WiSe SWS: 2 ECTS:3 Examination: written(90 min)

Address: Technische Universität München Boltzmannstr.15 85748 Garching bei München

Room: MW2050

Time: Wednesday 17:00-18:30 Uhr

Corresponding Moodle-Course (Material) Guest Access Passcode: DiTeD2324


The lecture series "Digital Twin in Engineering and Design" aims to provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary research topics and practical use cases of the digital twin in engineering and design. Lecturers from different chairs and schools of TUM as well as from industry will provide insights into

  • The diverse aspects and application areas of digital twins, from production and process engineering to additive manufacturing, machine tools, logistics and (interior) architecture.
  • (Design) technical challenges associated with the development of standardized digital twin.
  •  The potentials of using digital twin, from risk analysis prior to plant commissioning to operational collaboration with humans using augmented reality or active usage with an executable digital twin.
