Young accademics have a new place to study process and plant safety – the CSE Center of Safety Excellence in Pfinztal near Karlsruhe. In September 2015 the first part of the Center was furnished. In a brand new building beside the Fraunhofer Institute of Chemical Technology the CSE office opened. At the beginning of January 2016 a second part has been added.
On the first day the CSE started with 8 academics. Till April 2016 this number was doubled. “We have room for up to 40 young professional in Pfinztal and we expect to grow fast” sayed Professor Schmidt, the director of the CSE-Institute. Typically, students from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and the University of Kaiserslautern studying Chemical Engineering, Process Operation, Mechanical Engineering or Chemistry do apply for a PhD, Master or Bachelor degree at CSE. During the next month further students from the University of Applied Science in Karlsruhe will be attracted and foreign students, e.g. from University of Magdeburg, have applied for a work.
