wbk Institute of Production Science at the Karls-
ruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), with close to
100 employees, is part of the department of me-
chanical engineering.
It is divided into three divisions:
• Manufacturing and Materials Technology
• Machines, Equipment and Process
• Production Systems
They are headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Volker
Schulze, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Fleischer and Prof.
Dr.-Ing. Gisela Lanza. All three of them focus on
practical research, teaching and innovations in
the area of production engineering at KIT.
In addition to conducting research in the con-
ventional fields of mechanical and plant engi-
neering, wbk concentrates on production engi-
neering and enabling technologies, for example
for electric mobility and lightweight construction.
The institute investigates if and how the new
materials can be processed using conventional
production technologies and systems. It also ex-
amines the upscaling and design of future pro-
duction facilities and their global networks.
Together with partners from industry, wbk works
on solutions for the broad field of production
engineering and develops the methods and pro-
cesses for the production of tomorrow.
