A.      General Information



1.      The Universität Stuttgart


Description of the Universität Stuttgart

The Universität Stuttgart, which was founded in 1829, has integrated the social sciences
and the humanities with engineering and the natural sciences to become an internationally
renown future-oriented place of teaching and research. Today nearly 17,000 students are
studying to complete their degrees in one of the 44 degree courses offered by the 14 fac-
ulties. More than 2,900 of these young men and women are international students.

The Universität Stuttgart holds a leading position in both basic and applied research and is
proud of its tradition of close cooperation with industry as well as with other research insti-
tutions such as the Fraunhofer-Society for Production Engineering, the Baden-
Württemberg Materials Testing Centre and the German Aerospace Research Institute.
These close relationships also stimulate important impulses for teaching at the university.

2.      The Office of International Affairs


The Office of International Affairs is responsible for international relations and coordinates
the programmes that the Universität Stuttgart has with partner institutions throughout the
world. In addition, it serves as a centre for advising international students on general ques-
tions and problems affecting study and life in Stuttgart as well as being the first place for
students to go who wish to study abroad.

Should you have any questions related to your specific study programme and require aca-
demic counselling, please consult your academic advisor. His or her address is available
at the Office of International Affairs.

The Office of International Affairs also organises an Orientation Seminar (see page 9) as
well as short excursions to places of interest in the area around Stuttgart. Once a month,
the Office of International Affairs organises an International „Stammtisch“ where visiting
students and any German students who may be interested can meet.

The Academic Calendar

The academic year is divided into two semesters: the Winter Semester (WS) from Octo-
ber to March and the Summer Semester (SS) from April to September. Each semester
covers a period of approximately 15 weeks during which classes take place called the
Vorlesungszeit and a period when there are usually no classes called the vorlesungs-
freie Zeit.

In the WS, the Vorlesungszeit is from the of middle of October to the middle of February
and in the SS from the middle of April to the middle of July.

Please note that examinations and block courses very often take place during the vorle-
sungsfreie Zeit. During the month of August no exams are taken at all.

to be paid by all students and is charged each semester. It is a general fee towards the
cost of running the cafeterias and dormitories and offers a number of other consulting ser-
vices for students free of charge. Do not pay the 'Studentenwerksbeitrag' until you have
arrived in Stuttgart.

The German Intensive Course

This German intensive course is designed specifically for the needs of visiting students
within partnership programmes and is taught by the staff of the Intercultural Centre of the
Universität Stuttgart. The course starts at the beginning of September (Winter Semester)
or March (Summer Semester) and runs for about five weeks. Participants, however, are
expected to have some proficiency in German corresponding to 200 hours or two semes-
ters of coursework in German at a university.

The course takes place from Monday to Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and twice a week
there are also classes from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The objectives of this intensive course are:

 to achieve proficiency in German at an advanced level corresponding to about 800
  hours of German,
 to improve listening comprehension and active use of German as a scientific lan-
  guage, particularly in respect to the specific subject of the participant,
 to acquire the learning techniques and communicative competence needed to study
  successfully at a German university.

Application deadline:

15 July for the Winter Semester and 15 January for Summer Semester. Application
forms are available from Ms. Gertrud Burger at the Office for International Affairs, e-mail:
incoming.visiting@ia.uni-stuttgart.de.


The Orientation Seminar

The Orientation Seminar immediately follows the German Intensive Course and it takes
place the week previous to the beginning of the lecture period.

The three-day seminar offers intercultural and regional information as well as a general
introduction to studying at the Universität Stuttgart and also includes specialised academic
counselling. The seminar concludes with a one-day excursion. All participants have to
make a contribution towards the cost. At present this is DM 20.

Registration deadline: 15 September for the Winter Semester and 15 March for the
Summer Semester. Registration forms are available from Ms. Gertrud Burger, e-mail: in-
coming.visiting@ia.uni-stuttgart.de.

Office of International Affairs                                            General Information


The Structure of Studies

A degree course is divided into the Stage 1 Studies („Grundstudium“) and the Stage 2
Studies („Hauptstudium“). Visiting students within partnership programs may take
courses in either stage.

The Stage 1 Studies last at least 4 semesters and give a general introduction into the
chosen field of study. The Stage 1 Studies are completed with a pre-diploma examination
(„Vordiplom“) in the engineering sciences or with an intermediate examination („Zwischen-
prüfung“) in the social sciences and humanities respectively before the Stage 2 Studies. In
contrast to the Anglo-American system the successfully completed Stage 1 Studies do not
constitute an academic degree or professional qualification.

