In order to optimize these processes a closed loop use of the involved materials and a minimization of energy based emissions are aimed. Considering these demands, the teaching program of the Department of Material Sciences and Process Engineering covers basic courses on Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Process Engineering and Wood Science and Technology, as well as special lectures in these fields. The research work of the Department is reflected in the names of the institutes which are the Institutes of Wood Science and Technology, of Physics and Material Sciences and for Chemical and Energy Engineering. Cross sectional areas are bio-thermodynamics, mass transfer and drying, natural, composite and bio-materials, machining of materials, as well as measuring and methodology.
