For the Wi-Ing Camp on February 12, 2020, interested students came together at TU Freiberg to experience a day full of insights into the diversity of the course industrial engineering.
In addition to materials science and mechanical engineering, the engineering focus of the course also included a trip to process engineering. The lecture “Mobility through electricity – what will drive us tomorrow?” gave an overview of the importance of mobility and fuels in society and their impact on the environment. The advantages and disadvantages of various concepts for mobility were also presented in this context: combustion engines, electric motors and fuel cells. Furthermore, the lecturer Florian Keller taught the students procedural steps and priorities of an alternative production of fuels, like fuels from electricity (power-to-liquids) or from waste (gasification and Fischer-Tropsch synthesis).
