Germany – The best for outstanding scientific achievements comes away with top recognition from Germany-based Arburg, leading global manufacturer of plastic processing machines.

At the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Dr. Andreas Schmideder was celebrated for the best dissertation, while Dr Andreas Schmideder walked away with the best master thesis prize, both from the mechanical engineering faculty on Faculty of Engineering Day held in mid-July.

As a partner of TUM, Arburg awards outstanding achievers in both doctoral and master theses.

Professors in the fields of polymer technology, medical technology and related fields were asked to nominate suitable candidates for these prizes. And from this selection, a jury of four professors from the mechanical engineering faculty, TUM then chose their winners.

Presenting the awards were award coordinator Professor Birgit Vogel-Heuser of the Chair of Automation and Information Systems and Arburg Apprenticeship Manager Michael Vieth.

Schmideder's doctorate thesis, titled "Continuous process control in miniaturised stirred-tank reactors", is based on his research, in which he developed a new means of continuous process control in miniaturised single-use plastic bio-reactors. His work that is very relevant in increasing efficiency in microbial bio-process development, has been reported several times in international and prestigious scientific journals, thanks to its wide application scope. An example is that it enabled the direct up-scaling of a complex biotechnological production process from 0.01 to 1,000 litres for the very first time. The results of his research will form the basis of other doctoral projects at the Chair of Biochemical Engineering.

"Friction and wear on the cornea-contact lens-interface lubricated with biopolymers" was the title of Winkeljann's master thesis. This work is his study on friction and wear at the interface between the cornea and contact lenses lubricated with biopolymers. Winkeljann's selection was also unanimous, thanks to its high practical relevance. He also represented his results based on the current state of research more effectively than the other candidates, it was reported.
