Prof. Dr.-Ing. Birgit Vogel-Heuser

Academic Career and Research Areas

The research interests of Prof. Vogel-Heuser (*1961) are in the area of systems and software engineering as well as in the modeling of distributed and reliable embedded systems. Especially, her research foci are put on the challenges that result from the increasing demand to produce customer-specific products in the plant manufacturing domain. Engineering and education on hybrid process and heterogeneous distributed and intelligent systems using a human centered approach are also included in her research area.

Prof. Vogel-Heuser received her Dipl. Ing. degree in electrical engineering in 1987 and her Dr.-Ing. degree in mechanical engineering in 1990 from the RWTH Aachen, Germany. She acquired industrial experience over ten years, including a position as technical director for the Siempelkamp Group. After various professorship positions in Hagen, Wuppertal, and Kassel, she was appointed to the Chair of Automation and Information Systems at TUM in 2009. Prof. Vogel-Heuser is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the National Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech). She is also a member of various advisory boards, including the advisory board of the VDI/VDE-GMA and the board of trustees of the German Museum. Prof. Vogel-Heuser is editor of the handbook Industrie 4.0 and the author of more than 500 scientific publications.
