Research at the Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology
Teaching and research at the Institute of Timber Engineering and Wood Technology are inextricably linked. This commitment to a so-called “research-based teaching” is expressed by the fact, that all teaching contents are directly influenced by outputs of research activities. The institute provides a research-friendly environment, where the scientific staff is given the chance to follow their curiosity; in short: “research needs freedom!” Furthermore, it is common practise to refer to recognised fundamental knowledge of the scientific community as well as to present and discuss new research results on an international level e.g. in the frame of INTER-Meetings or at the WCTE. The institute encourages an international exchange for students and researchers. We can refer to successful cooperation within Europe, the USA, Canada as well as Japan.
Research at the institute can be divided into the following four main areas. Worth pointing out, these topics can overlap and interact with each other in the frame of specific research projects and dissertations:
