Sebastian Repetzki receives MCI professorship

The Entrepreneurial School® honors Dr. Sebastian Repetzki with the title of Professor

In appreciation of his achievements in research, teaching and the development of the university sector, as well as his exemplary translation of research results into teaching, Management Center Innsbruck (MCI) has recently conferred the title of Professor to Dr. Sebastian Repetzki.

After completing his diploma studies summa cum laude, and his doctorate at the renowned Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering at RWTH Aachen University, Repetzki worked as a research assistant at the Chair of Machine Tools and Production Engineering in Aachen. He did research in production engineering and structural analysis at the Université Joseph Fourier , Grenoble and later held a position of responsibility in a German engineering company in France, in which he remained for 12 years. For eight years now, Sebastian Repetzki has been teaching at MCI and managing the Mechanical Engineering division of the Department of Mechatronics. His primary focus is on professional quality assurance and the optimization of teaching machine and production engineering at a Bachelor’s and Master’s level. In addition, Sebastian Repetzki has established a reputation as an inventor: he is particularly well-known for his load-rotating spinner, an innovative device for rotating crane loads, thus aiding the process of loading suspended objects.

Ever since he started his academic career, Sebastian Repetzki has been interested in the virtual machine tool. In his highly interesting inaugural address he demonstrated how to teach a robot – albeit “blind, deaf, and raw” – spatial visualization and a sense of touch, enabling it to manage precise and difficult tasks of industrial production.

MCI Rector Andreas Altmann and Head of the Academic Council and Professor Franz Pegger, handed over the certificate of appointment to Repetzki in the presence of his family, friends, colleagues, and students.
