In the Bachelor's programme, students of materials engineering, materials sciences and industrial engineering specialising in materials and process technology learn the basics of the glassy state and the industrial manufacturing process. The basic course materials technology glass is anchored in the curriculum of materials engineering. Students of business administration and engineering, materials and process engineering can take the lecture as an optional subject. For students of materials science, the lecture glass technology is anchored in the curriculum.

Basic course material technology glass
In the basic course material technology glass, an overview of the glassy state and the industrial manufacturing process is given to the students. The glassy state is described as the basis for the material properties, while the aggregate state is described from the point of view of thermodynamics and structure. The most important material properties, such as viscosity, thermal expansion as well as optical and mechanical properties, are then discussed for technological application. In addition, the industrial process chain will be discussed, starting with the raw materials, through melting to forming.
The course is structured in 2 lecture hours and one exercise hour per week and is offered in the winter semester. The written examination lasts 90 minutes and is offered three times a year. The course is given in German.
In the basic course glass technology students of material sciences the basics of the glassy state, of glass ceramics and of the industrial process chain of glass production are taught. In addition to the contents, which are also taught in the basic course material technology glass, this course provides a deeper insight into glass development. In the exercises, the students are specifically confronted with the evaluation of measurement data.
The module is offered in the summer semester with 4 lecture hours and 2 exercise hours per week. The exam lasts 120 minutes and is offered three times a year. The course is given in German.
