Welcome to the Institute of Technical Mechanics!

Engineering mechanics is an important foundation to support numerous engineering subjects; we supervise JKU students majoring mainly in mechatronics and plastics technology. During the first and second semester, we offer comprehensive introductory courses in kinematics, statics, strength theory, and dynamics. Additional courses cover the experimental and numerical methods in mechanics, continuum and structure mechanics, as well as multi-field theories. In regard to teaching and research, we have a modern vibration and sound measurement laboratory as well as powerful computer systems. We pay special attention to implementing funded, evaluated research projects. The institute is also available as a partner to conduct industrial vibration and sound measurement projects.
