About RAP


The chair for control and automation of production processes works on current topics in automation and robotics. The focus in research and development lays on automatic welding and robot driven machining processes as well as their simulation. The integration of new sensor applications in processes for a better process control and quality surveillance is an important field of research for us. We look on tasks in mechanical as well as civil engineering.

Our goal is to follow ideas from basic research to their practical implementation with industrial partners. Students are of course integrated in the research with their theses. In our lectures we combine academic basics with practical applications to prepare students for future demands in the best way.

The head of the chair is PD Dr.-Ing. Jobst Bickendorf. It is part of the faculty of mechanical engineering at the TU Dortmund University.
