PLM in teaching

CONTACT supports excellence in research and teaching through a broad-based university program. It allows us to provide students with access to state-of-the-art PLM software and enables them to gain practical knowledge relating to the development of smart products and production systems.

Since its introduction in 2011, numerous national and international universities and research institutes have taken advantage of our cooperative venture.

Endowed chair

The Chinese German College for Postgraduate Studies in Shanghai has had a CONTACT chair for product development since July 2017. The college, founded in 1998 by Tongji University and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), trains executives who are familiar with both cultures. The master programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and automotive engineering, economics and business law are multilingual (CN, DE and EN) and include a stay in Germany for Chinese students. Students at the German partner universities, on the other hand, can transfer to Shanghai and spend one or two semesters abroad.


The RoboCup is an international initiative to promote research in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. In the competitions, scientists and students from all over the world compete against each other with their self-programmed football robots. We are lending our support to B-Human, a top RoboCup team, from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the University of Bremen. Its wins so far: six world championships , nine German and European championships.