During the Stage 2 Studies students continue their studies and extend their knowledge in
a more specialised way. At the end of the Stage 2 Studies students have to write a project
work (Diplomarbeit) in the engineering sciences or a final thesis (Magisterarbeit) in the
humanities. After having successfully passed the final examination students obtain their
degree (a Diplom degree in the engineering sciences, a Magister Artium degree in the
humanities) which enables them to start their professional career.


Which courses must I take?

In comparison to the Anglo-American university system, students at German universities
generally have more freedom in the selection of the courses they choose to take and
when they take them. However, this does vary from subject to subject. Many of the
courses in the natural sciences and engineering are obligatory whereas students studying
in the humanities and social sciences generally choose the courses they want to take on a
more individual basis.
One further difference is the time for selecting courses. This does not normally take place
at the end of the previous semester but during the first two weeks of the semester itself.
This, and the freedom of choice is often confusing for international students. For this rea-
son, the individual faculties offer comprehensive information seminars at the beginning of
each semester to help students in their choice. Additional information is given during the
Orientation Seminar (see page 9) and can be found in the Welcome Guide. Should you
still have difficulties do not hesitate to contact the Office of International Affairs.


What kind of courses are offered?

The Universität Stuttgart distinguishes between the following types of courses:

 Lecture
  held by an instructor in front of a large group of students

 Exercises
  the subject matter is reviewed again and deepened in smaller groups; often exercises
  accompany lectures


Information Package                                                                        10
Office of International Affairs                                               General Information


 Seminars
 student active participation is very important; students present papers on a given topic
 followed by discussion

 Practical courses
  common in the natural sciences and engineering and usually involving experiments in a
  laboratory

As a rule, a class involves two credit hours. One credit hour, Semesterwochenstunde
(SWS), corresponds to 45 minutes in the classroom over the whole semester. Generally
all courses are taught in German.


Transferring Credits

There are two possibilities for visiting students to receive credit for work done in Stuttgart:

 Visiting students can participate in regular courses and take the final written or oral
  exam in each course in order to be awarded a proof of academic achievement or
  Schein. In addition to receiving a Schein for successfully completing a written exam or
  Klausur, it can be awarded for a project paper or Hausarbeit (an essay on a specific
  topic of between 10 and 20 pages in length) or for an assignment and oral presenta-
  tion or Referat (a paper presented on a given topic usually as part of a seminar).
  Grades range from 1 (very good) to 4 (sufficient). If a student receives a grade below
  4, then the course has been failed and needs to be repeated. In some courses grades
  are not given.

 Students under the SOCRATES exchange-scheme will receive their credits according
  to the ECTS-agreement (European Credit Transfer System), which is to be discussed
  between the student and the home and host supervisors.

 Some advanced visiting students may wish to work on an independent project super-
  vised by a professor. Such independent study corresponds closely to a Studienarbeit,
  which is required in engineering and many of the natural sciences. Students wishing to
  do this type of independent study need to find a professor at the Universität Stuttgart
  who is willing to supervise such a project work. The question of credit transfer to the
  home universities should also be clarified in advance. The subject advisors or
  Fachstudienberater/in can assist in finding a supervisor. Their addresses can be
  found in WWW under http://www.uni-stuttgart.de/studium/beratung/fachberatung.
  html or from The Office of International Affairs (address see page 6).

Please clarify the question of credit transfer with your home universities prior to
coming to Stuttgart and make sure that you maintain contact with your home supervisor
during your stay here. This is possible via e-mail.

3.      Other Facilities at the Universität Stuttgart


Libraries

There are two university libraries, one on the City Centre Campus and one on the Vaihin-
gen Campus. Students need a library ticket in order to be able to borrow books from the
library. This can be obtained at one of the university libraries. Please note that many of the
faculties and institutes have their own libraries, too.


Computer Centre and E-mail

The computer centre of the Universität Stuttgart (RUS) provides a number of terminals for
student use. Demand is extremely high so students must be prepared to wait. Should you
wish to open an e-mail account, you can do so at the Computer Advising Centre RUS-
Benutzerberatung on presentation of your registration number (handed to you at registra-
tion).


Sports Activities

The Institute of Sports Science offers a whole range of sporting activities each semester.
They are generally free and are frequently organised by students. These can be such
regular events as volleyball, hockey and climbing or special excursions such as skiing in
winter or sailing in summer. A comprehensive programme is provided at the beginning of
each semester and a copy can be obtained at The Office of International Affairs.


