Fraunhofer IPK

Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology

For Students

We offer engagement with exciting issues in basic and applied research areas in the field of Virtual Product Creation together with high quality supervision in an innovative working environment.

The Virtual Product Creation division of Fraunhofer IPK offers students a wide range of practical hands-on experience in both basic research projects and industrial research.

You will be integrated not only in the mission of the particular research and development project, but in the daily work and life of the Institute as well. We invite you to participate in events, conferences and briefings, and you will also have the opportunity to attend training events for your own particular discipline, completely free of charge.

Scientific Activities

We offer a diversified range of themes:

  • for Bachelor‘s, Master‘s, and Diploma theses and student research projects, as well as
  • for computer-science-oriented project work and design exercises.

Whichever path you choose, you are certain to find both challenging topics and expert supervision and guidance.


Having the opportunity to apply theory to practice whilst still at university is a huge advantage – both for your course of study and your later career path.
