Welcome to the Institute of Structural Lightweight Design!

The working area of our institute is dedicated to the development of lightweight concepts and components for industrial applications. For both, academic teaching and research the institute pursues a holistic approach in the scientific field of lightweight design. Based on the classical fields of engineering design and structural analysis special attention is given to materials, joining technologies, manufacturing processes and integration of mechatronic systems.

The institute is assigned to the Department of Mechatronics.
