In his capacity as a Member of the Board of Directors of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, Professor Thomas Bergs leads the Process Technology Division and is the head of the Manufacturing Technology Institute (MTI) at the RWTH Aachen University.

He was born in Neuss on 21 December 1967. Having achieved university entrance qualification from the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Gymnasium in Neuss and completed his compulsory military service with the Light Mountain Infantry Battalion in Bischofswiesen, he embarked on a foundation course in mechanical engineering at the University of Duisburg GH.  

For the main part of his course, Thomas Bergs switched to the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technical University, Aachen where he continued his studies majoring in design engineering. He graduated in 1995 having written his diploma thesis at the Engineering Research Center for Net Shape Manufacturing in Columbus, Ohio. In 2001 he went on to earn a doctorate in engineering at the RWTH Aachen University for which he was awarded the Borchers Plaque. He also graduated as an Executive Master of Business Administration in 2011.

Thomas Bergs was a research associate in the Process Technology Section at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT in Aachen from 1995 to 2000. In the year 2000, he was appointed Manager of the Laser Engineering Group and of the Business Unit »Aachener Werkzeug- und Formenbau« (Aachen Tool and Die Making). Since 2001 he has also held the position of Managing Chief Engineer. Thomas Bergs has additionally been the Managing Director of Aixtooling GmbH in Aachen, whose core area of expertise is in tool making for the precision glass molding sector.

Thomas Bergs was appointed as Professor at the Chair of Manufacturing Technology at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of the RWTH Aachen University and as Director of the Process Technology Division at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT. As the successor to Professor Fritz Klocke, he is also a member of the Board of Directors of both production engineering institutes.
