KNAUER has donated a high-quality analyser to the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) for use in education and training in the chemical engineering department. The company provided a Smartline HPLC system that the company reports will allow process engineers studying at TUHH to learn how to use this technology during their studies, before they enter the professional marketplace.

“We want to introduce students to interdisciplinary research early on, as is typical of the TUHH. The instrumentation donated by KNAUER enables our future engineers to become familiar with modern analysis methods at the interface of chemistry and chemical engineering”, said Professor Andreas Liese at the donation ceremony in Hamburg.

“The use of modern analytical instruments is very important for future engineers. We are pleased to support a higher standard of education at the TUHH with our donation”, said the company’s managing director, Dr Alexander Bünz, himself a former engineering student at TUHH in the 80s and one of the first to receive a doctorate from the university in 1995.
