Process Control and Automation

The group, led by Prof. Sirkka-Liisa Jämsä-Jounela, aim to serve all fields of process technology - chemical, metallurgical and forest products - in terms of process automation.

The Research Group of Process Control and Automation is led by prof Sirkka-Liisa Jämsä-Jounela. The laboratory gives courses in process modelling, simulation, control, optimisation and automation as well as in production control. The undergraduate students typically have a few years background of process engineering studies, after which a one-to-two-year portion of automation studies. Post-graduate students typically work in the field of process technology - either in the industry or in research institutes or universities - while studying.
