Mechanical engineering at the University Karlsruhe (TH) has a long and obligatory tradition. Outstanding personalities have fundamentally influenced the teaching and research in the field of mechanical engineering.
Following this Tradition , a didactic approach has been developed at the IPEK- Institute of Product Engineering, that enables an engineer to acquire the necessary knowledge under the conditions of advancing globalisation and the resulting changed requirements at a high level:
The "Karlsruhe Teaching Model for Product Development - KaLeP" is an integrated training system that is oriented towards the development process in practice.
The students acquire practical product development skills.
