Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INATECH)

The Faculty of Engineering has been active from an engineering perspective with its own institute of sustainability research since 2015.

The focal points of the Department of Sustainable Systems Engineering (INATECH) conceived together with the Freiburg Fraunhofer institutes include:

  • Sustainable materials that can be produced and used in an energy- and resource-efficient way
  • Energy systems that enable a reliable supply of renewable energy as well as its storage and efficient use,
  • and so-called resilience, which ensures the resilience and adaptability of systems to short- and long-term changes, such as natural disasters or climate change.

Changing the world for the better!
