics of the institute: physical vapor deposition,thermal spraying and brazing technology. The acquired knowledge allows the development of coatings tailored for industrial use in mobility applications as well as in aircraft engines and machining. To conclude the lectures, we offer a guided tour as well as student theses for a practical implementation of the learned contents. Current research results of the IOT are presented and discussed biweekly in a PhD student seminar.
