Since the foundation of the Chair of Machine Elements, there has been intensive research in many areas of engineering sciences. Starting in the early years, there have not only been detailed studies on individual machine elements but also on complex machines, which today would be classified as systems. For instance, the first working steam locomotive in Germany, “Saxonia”, was designed and built by Johann Andreas Schubert, the first professor of mechanical engineering in Dresden.
