Overview of the area of innovation Materials and Manufacturing Engineering

Having excellent research infrastructure in the fields of material sciences and manufacturing engineering, Berlin provides best conditions for science and economy.

The high quality and competitiveness of German products is secured by innovative measurement and testing technologies. The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) makes an important contribution to this under the guideline “Safety in technology and chemistry”. The BAM has great expertise in such fields as materials engineering, material protection and surface technology, chemical safety engineering and non-destructive testing.

It is also worth highlighting the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin for Materials and Energy (HZB), the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ), which deals with the growth of crystalline materials from basic research to technical maturity, and the different institutes based in Adlershof with key subjects such as molecular materials, nanomaterials or semiconductors and semiconductor devices. 

With the Produktionstechnisches Zentrum PTZ, a double institute consisting of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology (IPK) and the TU Berlin with the Institute for Machine Tools and Factory Operation (IWF), Berlin is home to a top-class scientific institution with a global reputation in manufacturing science. The research activities in industrial factory operation include the development of process technologies and manufacturing facilities as well as their modeling in terms of information technology and simulation. Other key subjects are surface and joining technology, automation as well as machine tools and manufacturing engineering.

Berlin’s universities of applied sciences such as the Beuth Hochschule für Technik Berlin and the HTW Berlin are also well positioned in manufacturing science.

With the Center for Welding-Related Instruction and Experimentation SLV Berlin-Brandenburg, Berlin hosts a renowned research facility for modern lightweight materials and innovative welding procedures.
