Joining Technology

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Joining Technology
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2021
Module code: WiMb21NT111
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: according to optional course list
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:

[updated 22.05.2023]

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will understand the basics of the structure and properties of metals with regard to their weldability. They will be able to explain the way in which joining production processes (fusion and pressure welding processes, adhesive bonding) work and what they can be used for. They will be able to select appropriate processes and identify and define their key manufacturing parameters to achieve the desired product properties.
This knowledge will enable them to evaluate the technical and economic suitability of metals and joining processes for the manufacture of established, as well as new products. Furthermore, they will be able to identify and solve technical joining problems that could for example, lead to undesirable product properties.
