Around 500 foundries in Germany supply the automotive industry, mechanical engineering and electrical engineering with high-quality cast components. No wind turbine or motor vehicle would move without cast parts. Even many small parts, such as those required for precision mechanics or medical technology, are cast. Casting is the fastest way from material to component. Foundry engineers have to provide engineering support throughout the entire process - from simulation calculations, preparation of the liquid metal, casting, solidification of the molten metal and subsequent further processing of the casting. You will be responsible for production as well as being involved in material selection and product development.
The Master's degree programme in Foundry Technology is primarily aimed at graduates who have a Bachelor's degree with a focus on foundry technology or similar. The Master's programme is geared towards the modern development of foundry technology and highlights in-depth aspects of process engineering and quality assurance, for example. In addition, students have the opportunity to choose subjects from the university's programme in the fields of mechanical engineering, materials science or economics, depending on their interests.
