Friends & Supporters


The circle of friends and supporters of the Chair of Information and Automation Systems for Process and Material Technology aims at promoting the technical-scientific dialogue between RWTH Aachen University and the industry. The circle consists of major international users and manufacturers of process control and measurement technology systems.

The cooperation is reflected in the fact that a large part of the research work is carried out together with the industrial partners. This cooperation ensures that the research is oriented towards the current questions of the time and is also implemented in practice. In addition to that, the friends and supporters enables young scientists to participate in national and international congresses as well as in committees and associations. This is an important building block for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.

Furthermore, this cooperation makes a constantly practice-related teaching possible. This also applies to the process control equipment of the chair. Every year, around 150 students receive practical training in process control technology on the process plants and process control systems of the chair.

The circle of friends and supporters regularly sends invitations to seminars and colloquia in order to discuss current issues of information and automation technology on both, the operator and manufacturer side. If your company is also interested in a scientific exchange in the field of process control engineering, please contact us and become a member of the circle!
