The Chair of Process Control Engineering covers the field of process automation in its research work and also in teaching. Within the area of teaching, our chair offers general introductory courses in dynamics and measurement technology. Additionally, our chair also offers more specialized courses in the fields of automation technology, modelling and optimization.
A theoretical research focus of our chair is the description of control-related concepts with the help of meta-models and the management of these meta-models with formal methods. With regard to applications, our focus lies on the development of innovative information concepts for the continuous support of engineering processes, the optimization of process control and the management of plants during the lifecycle of a production facility. Our chair works in close cooperation with leading manufacturers and users in the process industry and supports the national and international standardization committees in all areas of automation technology through its active participation.
