The Research Department of Life Science Engineering (LSE) combines engineering, natural and life science expertise. We are dealing with questions regarding value-added systems in the agricultural and food sector as well as in the forestry and timber industry.

The research is focused on (reverse) engineering approaches in food production, biotechnological solutions for the bio-economy, additive and biomaterial-based manufacturing strategies (TUM.Additive), precision agriculture, development of intelligent machines for agriculture and digitization of value chains (Industry 4.0).
