Impact of the I3 Lab on teaching

The I3-research program has a significant impact on teaching, specifically on student theses and project works. A project connected to the hardware prototype has been carried out in the module ET-Praktikum.

We are currently developing the module ”Non-Destructive Materials and Component Testing”, cross-linking mechanical, civil, electrical engineering and materials sciences. The strongly interdisciplinary lectures and lab sessions are offered to master students who are interested to learn about non-destructive testing of materials and parts, which is an important field across engineering and material science industries. Four institutes from four different disciplines, i.e. mechanical engineering, civil engineering, materials science and computer science / electrical engineering strive to provide the students with the knowledge and understanding for interdisciplinary problem solving beyond a single discipline. In this course students learn to link innovative defect detection approaches to material physics and to the mechanics of components, further, to evaluation, interpretation, big data management, transmission of data, and cybersecurity. While the theory is explained in the lectures, the students apply the NDT approaches and technologies during the lab sessions in the experimental test halls and labs at TUHH.
