The Chair of Sustainable Manufacturing & Life Cycle Engineering provides a wide range of core competencies in the fields of Sustainability in Production and Life Cycle Engineering. We developed the concept of Total Life Cycle Management which serves as framework for our research and education activities which take place in close cooperation with industry.
The chair is part of the Institute of Machine Tools and Production Technology and we are embedded in the Technische Universität Braunschweig. Due to the global scope and complexity of our research areas, international cooperation is an essential issue for us. As a major cornerstone of that we form the Joint German-Australian Research Group “Sustainable Manufacturing and Life Cycle Engineering together with the Life Cycle Engineering and Management Research Group of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
