Chemical and process engineering deals with the application of basic science to physical and/or chemical conversions. The economic aspects and feasibility for industrial applications are of fundamental interest.

The core competence of our research group lies in the following areas: 

  • Multiphase processes
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Technical processes

Further information about our research projects can be found here: Research
The Chair participates in the following research associations:

Update October 2021:
The decision not to record failed exams during the pandemic has also been extended to the 2021/22 winter semester and examination period.

The state of Berlin and the Academic Senate of TU Berlin have adopted regulations for examinations for which a fail is not counted as an attempt (Freiversuch) for summer semester 2020 as well as the following winter semester. These regulations become effective with their publication in the law and ordinance gazette (Gestz- und Verordnungsblatt) of the state of Berlin. You will be informed of this shortly thereafter via this website.

The Examination Office is currently preparing to implement these regulations. Students will not be required to apply to have their grades discounted.

Priority is given to student accounts where a grade of 5.0 was awarded for the third attempt in summer semester 2020, meaning that the student is faced with exmatriculation. All known cases as of today (22.9.2020) have already been processed and the those affected informed. Further cases will be automatically processed as soon as examiners submit their grades to the Examination Office.

Thereafter, first and second unsuccessful attempts for summer semester 2020 will also be processed (automatically and without request), meaning that these failed examinations will also not be counted as attempts.  It still needs to be determined if the regulations will also apply to special cases, such as two failed attempts for an examination in summer semester 2020, failed final theses, or where a grade of 5.0 has been awarded as a result of cheating.

The deadline for taking an exam due to failed first or second repeat examinations in summer semester 2020 has been extended until 30.9.2021. There are currently no active deadlines for examinations failed at the first attempt.

Please be aware that this process requires time-consuming manual booking, which we first need to organize. It will therefore not be possible to implement everything in the near future. We will keep you updated here concerning developments, including how and whether the regulations regarding failed attempts apply to the special cases referred to above for ongoing examinations. We recommend you to visit our website regularly to find out about updates as well as check your QISPOS account or your SAP account (students in Physics and Historical Urban Studies programs).

We kindly request you not to make inquiries. Thank you!
