International Max Planck Research School Magdeburg for Advanced Methods in Process and Systems Engineering - IMPRS ProEng
The International Max Planck Research School Magdeburg is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems and the Otto von Guericke University in Magdeburg. Its main goal is to provide excellent training and PhD projects with regard to the analysis, design and optimization in chemical and biochemical process engineering.
The focus is on the development and the application of mathematical modeling approaches and system theoretical methods used to identify system structures, investigate process behavior and design technical processes for specific tasks.
