Lightweight Systems Engineering makes Resource-efficient Mobility possible

This anniversary event focuses on lightweight systems engineering as the driving force of innovation for mobility in the digital age. In the course of global megatrends like digitalization, sustainability, urbanization, connectivity and mobility, novel materials, technologies and their systems become necessary to support the changing needs of the world's population which is projected to rise to over nine billion in 2050.

Novel System Engineering blazes the Trail for Customized Carbon Fibers

On June 10, as a highlight of the anniversary celebration of the Lightweight Engineering Symposium, the Research Center for Carbon Fibers Saxony (RCCF) will debut its new laboratory. The RCCF, founded in April 2016, bundles TU Dresden's expertise in lightweight fibers with extreme strength and stiffness. To this end, the ILK and the Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology (ITM) are forming a joint research initiative to examine the continuous development processes from the fiber's raw material to the finished component.
