Technische Universität Dresden

Dresden, Germany
Dresden is a leading region of semiconductor engineering and manufacturing in Europe (Globalfoundries, Infineon, X-FAB, ZMD) with large second and third-level delivery industry and a strongly evolving software industry (Deutsche Telekom, SAP-SI). Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) is one of the oldest and largest technical universities in Germany (35.000 students). In 2012 TUD has been evaluated as one of the 11 "Universities of Excellence" in Germany. TUD is a major gateway to new EU members with strategic cooperations to their Universities (e.g. Poznan, Wroclaw, Prague, Liberec, Budapest, Szeged). By high quality research, TUD earns about 150 Mio. € revenues p. a. in acquired project funding.
The faculty of computer science has 6 Institutes with 26 Chairs and total ≈ 2000 students. It will be represented in the project by the Chair for Technical Information Systems of the Institute of Applied Computed Science (IAI). This institute has strong experiences in real-world integration of automation systems into enterprise networks, systems modeling, dynamic modeling, simulation and data analytics. It works in the areas of manufacturing and control, diagnosis, real time analytics (process modelling, predictive maintenance), remote maintenance, automatic system design, and wireless and wired sensor-actuator-networks in the domains of semiconductor industry and industrial automation.
