Charlotte Ebeling M. Sc.


Charlotte Ebeling studied Mechanical and Process Engineering at Technische Universität Darmstadt until march 2018 and achieved a Master of Science degree. During her undergraduate studies she sucessfully participated in the double degree coorperative program with the Virginia Tech Polytechnic and State University, USA during which she earned a Bachelor of Science degree from both universities. Her master's thesis was adressing the development, empirical conduction and analysis of a driving simulator study within the field of connected vehicles.

In July 2018 Charlotte Ebeling joined the Department of Computer Integrated Design (DiK) at Technische Universität Darmstadt as a research assistant and doctoral candidate. Her activities mainly focus on the research, development and implementation of methods adressing digitalisation, IoT and Industrie 4.0 for small and medium sized enterprises.

Since fall semester 2018/19 Ms. Ebeling supervises the course “Virtual Product Development A” in the mechanical engineering master's program. This lecture deals with the basics of the modern product data technology and gives a profound overview of the most important CAx process chains.

Topics: Virtual Product Development, Geometric modelling, Feature Modellierung, Parametrics, CAx process chains: DMU/MKS/FEM/CFD/PPS/VR/AR/TPD/RPD

Mittelstand 4.0 – Kompetenzzentrum Darmstadt

Since July 2018 Ms. Ebeling is working within the MiT4.0 – Competence Center Darmstadt for Small and Medium sized Enterprises. MiT4.0 with its learning factories at the TU Darmstadt is providing a central platform for knowledge transfer and training modules for small and medium sized, mainly technology based, enterprises. During monthly offered workshops, company representatives are informed about the potentials and challenges for the digitalization of their business processes. In addition, individual consulting and implementation projects are offered for selected technology focused companies and numerous Industrie 4.0 research projects.

Under the umbrella of the MiT4.0, small and medium sized enterprises are offered the following support:

• Initial information about digital transformation, e.g. by demonstrators or by showing existing solutions

• Training courses in the five fields of action: “Efficient value-added process”, “Work & Labor 4.0”, “New business models”, “Energy management”, and “IT security”.

• IHK certificate course “Train the Trainer 4.0” for business consultants, trainers in commerce chambers and associations

• E-learning programs, workgroups, and conferences

Through diverse events and further training formats, more than 3.000 people ranging from company representatives or consultants to labor union members are reached during the project term.
