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


Dear students,

please note that we will start with our courses in the second week of lectures, i.e. from 18.10.2021. We will release the access to our Moodle course room latest on Friday, 15.10.2021 with the announcement of the enrollment key via email in LSF.

The first meeting dates will be in attendance during the second week of lectures (18.10.21 - 22.10.21). You will receive further information via email in LSF.

Please also note that in the upcoming winter semester 2021/2022 we will offer our courses in the format "blended learning with regular attendance", i.e. we will offer each course partly in attendance and also make available to you videos with sound as mp4 files and lecture and exercise materials as pdf files in our Moodle course room.

In addition, we would like to hold online seminars with them to deepen the lecture content and, if required, we would also like to offer consultation hours via digital meeting or in presence. For each course, a forum is set up in our Moodle course room where you can ask questions and discuss topics.

We would like to remind you to register for the courses in the winter semester 2021/2022 in the LSF information system of the University of Duisburg-Essen. We will then - as already mentioned above - send you the registration key for our Moodle course room via LSF by 15.10.2021 at the latest!

We offer the following courses in the winter semester 2021/2022 in our Moodle course room starting 18.10.2021:

  • Mechanische Verfahrenstechnik
  • Membrane Technology for Water Treament
  • Planung wassertechnischer Anlagen
  • Quality Management in Water Supply
  • Wassergewinnung
  • Waste Water Treatment
  • Water-Natural Science Fundamentals
  • Water Treatment 2

In the navigation bar under "Teaching - Lectures Winter Semester 2021/22" you will find timetables for our lectures with the current lecture times for the first face-to-face lecture.

We would like to point out that the Moodle course room from last summer semester is still available, so that you can prepare for the corresponding exams in the winter semester, if necessary.

‚ÄčGruppenfoto 2019

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.
