about the institute

Today our institute is located in the center of the Technology Park in Warnemünde. With its three chairs for Laboratory Automation, Process Measurement and Control & Simulation, the IAT is devoted to interdisciplinary research topics from the fields of Life Sciences and Maritime Technologies.

The employees of the Institute of Automation work successfully on a number of projects financed by research grants. Here the close connection of the Institute to SME and major industry plays an important role.

In addition to the scientific and technical employees financed by a state budget, a number of employees financed by research grants are also employed at the Institute.

Several major projects with national and international partners have developed from the application-oriented research results at the Institute. This trend was taken into account with the establishment of the application-oriented professorship for Laboratory Automation. more...
