Professor Weber
The award was presented for outstanding contributions to fluid technology and mechatronics.

Pro­fes­sor Jür­gen Weber, Pro­fes­sor of Fluid-Mecha­tro­nic Sys­tems Engi­nee­ring at TU Dres­den and Head of the GWT Inno­va­tion Cen­ter Fluid-Mecha­tro­nic Sys­tems Engi­nee­ring, was awarded the Joseph Bra­mah Medal 2022 for out­stan­ding con­tri­bu­ti­ons to fluid tech­no­logy and mechatronics.

Since 1968, the IMe­chE’s Mecha­tro­nics, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence and Con­trol Engi­nee­ring Sec­tion has awarded this prize annu­ally for out­stan­ding achie­ve­ments in the field of hydraulics.

As head of the GWT Inno­va­tion Cen­ter Fluid-Mecha­tro­nic Sys­tems Tech­no­logy, Pro­fes­sor Weber coope­ra­tes clo­sely with com­pa­nies, manu­fac­tu­r­ers and users of fluid tech­no­logy com­pon­ents. His insti­tute offers stu­dents a sound edu­ca­tion in fun­da­men­tals and prac­tice and is one of the lar­gest trai­ners of mas­ter’s and doc­to­ral stu­dents in fluid tech­no­logy in Europe. With over 250 publi­ca­ti­ons in the last 10 years, Prof. Weber has made a decisive con­tri­bu­tion to rese­arch in this field.

The GWT con­gra­tu­la­tes Pro­fes­sor Weber on this great success.