Meals

Students must provide for their own meals. This can be done inexpensively by eating in
the Student Union cafeteria or Mensa. In addition to the Mensa on the City Centre Cam-
pus and in Vaihingen, there are a number of student cafeterias. The Mensa is open for
lunch five days a week. There is always a choice of meal which costs between DM 3 and
DM 5. The cafeterias are normally open weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and offer
drinks and small snacks.

Residence Permits and Visa Regulations

SOCRATES-Students from EU-countries and visiting students who are citizens of
the USA:

Visiting students who are either EU-citizens or citizens of the USA can enter Germany with
their passports and apply for their residence permit Aufenthaltsbewilligung at the foreign
registration office of the City of Stuttgart Ausländerbehörde after arrival. Since Germany
has registration laws, all persons must register at the general registration office Meldebe-
hörde of the city where they are living within seven days of arrival.

The following documents must be presented to the Ausländerbehörde and the Melde-
behörde and should therefore be brought with you from home:
- passport
- proof of sufficient financial resources (at present approx. DM 900 per month). This can
  be a savings book, confirmation from the bank on the credit balance available, a bank
  statement, proof of stipend or scholarship, a statement from parents with either a nota-
  rised signature of the parents or a copy of their passports
- two passport photos


Visiting students who are citizens of Australia, Canada and non EU-countries:

These visiting students must apply for a prospective student visa (Studienbewerbervisum
or Studentenvisum) at the German Embassy or a German Consulate in their home coun-
try prior to departure. This should be done as early as possible because the processing
time for such visas can take very long i.e. up to nine months.

The following documents are required from the foreign registration office Ausländerbe-
hörde and from the general registration office Meldebehörde and should be brought with
you from home:
- prospective student visa (Studienbewerbervisum or Studentenvisum)
-  proof of sufficient financial resources (at present approx. DM 900 per month). This can
  be a savings book, confirmation from the bank on the credit balance available, a bank
  statement, proof of stipend or scholarship, a statement from parents with either a nota-
  rised signature of the parents or a copy of their passports
- two passport photos




Costs of Living Expenses

In general, students will need about DM 1000/ month. This will cover the following:

rent                                approx.           DM 300 to 450 (without meals)
health insurance                    approx.           DM 95

other incidentals                  approx.              DM 100


Dormitory Accommodation

The Office of International Affairs can provide a room in one of the dormitories for all of
the visiting students who are admitted to the Universität Stuttgart. SOCRATES students
apply for a room by sending the form Application for Student Housing to their relevant
SOCRATES Student Advisor not later than 3 months prior to coming to Stuttgart. All other
visiting students send this form to Ms. Gertrud Burger at the Office of International Affairs.

Most of the dormitories are located on the Campus in Stuttgart-Vaihingen and on the
campus of the Pädagogische Hochschule (teachers training college) in Ludwigsburg and
they are mixed. All dormitories can be easily reached within 20 min. from the city campus
by S-Bahn (commuter train). The rooms are equipped with table, chair, bed, wardrobe/
closet, bookshelf and a washbasin. There is a common kitchen for all the members of an
apartment. You must bring your own dishes with you or buy them in Germany. There are
also toilets and showers on each floor.

Please note: Bed-linen and coverlets are not provided! However, it is best to buy them
once you are here.

The rent for a room in a dormitory is DM 300 to 450 per month. It has to be paid by stand-
ing order (all further information about this you will receive at the Office of International
Affairs after your arrival). Rooms can only be rented for a whole month. All students living
in the dormitories have to pay a deposit of DM 500. This has to be paid into a bank on the
forms provided before you will be allowed to move in. You will receive the necessary
forms as part of your Housing Information Package which will be sent to the ad-
dress you have given in your application form some four weeks prior to the time
when you move in.

Remember that you can only move into your room on Mondays to Fridays (unless it is a
holiday). Should you wish to come to Stuttgart before your contract for your room begins
or at the weekend, you can stay overnight at one of the Guest Houses for Young People
or at the Youth Hostel (see next paragraph for further information).


Temporary Accommodation for Young People

Should you come to Stuttgart at a time when you can not move into your dormitory room
immediately, you can stay one or two nights at the youth hostel or at one of the guest
houses for young people run by the Jugendsozialwerk.

