Cooperating Institute at RWTH

The scientific leadership of the engineering part of the M.Sc. MME-CAME lies with the Institute of General Mechanics (IAM) of the RWTH Aachen University.

Institute of General Mechanics (IAM)

The scientific leadership of the M.Sc. Management and Engineering in Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering lies with the Institute of General Mechanics (IAM) of the RWTH Aachen University. Today, the institute has a permanent staff of 41, including 18 research associates and scientific assistants as well as 22 employees and apprentices in the administrative division, laboratories, construction office, and electrical and mechanical workshops. In addition, approximately 80 student assistants are engaged to help with teaching and research.

In August 2013, Bernd Markert was appointed full professor at the RWTH Aachen University and Director of the Institute of General Mechanics in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. His present research focuses on the theory and numerics of general coupled problems, computational and experimental biomechanics and structural mechanics, as well as extended continuum methods, such as phase-field models.

The research at the IAM pursues the idea of a holistic approach by combining the expertise in Theoretical, Numerical and Experimental Mechanics in the sense of "Everything from a single source.“ As the name of the institute suggests, the addressed research topics are manifold ranging from modeling super-alloy turbine blades over lifetime assessment of high-speed train components to simulating and experimental testing of degenerated human knee joints using bioreactors and a micro-CT scanner.
