RWTH Aachen - AVT-Systemverfahrenstechnik

The International Research Training Groups (IRTG) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) provide opportunities for joint doctoral training programs between German universities and universities abroad. The research and study programs are jointly developed and supervised. Under a recently granted IRTG the DFG promotes an interdisciplinary project between the at RWTH Aachen University (Group of Prof. Mitsos, AVT- Process Systems Engineering) and the University of Texas (Group of Prof. Baldea).
The chair of Process Systems Engineering (AVT.SVT) is part of Aachener Verfahrenstechnik, was founded in 1993 by Prof Wolfgang Marquardt and is directed since 2012 by Prof. Alexander Mitsos, PhD. Our research covers different topics of process systems engineering which link chemical engineering with computational engineering science.
It is focused on the development of basic principles of mathematical modeling, the combination of experiments and modeling, conceptual process design, process operations and control as well as the development of numerical algorithms and software-tools.
The methodological aspect is complemented by challenging applications in the process industries.
