Develop and pass on knowledge
For me, scientific work and the transfer of knowledge are directly related.
Since the beginning of my work I have been designing teaching units which have developed from initial exercises to application-oriented seminars for interested engineers* and business people. In demand are seminars on materials testing, fracture mechanics and materials science in the field of steel.
I am involved in teaching at various universities:
- University Duisburg-Essen for Civil Engineers (Master) > Read more
- University of Dortmund, for Civil Engineers (Master) > Read more
- Bergakademie TU Freiberg for materials engineers (materials application seminar) > Read more
- RWTH Aachen University as part of the newly installed international Master’s program in Computational Mechanics > Read more
I am involved in the additional steel studies of the VDEH Steel Institute (Steel Academy) and in the training of welding engineers at the RWTH Aachen in cooperation with the SLV Duisburg.
I am pleased to see how teaching and exchange with universities promotes interaction between young engineers and current research projects.
