The Mechanical Engineering Campus of Leibniz University Hannover

The Mechanical Engineering Campus represents a milestone in the history of Leibniz University Hannover. It is the largest new building project of the university and is scheduled to start its final operation in the winter semester 2019/20. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering will then be able to concentrate its performance and diversity of subjects at a common location, opening up completely new opportunities for cooperation in research and education.

On the 20,760 square meters of the main usable area of the campus, three institute buildings, a research building Dynamics of Energy Conversion, a lecture hall building, a cafeteria, a seminar and communication building as well as a technology building, which supplies the campus, are being constructed. The buildings will be arranged around an idyllic green area, so that a modern and pleasant learning, teaching and working atmosphere is provided for the approximately 5,300 students and employees. The costs for the Mechanical Engineering campus, including the Dynamics of Energy Conversion Research Building, amount to around 149 million euros. The project is jointly financed by the state and federal government. It is currently on schedule and within budget.

HISTORY OF THE MECHANICAL ENGINEERING CAMPUS

  • Already in the 70s of the last century there were efforts to establish a scientific axis, which was conceived as an urban structural concept of the TU Hannover and which is now completed with the construction of the Mechanical Engineering Campus.
  • In 2013, the architecture firm Auer + Weber from Munich won the international general planning competition for the new campus.
  • On 4th December 2015, the first sod was symbolically turned at the official start of the second construction phase in Garbsen.
  • On the 23rd May 2017, Leibniz University Hannover invited to the topping-out ceremony of the second construction phase in Garbsen.

Hannover Center for Production Technology 

The Hannover Center for Production Technology (PZH) on the opposite side of the street, in which seven institutes of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering are already successfully carrying out their work, will be conceptually integrated into the building project. It represents the first construction phase of the entire campus.
