The Institute for Process and Particle Engineering originally emerged from the “Lehrstuhl für die Grundlagen der Verfahrenstechnik” (Institute for Fundamentals in Chemical Engineering), which was founded in 1966 by Prof. Franz Moser. After several renamings and splittings, currently three institutes focusing on chemical engineering are affiliated to the Graz University of Technology: The Institute for Paper,- Pulp,- and Fibre Technology, the Institute for Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology, and the Institute for Process and Particle Engineering.
The Institute for Process and Particle Engineering consists of five independent research areas, each committed to high-level basic and applied research:
Pharmaceutical Engineering and Particle Technology
Pharmaceutical Materials Engineering and Design
Mechanical Process Engineering, Heterogeneous Reactions, Surface Phenomena
Our close cooperation with industry, as well as academic and non-academic research institutions offers young scientists a highly interdisciplinary research environment. Congresses and workshops, frequently organized by us, provide a unique platform to communicate key results to an international scientific community, and often lead to new cooperations with research institutions and industry.