The address of the Youth Hostel in Stuttgart is:

Jugendherberge Stuttgart
Haussmannstr. 27
Phone: ++49 711-24 15 83

telephone reservations. The Youth Hostel is very nice and very conveniently located
(approx. 10 min. on foot from the Central Bus and Railway Stations).

You can reach the Youth Hostel by taking the streetcar from within the Central Railway
Station or Hauptbahnhof at the stop called Arnulf-Klett-Platz (follow the sign with a white
U on a blue background). Buy a ticket at one of the orange ticket machines: 1 zone. Take
the streetcar U15 travelling in the direction of Heumaden-Sillenbuch. Get off at the stop
marked Eugensplatz. Walk down Kernerstrasse (downhill) and follow the youth hostel
sign.

The address of the Guest House run by the Jugendsozialwerk is:
Jugendsozialwerk
Richard-Wagner-Str. 2,
phone: ++49 711-24 11 32
fax: ++49 711-23 61 10
The price of a single or double room lies between DM 30,-- and DM 45,-- with breakfast.
Rooms can be reserved in advance. However, the Guest House is situated somewhat
outside of the city centre.

You can reach the Guest House by taking the streetcar from within the Hauptbahnhof at
the stop called Arnulf-Klett-Platz (follow the sign with a white U on a blue background).
Buy a ticket at one of the orange ticket machines: 1 zone. Take the streetcar U15 travel-
ling in the direction of Heumaden-Sillenbuch. Get off at the stop marked Bubenbad. On
your right you will find the Richard-Wagner-Straße and the first house on the right hand
side is the Guest House of the Jugendsozialwerk.


Health Insurance

At registration, all students must demonstrate proof of health insurance as prescribed by
German law. Those students who fulfil one of the following conditions can obtain the nec-
essary proof at one of the local health insurance companies (the Office of International
Affairs will provide you with the addresses upon your arrival).

EU-Citizens:

EU-Citizens are required to present Form E109 or Form E111 which they can obtain from
their home health insurance company. Upon presentation of this form at one of the local
health insurance companies the holder will be presented a Certificate of Sickness Insur-
ance called a Krankenschein. This certificate must be presented to the doctor, dentist or
at a hospital. If you fail to do so you will be expected to pay in cash. At the same time, you
will be given a Krankenversicherungsnachweis which you will need for registration at
the university. Further information can be found in the Welcome-Guide which either your
SOCRATES Student Advisor will give you on arrival in Stuttgart or which you will receive
from Ms. Burger at the Office of International Affairs.

Visiting Students from the USA, Canada, Australia and other non-EU-Citizens:

The local health insurance companies in Stuttgart can exempt you from the compulsory
insurance providing you can demonstrate that you have equivalent coverage from a health

insurance in your own country. However, to avoid financial difficulties because you will be
expected to pay cash straight away and then claim from your own insurance company
yourself, we urgently recommend that you obtain a low-priced health insurance for stu-
dents in Stuttgart. It costs about DM 95 per month and covers medical treatment by a doc-
tor (inclusively dentist) as well as hospital treatment. This insurance also has the advan-
tage that you do not have to pay for treatment in advance because the insurance com-
pany settles directly with the doctor. Further information can be found in the Welcome-
Guide which you will receive from Ms. Burger at the Office of International Affairs or from
your SOCRATES Student Advisor.

The health insurance for students takes effect at the beginning of the Winter Semester (1
October) or the Summer Semester (1 April). Therefore we recommend that students par-
ticipating in the German Intensive Course purchase a travel sickness insurance in their
home country for the month of September or March respectively.


Medical Care

German universities do not provide medical service on campus. Like all other persons with
health insurance, students have a free choice among those doctors who have been regis-
tered by the health insurance company. As mentioned under the paragraph Health Insur-
ance, health insurance companies that offer sickness insurance for students settle directly
with the doctor, dentist or hospital.

If a student has a psychological problem, it is possible to receive assistance from the Psy-
chological Consulting Service of the Student Union Psychologische Beratungsdienst
des Studentenwerks free of charge. The address can be found in the Welcome-Guide
or can be obtained from the Office of International Affairs.


