Prof. Birgit Vogel-Heuser runs for a seat at IEEE RAS AdCom - Voting is open until 24 Nov. 2021


Our highly respected TUM colleague Prof. Birgit Vogel-Heuser is running for a seat in the IEEE RAS AdCom this year. IEEE RAS members can support her with a vote until 24 November 2021. Birgit Vogel-Heuser has been contributing to MIRMI from the very first minute and is now among the candidates from RAS Geographical Area 2 (IEEE Region 8) - Europe, Middle East & Africa.

In her position statement issued on the IEEE RAS Election website she writes:

“Automation in Germany is very broad reaching from product automation like cars, construction machines, and industrial coffee and washing machines to manufacturing machines and entire plants, with often a strong link to industry for requirements and evaluation. I would like to attract more people from this broader understanding of automation to RAS. Regarding my background from electrical, mechanical engineering and computer science, I hope to contribute with an interdisciplinary view. Due to the 9 years in industry and different advisory board positions in industrial companies, I know both industry and academia and hope to bridge the gap between both. As a female, I hope to encourage as a role model more females to a career in automation already starting at school and to encourage females to reach higher positions in academia or industry even if it is not easy to balance career and family issues.”
