About the workshop
The metal and plastics workshop can be used by any student without special prior knowledge. We will advise you on your plans, provide information on processes and production and show you how to use the workshops and machines.
Together with you, we will produce your prototype, your idea, your model. We will provide you with personal protective equipment, safety shoes, safety goggles and hearing protection. If you have any questions, please send an email to the workshop management.
We look forward to your questions, projects and ideas.
