History

In the late sixties of the last century the Graz University of Technology, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, established the Institute of Basics in Chemical Engineering under the lead of F. Moser. In 1977 the Institute of Pulp and Paper Technology under the lead of H. Stark was founded.

In the late eighties the Institute of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology under the lead of R. Marr and several years later the Institute of Mechanical Engineering under the lead of G. Staudinger emerged from the Institute of Basics in Chemical Engineering as a consequence of general prosperity in Chemical Engineering.

In 2004 the Department of Chemical Engineering was integrated in the Faculty of Technical Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. Since then the complete scope of supply in process development and design according to the header of our faculty, “From Molecules to Processes”, can be offered in scientific education, research as well as industrial services.

In 2008 the Institute of Mechanical Engineering merged with a research group for Sustainable Process Design and the new field of research activities in Pharmaceutical Engineering to incorporate these activities in the Institute for Process and Particle Technology.

In 2008 the fuel cells research group of Prof. Hacker was merged with the Institute of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology.

In 2011 the Institute of Basics in Chemical Engineering was incorporated into the Institute of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology.        

It has been a well practiced commitment of our Institute ever since to supply students with skills in Basics of Chemical Engineering as well as Practical Classes with consideration of the steadily increasing role of simulation tools in process design as well as research.