Public Transport

Public transport in the Stuttgart region is very good so it is not essential to have a car.
There is an extensive underground system called the S-Bahn, a streetcar system, the U-
Bahn, and buses. The airport is about thirty minutes away from the Hauptbahnhof by S-
Bahn. It takes about ten minutes on foot to reach the City Centre Campus from the
Hauptbahnhof or the stop called Stadtmitte. The S-Bahn stops in the middle of the Vai-
hingen Campus. This stop is called Universität. It is ten minutes away from the Haupt-
bahnhof on the S1 heading for Herrenberg or the S2 and S3 heading for Vaihingen or
Flughafen. Students who live on the campus in Ludwigsburg take the S4 heading for
Marbach and get off at the station Favoritepark. The S-Bahn ride takes 20 minutes and
requires a ticket with three zones. The dormitories in Ludwigsburg are five minutes away
from the S-Bahn station Favoritepark. Students who have lectures on both the City Centre
Campus and the one in Vaihingen should purchase a Semester Ticket, Semesterfahrk-
arte, which is valid for the whole semester and costs about DM 290 (two zones). Further
information is available at The Office of International Affairs.

Banking

Cash is still frequently used in Germany. Credit cards (Mastercard, Visa etc.) are not ac-
cepted everywhere. You should always check before you order your meal etc., and make
sure that you have sufficient cash with you.

All visiting students need a bank account because rent for a dormitory room can only be
paid for by standing order. The SOCRATES Student Advisor or The Office of International
Affairs can assist you in choosing a suitable bank. Tips can also be found in the Welcome
Guide.


Telephoning

The code for phoning Stuttgart from abroad is as follows: ++49-711-phone number
(++ = the dialling code for a foreign country; 49 = the area code for Germany; 711 = the
local dialling code, e.g. Stuttgart)
If you are phoning within Germany add a 0 to the local dialling code e.g. Stuttgart would
be: 0711 + phone number

If you are dialling a number in Stuttgart from within Stuttgart you do not need the local
area code. To phone from a public telephone box you will need DM 0,20 (2 x 10 Pfen-
nige). Telephone Cards are available priced DM 12 or DM 50. There is a telephone on
each floor in the dormitory. You can also have your own telephone in your dormitory room.
We                                                                                     re-
commend that you buy a telephone yourself at a cost of about DM 50 depending upon the
model chosen. The TELEKOM charges around DM 30 per month for the connection. This
is in addition to the charges for the individual calls.


The City of Stuttgart

Stuttgart, which is the state capital of Baden-Württemberg, has a population of about
560.000. Stuttgart lies in a basin. The lowest point is the River Neckar, which is about 200
metres above sea-level, and the highest is at Stuttgart-Vaihingen at approx. 550 metres.

Stuttgart is the cultural centre of the State of Baden-Württemberg with a wealth of theatres
and concert halls. It is also the home of the world-famous ballet and there are museums
and art-galleries as well as academies of music and art. "Miss Saigon" is being performed
in one of the music halls and “Beauty and the Beast” in the other. Every year thousands
come from far and near to enjoy the Cannstatter Volksfest, a public festival with a huge
amusement park which takes place at the end of September on the common called the
Cannstatter Wasen. In the course of time this festival has become second only to the
Oktoberfest in Munich.

Stuttgart is also one of the largest agriculture, fruit and viticulture centres in the Federal
Republic. Many of the most renown companies like Mercedes-Benz and Bosch have fac-
tories here. In addition, there are numerous smaller companies involved in the production
of machine tools, textiles and clothes, precision instruments, food and luxury items. There
are also companies that specialise in woodworking, leather processing and making shoes
or musical instruments as well as a number of large breweries. There is also a small paper

and chemical industry. Over 300 publishing houses and a highly developed graphic indus-
try has given Stuttgart the reputation of being Germany's "Book Town" No 1.


Climate

The climate in Stuttgart is moderate and the average annual temperature is 10 °C. The
relatively warm summers and mild winters are characteristic of the Stuttgart climate. How-
ever, it is quite possible that the temperature in winter will go far below freezing-point
which makes it necessary to have winter clothes as well as rainproof clothing.

1.     The Subject of Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical Engineering is the major pillar of our industrial employment and production
system besides the branches of Civil Engineering, Chemistry and Electrical Engineering.

With the introduction of modern techniques, Mechanical Engineering has been passing
major changes. Where in former times the construction and production of machines for
industrial purposes was the major task of mechanical engineers, the engineers today have
a much broader field of tasks in the areas of construction, manufacturing energy technol-
ogy, vehicle and engine design, precision technology up to products of machines of every
days life. Totally different products like high speed trains and cardiac pacemaker, laser
tools and modern household machines, modern motor vehicles and high tech bicycles,
whole power plants and small domestic heating facilities are products of Mechanical Engi-
neering creativity. But also consequences of techniques‟ application have to be consid-
ered and investigated. These areas extend the tasks of mechanical engineers. Safety,
environmental, ergonomic and economic aspects are to be mentioned in this connection.

