The Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design(SLA) has been researching and teaching in the field of lightweight design for almost seventy years. During this time, the institute built up its extensive expertise in the optimization of space and aerospace structures and continues to develop it further. In addition, lightweight design is being applied more and more on a broad scale today. Therefore, the SLA develops mobility applications, sports equipment, and biomedical technology. Always in the focus: the structure.
The Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design is always seeking motivated and dedicated members of staff who want to shape not only the education of students at an elite university, but also cutting-edge research in an international environment.
