Welcome to the Institute for Information Management in Engineering
The innovative art of thinking for efficient solutions in Engineering
The effective and efficient management of information throughout engineering processes is of essential importance for the economical sucess. The Institute for Information Management in Engineering supports enterprises by providing innovative and practical IT-solutions and methodologies. Thus ensuring successful and sustainable competitive advantage in research and industry.
Our research fields Process Management (PM), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Smart Immersive Environments (SIE) and Digital Twin (DT) complement one another towards a holistic approach for intergrating process- and system information in an unified product knowledge model.
The novel Center for Artificial Intelligence Talents (CAIT) offers a platform for interdisciplinary research at KIT and a framework for technology transfer into industry. Our field of expertise is enhanced by our research group for Process and Datamanagement in Engineering (PDE) at the Research Center for Information Technologies (FZI).
CAD training with tradition
For more than 15 years, CAD courses have been offered at the IMI (until 2003 RPK) as part of the engineering training at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Between the lecture-times, two of the latest CAD systems are currently being offered with CATIA and Siemens NX courses, which are becoming increasingly popular. In addition, SolidWorks is used in several lectures.
In two pool rooms with state-of-the-art workstations, the students have the opportunity to gain knowledge about these programs, which they can access in their later professional life.
Together with the KolabBW consortium, IMI presented its current results in the area of the "InnovationCampus Mobility of the Future (ICM)" at the "Future Mobility Open Labs" at KIT on Wednesday, October 12, 2022.
