Engineers for movement.
Drive engineering is concerned with movement by means of power transmission from machines, the supply of energy to and control of the drive elements – independently of the drive train. Drive trains may include gearboxes in the function of torque converters, as well as clutches. Hence, drive engineering is an important area of mechanical engineering.
The drive engineering distinguishes between the following different types of drives: fluid drives, such as pneumatic drives, hydraulic drives, jet engine drives and turbine drives, electromechanical drives, manual drives, electric drives and mechanical drives.
With its engineers for drive engineering from actuators, automotive engineering, precision engineering, aeronautical engineering and space technology, medical technology, metallurgy and defense systems, ROSA has an interesting pool of knowledge sources for such projects.

Engineers for the production of piece goods.
Manufacturing technology is a field of production engineering and is concerned with the economical production of piece goods, geometrically defined solid bodies, from given starting materials under specific tolerances and their assembly to form assemblies, semi-finished or finished products.
Manufacturing engineering is differentiated by the following main groups:
- casting, creation of a solid body from shapeless material
- forming, production by pure sculptural changes to the shape of the body
- separating, change of the solid body form by breaking the cohesion
- joining, bringing separate workpieces into a permanent connection
- coating, applying a firmly adhering layer on a workpiece
- changing the material property by rearranging, separating or introducing material particles.
Since its founding, ROSA has worked in process-related plant engineering and construction. During the course of its further development, ROSA was able gain access to experts in process engineering and related fields such as manufacturing engineering.

Engineers for flow processes.
Fluid mechanics or alternatively flow mechanics deals with flow processes and the design of bodies in flows and bodies through which a fluid passes.
It is divided into fluid statics, with the consideration of static fluids, and aerostatics, with the consideration of static atmospheres, similarity theory, stream tube theory, potential flows, gas dynamics, fluid dynamics, linear stability theory, flow measurement technology, and computational fluid measurement technology.
ROSA, with its background of longstanding activities in process-related plant engineering and construction, has worked for a long time with engineers in the field of fluid mechanics. The qualifications of the available engineers have also expanded over the years to other applications.

Engineers for design.
Design theory is concerned with the applied fundamentals of design, making use of thermodynamics, engineering mechanics and materials science. Today, as part of general mechanical engineering, design comprises the following examples of course content: descriptive geometry and technical visualization, machine elements, design theory, design methodology, gear technology, drive technology and mechanisms, CAD with SolidEdge, SolidWorks, CATIA, Creo, NX and Inventor.

I&C engineers and PLC specialists.
I&C technology, or also E/I&C (electrical measurement, instrumentation and control), considers measurement technology, control technology and feedback control technology as a whole. Measurement technology deals with the determination of quantitative variables with the required accuracy and reproducibility. It is used to assess the characteristics, function, quality and reliability of products and thus be able to also optimize them. Control engineering is concerned with obtaining one or more quantitative variables in a process. The programmable logic controller (PLC) is today’s way of applying control engineering. It is used as a regulator, because the microprocessor can also perform arithmetic control functions. Feedback control systems are concerned with process stabilization. They are necessary in cases of feedback from the affected variables.
In the past, ROSA recognized the importance of I&C and the PLCs that developed from it, which are today’s most widely used control devices. As a result, ROSA successively expanded this business segment. This allows us to draw on a broad range of relevant specialists today.

Engineers in engineering mechanics.
Engineering mechanics is concerned with determination of the stress and deformation of elastic bodies as well as the movement of bodies. It provides calculation methods for materials science, mechanical engineering and structural statics, for example. It includes dynamics with statics and kinetics, kinematics, continuum mechanics with fluid mechanics and the strength of materials, for example, as well as rotor dynamics and machine dynamics.
ROSA – Engineers with dynamics
Engineers in the field of thermodynamics.
Technical thermodynamics deals with energy, its manifestations and applicability for the performance of work. It also includes the transfer of heat, energy transport and storage, and refrigeration.
In addition to heat transfer or alternatively refrigeration, and power engineering, vehicle air conditioning has developed into its own field of study.

Engineers of materials science and materials technology.
Materials science and alternatively materials technology deal with the production of materials and the description of their structure and properties. On the other hand, materials technology deals with the research and development of materials for the production of technically-relevant components and their behavior in use.
In the manufacturing and processing industry, relevant skills in the areas of research and development, design and calculation, simulation and modelling, manufacturing and processing, and quality assurance are required.
ROSA, with its customers in the automotive industry, chemical industry, power engineering, electrical industry, mechanical engineering, medical technology and microelectronics, offers engineers with a degree or specialization in materials science and materials technology an interesting range of possible placements.
