The Institute for System Dynamics (ISYS), led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. O. Sawodny since 2005 has emerged from the Institute for System Dynamics and Control (ISR).

Institute for System Dynamics (ISYS)

The research concept of the ISYS aims for the practical implementation of theoretical results - mostly in cooperation with academic and industrial partners (see here). The scopes of application are related to process technology and biology as well as mechatronics, traffic and medical engineering. The courses offered by the ISYS are primarily made for graduate programs which are part of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. Additionally, the ISYS was principally in charge of the establishment of the inter-university degree program Medical Engineering in collaboration with the University of Tübingen in 2010. In 2009, Dr.-Ing. C. Tarin took over the professorship for "process control engineering” created by the BMBF in the context of the Women Professors Program at the ISYS.

Until the fire on 15 June 2014, the ISYS was located in Pfaffenwaldring 9 on the campus in Vaihingen. After nearly all office and laboratory facilities of the institute were destroyed, the ISYS moved to the Waldburgstraße 17 + 19 near the tram station Vaihingen.
