Welcome to the website of the Chair for Mechanical Process Engineering / Water Technology

Journal "Membranes"
Special Issue "Enhancing the Efficiency of Membrane Processes for Water Treatment"

Guest editors:
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Panglisch
Dr. Ibrahim M.A. Elsherbiny

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15.04.2020

The chair is part of the IEUV Institute for Energy and Environmental Process Engineering.

Our themes of interest in research and teaching are linked to the global water crisis and its resulting challenges. The key competences in research are membrane filtration and adsorption. We employ our competences to investigate 3 research fields: Exploitation of contaminated water resources, process optimization/simulation and circular economy.

The ongoing technological development calls for skilled engineers capable to operate in a responsible way within the field of water economy which becomes more complex every day. For this reason, we created in 2008 the international ISE master study program “Management and Technology of Water and Waste Water MTW³ “. Since then we supervised students from 28 countries and prepared them to their tasks as water specialists. In 2015 the student group AquaSmarTech was founded which helps to connect students and answers to numerous questions within the study program and also abroad.

We cooperate closely with the IWW Water Centre and the ZWU Centre for Water and Environmental Research. Furthermore, a wide network of industrial partners enables students to experience practical application of their knowledge during a practical work, bachelor or master thesis.
