Academic Career and Research Areas

Prof. Lohmann (b. 1960) researches linear and nonlinear control theory, model order reduction and automatic control applications in mechatronics, automotive technology and plant automation.

After studying electrical engineering at the University of Karlsruhe, Prof. Lohmann completed his doctorate there in 1991. He then went to work at Siemens Electrocom in Konstanz, where he was involved in the development of mail sorting machines. He also lectured during that time and completed his lecturer qualification in 1994 in system dynamics and control engineering at Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg. His last role at Siemens was Head of Mechanical Development. In 1997, he joined the University of Bremen as professor of control engineering and Head of the Institute of Automation. Since 2004, Prof. Lohmann has been full professor at the Chair of Automatic Control at TUM. In addition to 19 patents in the areas of mechatronics and system control, he has authored or co-authored over 200 publications and seven books.
