ICE2023: Poster Presentation Award

Wiebke Schrader recieved the 2nd best poster presentation award during the International Conference on Electrolysis (ICE2023) in Sun City, South Afrika. Wiebke presented her recent work on "Multi-objective adjoint optimization tool for electro-chemical systems applied to membrane-less electrolyzer", which has been carried out in collaboration with IAM-ET within the BMBF-funded "ETOS" cluster.

Research Fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

We welcome Dr. Patricia Sújar-Garrido to KIT. She will conduct research at the Institute of Fluid Mechanics (ISTM) for a total of 18 months until the end of 2025 as part of a Humboldt Research Fellowship for experienced researchers. Patricia Sújar-Garrido, who holds an affiliation at KTH Stockholm, focuses on experimental fluid mechanics.

Courses at ISTM

Fluid Mechanics: exam on 15.03.2024, 14:00 - 17:00

Mathematical Methods in Fluid Mechanics: exam on 26.03.2024, 13:00 - 16:00


Further detailed information of the upcoming exams can be found in their respective Ilias courses.
