The lecture is based on the book "G. Fasching: Materials for Electrical Engineering; (in German) Springer-Verlag, 2006".


Teaching methods

The lecture takes place ONLINE. The corresponding lecture tube please find in the TUWEL course.

Mode of examination

Written and oral

Additional information

Because of the overlap with the "Werkstoffe" (LV.-Nr. 366 104) this course is not recognized as an optional subject for the electrical engineering degree.

Examination modalities

The lecture examination is both in the written and oral format. Duration maximum 105 min. Only a pocket calculator is allowed as an aid. The material is given by the lectures and the corresponding chapters of the book "Werkstoffe der Elektrotechnik" and the script "Mechanische Werkstoffeigenschaften" (see documents).

With regard to the current situation, we will hold the exam either in face-to-face or online format, depending on the situation. Please note this when registering for exams (the exams are marked accordingly).

Registrations for the written exams via TISS. Oral examinations take place in the following days by individual arrangement.

Course coordinator: Prof. F. Keplinger / Prof. S. Schmid
