Process automation is nowadays recognized as an interdisciplinary education activity. In the future, students will have to be broadly educated in order to cope with cross-disciplinary applications and rapidly changing technology. In this paper the new tools available for process automation education are presented and discussed. First, a web-based study support environment is described and evaluation of the application results reported. Second, a state-of–the-art flotation cell pilot plant and a remote support system for a pressure filter for experimental training are presented. Finally, KnowPap, a new generation learning environment for paper making and automation, is briefly introduced.