At the Universität Stuttgart excellent modern experimental and computer simulation facili-
ties are available by the scientific combination of research and education. Many linkages
to industries as well as national and international research linkages and projects offer the
possibilities to study at the first line. The teaching and research fields are mentioned in the
following descriptions of the institutes. During their project works and diploma thesis stu-
dents are involved in institutes life and activities. Students who attained the diploma de-
gree with very good success, do have the possibility to increase their knowledge in special
fields by a supplementary doctoral thesis (research based).

2.     Structure of Stage 2 Studies


The Stage 2 Studies („Hauptstudium‟) of Mechanical Engineering require to have passed
the pre-diploma examination in Mechanical Engineering („Maschinenbau-Vordiplom‟) at a
German university or an equal college of higher education. In case that this pre-diploma
examination does not comprise subjects which are part of the examination at the Univer-
sität Stuttgart, recognition is possible with additional requirements. University of Applied
Science degrees („Fachhochschulabschlüsse‟) and international bachelor certificates in
Mechanical Engineering can also be recognised but with the compulsory completion of 3
subjects of the advanced Stage 1 Studies („Grundstudium‟) in order to be synchronised
with the curriculum of the Universität Stuttgart.

The Stage 2 Studies of Mechanical Engineering comprise 8 obligatory subjects, the sub-
ject of Measurement Technology, one non-technical subject, and two main subjects with
project works and the diploma thesis at the end. The obligatory subjects are chosen from
8 groups.

The two main subjects are chosen from a selection of 40 different subjects. Main subjects
consist of core and complementary subjects; the lectures of both together amount to 10
hours per week. The core subjects are obligatory for the respective main subject. The two
main subjects can be combined with each other and with any obligatory subject. The ex-
ams in a main subject can be either oral or oral and written or written.

In each of the two main subjects a project work, the so called Studienarbeit, has to be car-
ried through. It represents a supervised research work of about 350 hours at an institute or
in industry (in close cooperation with the institute). The results have to be presented orally.

In addition, a practical course is required. It consists of 8 experiments from which 4 to 6
have to be part of the respective main subject. The remaining experiments should be cho-
sen at will from other fields of study (General Mechanical Engineering Practical).

The final thesis, the so called Diplomarbeit, completes the academic education. It is cover-
ing a scope of 4 months. The student has to show that he is capable of dealing on his own
with a problem in the field of Mechanical Engineering within a given period. The type of
problem should be taken from one of the two main subjects and is supervised by aca-
demic staff.

Both, Studien- and Diplomarbeit (final project) can easily be carried through within an ex-
change programme.

The main subjects represent the fields of research of the institutes of the faculties of Me-
chanical Engineering and of related faculties. In the following chapter, the institutes pre-
sent their respective teaching programme provided for the various main and obligatory
subjects. The courses of these programmes are only part of the Stage 2 Studies. In con-
sultation with the responsible lecturer, the contents of each lecture can be examined orally
and certified for studies at other universities.

It is a prerequisite of any industrial production to know what kind of internal relations exist
in a company (organisation - technology - finances) and between companies and their sur-
rounding (procurement - marketing).
In its first part, the lecture exemplifies types of organisation (company structure, structure
of work flow, management style) as well as different forms of business organisation and
business mergers. Furthermore, a survey is given of production and its adjoining depart-
ments (ahead, after or parallel ones), e.g. production design, operation and process plan-
ning, testing, procurement, marketing).
The second part views cost accounting, efficiency calculation and capital investment plan-
ning. Apart from that, basic matters of factory planning are discussed.

tion and assembly technology. It starts with single operating functions and leads to tool
technology to interlink different means of production and for automatic assembly. Function
and build-up of handling gear and assembly equipment as well as of industrial robots are
being explained and limits to their operative range are discussed.
In relation to the basic terms of automation technology the necessity of automation in vari-
ous fields of production will be demonstrated. The lecture analyses technical conditions of
automation and its effects on men. It examines tasks and means to automate the flow of
technical information starting at the level of product design up to the level of machine con-
trol. Special conditions and difficulties with the automation of various production processes
are being exemplified, focussing on commercial aspects of automation projects.

