Institute of Thermodynamics and Thermal Process Engineering ITT

The ITT conducts research and education in the field of Thermodynamics and Thermal Process Engineering.

Mission statement

We provide students with a fundamental thermodynamic education that enables solving challenging engineering problems of high practical and social relevance.

Our scientific work targets at further developing methods and tools for more efficient thermal separation processes. Our theoretical research in the field of Molecular Thermodynamics and the experimental research using spectroscopic methods are used by us and by others for describing and optimizing material properties as well as thermal separation processes on the equipment scale. Based on our scientific profile and expertise, we are partner for research cooperation with industry.
