Experience, enjoy and live research!

The Faculty of Production Engineering not only wants to provide its students with a sound scientific grounding: Research-based learning also strengthens other important key personal competences. In our teaching projects, aspiring engineers learn the scientific methods that enable them how to tackle technical issues in their field and develop innovative solutions for related problems.
Totally detached from the earth
The FORAREX student experiment has been selected and will launch into space in the spring of 2019 with the REXUS 25/26 sounding rockets from the ESRANGE Space Center in northern Sweden. The FORAminifera Rocket EXperiment investigates the behavior and shell growth of foraminifera under weightless conditions. www.forarex.de
Studying in the fast lane
Hockenheim, here we come! This season, the University’s Formula Student Electric Team qualified once again for the world’s largest student-designer competition. Filled with enthusiasm for motor racing and attention for detail, members of the student team “Bremergy Racing? designed and built their own racing car. www.bremergy.uni-bremen.de
Light take off: Steel in the air
How long can steel sty in the air? – This is the basic question that has to be answered in the annual student competition “Steel flies!? On July 2 and 3, 2014, the competition was held in Bremen’s ÖVB Arena. The Bremen team exploited their home advantage to become winners of the flying competition.
The dream of flying
Fascinated by ultra-light aircraft, the “Academic Flying Group? in the Faculty of Production Engineering built the ZODIAC CH601XL. A self-organized group of students gathers hands-on flying experience during time off from studies. www.fvhf.uni-bremen.de
Quick reactions are called for
Held annually in Germany since 2006, ChemCar is a competition in which students in the areas of Process Engineering and Chemistry compete against each other with self-developed, reaction-driven vehicles. In 2013, “Team BremChem? from the University of Bremen was victorious despite the strong international competition.
Good students fly high
After the successful launch of ZEpHyR 1 (ZARM Experimental Hybrid Rocket) in 2016, a new sounding rocket is being developed at ZARM. The ZEpHyR 2 shall weigh 170 kg. The hybrid rocket engine, which utilises paraffin wax and liquid oxygen, will be powerful enough to lift the rocket to an apogee of approximately 35 km. Interested students are the most important part of the successful development of the complete rocket. www.zephyr-space.com
