Texas-Wisconsin-California Control Consortium

The Texas-Wisconsin-California Control Consortium (TWCCC) carries out joint industrial-academic research in the areas of chemical process modeling, monitoring, control and optimization.

It’s the largest program of its type in the U.S. with 12 companies, several agencies, 20 full-time graduate students and four postdoctoral researchers participating in the program, supervised by world renowned Professors.

Applications have included distillation (batch and continuous), crystallization, packed bed catalytic reactors, polymerization, pressure swing adsorption, polymer processing, biosystems, and microelectronics processing. A number of projects are facilitated by internships, where the student spends several months or more at a manufacturing or R&D site.  TWCCC graduates are highly sought after by industry.
