Labs

The Faculty of Business Administration and Engineering has well-equipped labs where our students can put theory into practice throughout the course of their degree.

Technology Lab

Mainly independent execution of experiments/tasks in small groups in a wide variety of engineering areas, such as:

  • Control and automation technology, measurement technology
  • Electrical Engineering/Electronics
  • Design/Mechanics
  • Lighting technology

Lab Equipment

The technology lab has 12 workstations which are equipped with the following standard equipment:

  • PC with Office programmes
  • 2 digital multimeters
  • 1 double mains connection
  • 1 digital oscilloscope

In addition to this standard equipment there are 2 soldering workstations, 3 programmable logic controllers and 1 industrial process and control board for practice with the necessary special programmes.

Connected to the Technology Lab are:

  • The CAD lab with 8 CAD workstations and the ProEngineer und SolidWorks CAD programmes in Room H 0.02
  • The CAM lab with 2 3D printers (Dimension BST, Ojet30pro) and a four-colour photo-plotter for A0 drawings and posters in Room H 0.10
  • A student workshop with a lathe, a column milling and boring machine, a bench drilling machine and a box column drill.
