The Partnership for Advanced Process Modelling

Bringing together academia, PSE and industry

The Partnership for APM is a global initiative to accelerate the use of advanced process modelling at leading engineering universities. As more process-centric companies look for ways to create and capture sustainable value, the power of advanced process modelling needs to become more integral to those efforts. The goal of the Partnership is for engineering students to understand how to apply the unique opportunities available with advanced process modelling tools, so that they too can become part of a powerful ecosystem that is making a big difference in innovation, safety and effectiveness. Member universities will drive adoption of the technology among their chemical engineering students at the graduate and undergraduate level, the teaching and research staff, and selected industrial partners. PSE will contribute gPROMS® platform software, model libraries and training services.

PSE has formed partnerships with the following universities:

  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • University of Texas at Austin
  • University of Minnesota
  • Purdue University
  • Rutgers University
  • Planta Piloto de Ingenieria Quimica
  • James Cook University
  • University College  Dublin
  • Imperial College
  • University of Dortmund
  • Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne
  • Czech Technical University Prague
  • University College London
  • University of Edinburgh
  • Murdoch University
  • University Polytehnica of Bucharest

The Partnership improves collaboration with excellent universities in different geographic areas and allows PSE to give training courses and hands-on workshops on partner campuses as part of our Local Area Training (LAT) program. Partner universities get access to our training material, possible internships and research projects as well as reduced prices for software. The Partnership also stimulates interaction between students and industrial clients.

We welcome excellent universities in other geographic areas to contact PSE for potential collaboration.
