Technical University of Munich

Founded in 1875, the Institute for Machine Tools and Industrial Management (iwb) at the Technical University of Munich is one of the largest research institutions for production technology in Germany. It compasses two chairs at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Garching near Munich. The research content and the thematic focuses of the iwb lie in the areas of manufacturing technology, machine tools, assembly technologies and robotics, joining and separation technology, as well as in the field of production management and logistics. The staff at the iwb work in research, teaching, and industrial transfer in these fields. From the fields of engineering, electrical engineering, physics, IT and business administration about 80 research associates are employed by the iwb. Around 25 employees active in the iwb’s workshops, laboratories and administration ensure that the solutions are both implemented and long-term available. In addition, around 200 student assistants support the iwb.