Factory Planning I (Bischoff)
Methoden der Fabrikplanung I
Planning a factory does not only demand a profound knowledge about the design of work
stations and material flow, about technical and information-related processes, but it also
requires a suitable instrument to handle the "planning" in a target-oriented and consistent
way. Factory planning is a problem definition from which a multitude of single tasks de-
rives which are to be analysed and coordinated in accordance with the targets established
by the company. The focus of the lecture is both on the technical solution of these single
tasks and on the coordination of operations. The occurring problems are being exemplified
by a case study.

The aim of metrology and inspection in the production process is the collection and
evaluation of information about the quality of products and processes. Due to the high ex-
pectations in product quality, metrology and inspection have to follow the complete prod-
uct development. The expression „metrology“ does not only mean technical methods to
collect measurement data, but also contains organisational and management aspects that
are related to the production.

Factory Planning II (Stender)
Methoden der Fabrikplanung II
Material flow is considered as a unit, in regard to public traffic network as well as to single
work stations. At the beginning, the location needs to be chosen, then the long-term plan-
ning of a company require, for example, a master plan for house building. The determina-
tion of production facilities within single operation areas makes it possible to calculate the
necessary building volume. After defining the material flow you can join together various
areas to an optimum lay-out, using methods of operation research. Case studies will em-
phasise this focus.

Satisfying customer requirements in the areas of product features and services provided,
is a decisive factor in competitive success. A change in thinking has taken place in fault
recognition where the orientation is towards preventive measures to avoid faults in the
manufacture of products. The tasks of quality management are defined within the frame-
work of this background, where all departments and employees, from marketing to cus-
tomer service, must play their part in system-oriented quality management. The various
quality assurance tasks and processes are dealt with, particularly quality planning and
guidance. The quality strategies are verified by examples and experiences from actual
practice in industry. The actions necessary to adapt the organisation according to its op-
erational extent, to produce optimum effect of the measures, are indicated and the quality
costs which act as a standard for measuring the effectiveness of the quality assurance
activities, are clarified.

Usage and Programming of Microprocessors (Haas)
Einsatz und Programmierung von Mikroprozessoren
This lecture provides an overview of the architecture and the implementation of micro-
processors which are suitable for steering and controlling applications. The hardware de-
scription starts with a decomposition of the compute kernel into independent operational
modules; the functioning of the compute kernel is described by a standardised arithmetic
registry transfer language. Additional modules which are necessary for the composition of
microprocessor systems are explained by examples. The programming is based on a
standardised operating system which contains real-time facilities. The internal structure of
the operating system kernel, the organisation of the filesystem and the programming and
process environment are made clear by several graphical and procedural descriptions and
by some simple C-programming examples.

       Institute of Human Factors and Technology Management (IAT)


Technology Management (Bullinger)
Technologiemanagement
Competitiveness demands superior problem solutions which base on trend-setting prod-
ucts with a lead in the field of technology and quality. Competition becomes more and
more a competition of technologies. Technology management connects business man-
agement with technological know-how and includes the following items: technology devel-
opment, technology design and technology assessment. The lectures impart information
about new methods and procedures concerning the handling of technology: for the identi-
fication of relevant technology developments and the evaluation of technology tendencies,
for the evaluation of strong and weak points of a company in its technology fields, for the
development of organisation forms in order to realise new technologies, for the steering
concerning development and introduction of new technologies and for the discovery of
possible risks.

Human Factors I/II (Bullinger)
Arbeitswissenschaft I/II
Part I: Ergonomics has an interdisciplinary approach which bears on the human and eco-
nomical goals regarding work design. Both purposes aim at the creation of humanitarian
working conditions in connection with a business structure that is organised for economi-
cal success. Therefore, the emphasis of the lecture lies in the fields of ergonomics (Hu-
man Factors I) and work system design (Human Factors II).

Energy Tech./ Design & Manuf. Eng.                                     Mechanical Engineering


The lecture 'Ergonomics' deals with the fields of physiology and psychology which are im-
portant for the human factors. Based on these facts the ergonomic perfect design of the
work environment and work place can be shown. Furthermore, rules and recommenda-
tions for the integrated ergonomic product design and for the human-computer-interface
design are discussed.

Part II: The methods and basic elements of the work system design play the major role in
the second part of the lecture. The discussion covers work analysing methods, proceed-
ings of work pattern, qualification of staff and work organisation. In this connection, the
introduction of new work structures (teamwork) is emphasised.
Exercises and examples show the proceedings at the planning of new work structures.
With task design the interpretation of work places can be practised and examples present
the product improvement which is caused by the ergonomic design of working materials.

