Our novel non-profit Engineering Research Center LSTME Busan Branch

LSTME Busan Branch has recently started with its research and development activities in Busan (South Korea). It represents a branch of the non-profit promoting association LSTME (German abbreviation of the Institute of Fluid Mechanics Erlangen). In its establishment procedure it has been awarded Affiliate Institute of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (Germany) and recognized as Foreign Research Center by Busan Metropolitan City. Public Korean institutions subsidy LSTME Busan Branch.


Our mission

To make sophisticated engineering methods available for satisfying the needs of human individuals in different societies.


Our vision

Our vision aims to contribute to a livable existence by satisfying human individual needs, basically (i) adequate food and nutrition, (ii) medical and pharmaceutical products, (iii) an uncontaminated, eco-friendly environment and (iv) suitable energy sources. In all these fields of activities, at least one material component capable of flowing is available. Thus, fluid mechanics play an essential role in improving existent corresponding processes and products as well as in creating novel one as cross-sectional discipline per se. When contributing to satisfying the needs of complete societies, managing bulk processes in automatized, on-line, self-learning up-to-date procedure represents is a must.
