Automation

Automation plays an important role not only in industry, but also in our everyday lives, from medical technology to building management. Our electrical engineering faculty is particularly competent in automation. Close cooperation with industry in the Rhein-Main-Area characterise these focal points. The main focusses deal with current issues in control engineering, robotics, factory automation and the Industrial Internet of Things. Identification of dynamic systems, adaptive controls, process visualisation and bus and control technology as well as sensor and actuator technology are analysed and deepened in theory and practice.
