The Fraunhofer Personnel Certification Authority at Fraunhofer FIT certifies qualifications in the field of fiber composite materials.
The certificate "Composite Engineer" certifies the ability of the graduates to supervise the whole life cycle of a fiber reinforced plastic product. This covers product development, manufacture, and repair and involves interdisciplinary thinking, evaluation, decision-making, and actions relating to effective usage of FRP technology.
Target groups are engineers and scientists in all disciplines and sectors of industry, and also qualified technical employees who either currently work with fiber composite materials or wish to do so in the future.
The Composite Engineer course is modular. The Introductory Module and four Basic Modules are compulsory. The participants then take four Specific Modules of their own choice. Each of the Specific Modules ends with a written examination. A certificate of attendance at the Basic Modules and successfully passed examinations for the Specific Modules are prerequisites for taking the final oral examination.
Passing the final oral examination results in the award of a certificate as "Composite Engineer".
