Symposium "Lightweight Design in Product Development"


ETH Zurich
Building LEE
Leonhardstrasse 21
8092 Zurich

Today more than ever, economic growth, prosperity and mobility need to be balanced with the limited availability of natural resources and energy reserves. In this context, lightweight systems play a central role by the realization of sustainable products and components, minimizing material and energy consumption over the entire design life. The design space available to engineers is continuously expanded by novel material systems and fabrication technologies entering the market. At the same time, novel multi-disciplinary design tools, methods and approaches, new data and information technologies are revolutionizing products and the way they are designed and fabricated.

The "Lightweight Design in Product Development" symposium is structured in five blocks, each one of them addressing one of the following topics:

  • Multi-functional lightweight systems
  • Modular lightweight design
  • Engineering of composites
  • Additive manufacturing for lightweight design
  • Advanced materials and processes


The language of the symposium is English.