Operating Information Systems (Bullinger, Nöstdal)
Führungsinformationssysteme
Operating information serves the decision-making process in a company. The lecture
gives you an idea of the index-orientated business operating system by means of busi-
ness and data models. Apart from content-orientated questions (planning and operating
systems) the lectures also deal with compression problems (index systems, graphs), as-
pects of adequence (extension, consolidation) and relevance (CSF). Software solutions
(MIS, DSS, EIS) are shown with regard to applicable instruments and the integration of
operating information systems. The emphasis lies on decentralised organisation structures
in production (WOP) and administration (computer-supported teamwork).

Technology Assessment (Bullinger)
Technikfolgenabschätzung
Responsible engineering activity presupposes an occupation with the results of developed
technologies. The lecture presents methods and procedures for the discovery and prog-
nostication of technical potentials (chances and risks). Alternative options for development
and use of certain technologies are built aided by scenario techniques. With regard to the
choice of a development direction the ideas of the social discourse have to be considered,
too. The lecture presents these new proceedings and illustrates them guided by exam-
ples.

Mathematical Methods of Production Planning (Lentes)
Mathematische Methoden der Produktionsplanung
In contrary to the improvisation, planning is more systematic with respect to a pursued
goal as a rational running decision-making process. Today, planning becomes more im-
portant, namely because of the internal and external changing circumstances. New
mathematical planning methods have been developed in the past few years. They enable
enterprises to analyse decision problems and to solve complex optimising tasks either with
or without the assistance of computer technologies (e.g. based on linear optimalisation,
waiting queue theory, heuristic proceeding). From an engineer's point of view the funda-
mentals, possibilities and limits of exact and heuristic planning methods have to be dis-
cussed and their applications have to be shown guided by practical examples.

Kinetic Theory of Gases (Runge)
Kinetische Gastheorie
In contrast to classical thermodynamics which deals with macroscopic systems and is
based on experience, the kinetic theory of gases considers molecules on the basis of axi-
oms. With a simple model describing molecules as billiard balls the equation of state of
ideal gases can be derived. In this way thermodynamic relations can be established even
when experiments are difficult to perform, for instance in the region of low pressure.

Low Temperature Engineering (Runge)
Tieftemperaturtechnik
Low temperature engineering is an application of thermodynamics and part of energy en-
gineering. Nevertheless, due to some peculiarities in this field not all tasks can be solved
by common methods. The thermal conductivity and heat capacity for instance change
their values drastically in the region of low temperatures. The working fluids partly exhibit
unusual behaviour as well. Refrigeration processes with adiabatic throttling, with isentropic
and isochoric expansion are feasible. By adequate combination of different processes the
COP can be influenced in a favourable manner.

Thermal Radiation (Runge)
Thermische Strahlung
The energy transport by thermal radiation plays a greater role than often assumed. Even
at ambient temperature radiation is sometimes predominant and in low temperature engi-
neering it must often be taken into account. For calculation one needs the equation of
Planck (or Wien or Rayleigh-Jeans), the Stefan-Boltzmann equation and the laws of
Kirchhoff, Lambert, Bouguer and Beer. In general, radiation depends on the wave length
or frequency. This is particularly true for gases; their radiation can be described illustra-
tively as stream of photons.

Thermodynamic Variables and Equations of State (Runge)
Thermodynamische Zustandsgrößen und -gleichungen
One reason why thermodynamics is considered as difficult science might stem from the
great number of variables. Nearly thirty different variables are needed for different practi-
cal applications, each of the variables carrying its own name.

The practical meaning of the different variables is explained, for each of them a thermo-
dynamic definition is given and relationships between them are discussed. Finally the
variables of state are derived from the fundamental equations.

Temperature Measurement (Runge)
Temperaturmessung
Temperature is of central importance in thermodynamics - not only due to its name. Cor-
responding to that, temperature measurements are very important for the applications of
thermodynamics in engineering. Starting with the concept of temperature different tem-
perature scales are discussed in the light of their historical development. After that, the
thermometers using different principles of measurement are treated. Such principles are:
the thermal extension of solids, liquids and gases, the vapour pressure and most impor-
tant - with regard to processing electrical signals - the electrical properties. Finally the cor-
rect installation of the gauge is shown which is a necessary prerequisite for a good meas-
urement.
