Education at the LLK
At LLK, practice-oriented teaching is on an equal footing with research and alongside diverse industrial cooperations. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Landshut offers the bachelor's degree program in mechanical engineering with a major in "lightweight design", the bachelor's degree program in "automotive and commercial vehicle technology", the master's degree program in "lightweight design and simulation" and, in cooperation with the Ingolstadt University of Technology and CADFEM GmbH, the advanced master's degree program in "applied computational mechanics". Approximately 900 students from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering attend lectures and practical courses at the LLK. In addition, students are involved in current research projects via design, project and final theses, where they are able to work with state-of-the-art laboratory and software equipment.
The facilities of the additive manufacturing laboratory are used across faculties by students and staff at Landshut University of Applied Sciences for a wide variety of projects, bachelor's and master's theses, and research projects. The goal is, among other things, for students to learn the possibilities and limitations of additive manufacturing in practical application, in order to give them an understanding of the entire process of "Design of Additive Manufacturing", from 3D printable design to topology optimization to generative product design.
