Science and industry hand-in-hand: The professors and lecturers of Esslingen University of Applied Sciences offer their services to provide advice and support for projects being undertaken in companies. The faculty working in Engineering and Mechatronics & Electrical Engineering on the Göppingen campus have a wide range of expertise at their disposal. The fields range from electronics, digitisation and marketing through to questions concerning data protection.
Research for and with industry: Applied research which leads to an exploitable product is important particularly for small and medium size enterprises. The university institute has already done successful consultancy work for many companies and offers advice on funding options (federal state, government, EU, etc.) so that they, too, can put their product on the right track.
Besides the laboratory facilities, you can hire the lecture rooms and theatres for training courses and events as well – including refreshments and catering. In the Internet there is a list of the equipment and the rooms which are available for you to use, and the terms and conditions of use.
