New substances and materials form the basis for new technological developments.

The Faculty of Materials Engineering is involved in the analysis, characterization and testing of raw materials, materials and components, and the development of new materials, systems, and optimized production and processing methods.

There are a large number of different laboratories in the Faculty of Material Engineering for students to use for their research. We works with businesses, especially regional business, in various areas. The Faculty is involved in numerous projects in collaboration with companies in the industry as well as education and research institutes, for example the Energie Campus Nürnberg and the Institute for Chemistry, Materials and Product Development (OHM-CMP), and we give our students the opportunity to participate in these projects as well.
