The Institute of Mechanics and Mechatronics is assigned to the Faculty of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering of the Vienna University of Technology and is engaged in the analysis, synthesis and optimization of mechanical and mechatronic systems, in research and teaching. We are very successful in the area of fundamental research and applied research (industry cooperation), and the Institute includes approx. 80 members of staff.
In the area of teaching most of the courses offered by the Institute are associated to the curricula of mechanical engineering, industrial engineering and process engineering. In addition to the compulsory courses in the subjects of mechanics, machine dynamics as well as measuring and control engineering, numerous advanced courses are offered.
