Head of the Institute

Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hubertus Murrenhoff

Fields of Study

Design Engineering and Development, Drive Technology, Production Engineering and Plastics Technology

Main Focus

Research and lecturing into all fields of fluid power technology. (i.e. hydraulics and pneumatics)

Research Focus

Research and from its results derived lecturing into all fields of fluid power in one of the biggest centres of this kind world-wide. Apart from mechanical engineering, this also includes other interdisciplinary subjects, such as information technology, control engineering, electrical engineering, tribology and chemistry.

  • The research activities are structured into five sientific groups:
  • Tribology and Fluid Analysis
  • Pump and Motor Technology
  • Valve technology and Mechatronics
  • System Engineering and Control Technology
  • Pneumatics

Detailed information with regard to current projects in these groups, its numerous research activities and national and international industry contacts and the research staff can be found on our homepage referenced below.
