IVW is closely linked to the TU Kaiserslautern through a cooperation agreement. The institute's scientists contribute to the teaching with lectures, exercises and laboratories.
Students of the university have the opportunity to carry out
studies, diploma, bachelor and master theses as well as projects at IVW.
The institute also cooperates closely with the departments and institutes of the university in various ways, e.g. in the form of jointly funded research projects, but also for intrinsic studies (up stream research).
