Ph.D. Program in Process-, Energy- and Automation Engineering
This Ph.D. is related to the areas of process technology, environmental technology, and engineering cybernetics, with relevant applications within the field of the technical-industrial process and energy systems.
About the degree
Important process and energy engineering fields of study are thermodynamics, process equipment, transport processes, flow, powder technology, catalysis, purification of gas and liquid flows, combustion, energy from renewable resources, process integration, gas safety and general technical safety as well as energy and material recovery.
Within engineering cybernetics, the central areas of study are mechanistic modeling and system identification, simulation, sensors and measurement technology, control engineering, and process monitoring.
At TUC, this degree is anchored in the three Master's programs in Technology: Process Technology, Industrial IT and Automation and Energy and Environmental Technology.
The doctoral program qualifies students for research activity at a high academic level and for other work that requires a high level of scientific insight.
