PROF. DR. MOLA, AUTHOR AND DEVELOPER OF TABTRAINER®
Professor Mola has been teaching at the Ruhr West University of Applied Sciences (HRW) since 2010. In addition to his particularly industry-related teaching, his career is also remarkable and functions as a role model for many students. As a child of emigrants, he came to Germany in 1968 as part of the recruitment agreement between the Federal Republic of Germany and Turkey. After graduating from main school, he completed an IHK-apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic. In parallel to his work as an industrial mechanic in a forging company, he made his technical baccalaureate graduated from the University of Applied Sciences in Iserlohn with a degree in production engineering and then went on to study at the Ruhr University of Bochum with a degree in materials engineering. In addition to his work as a scientific employee at the RUB and as a lecturer at the international education centre Bochum e.V. to support apprentices in need of tutoring in metalworking, Professor Mola fulfilled his doctorate in mechanical engineering. His dissertation received the highest possible academic distinction “summa cum laude. “After completing his doctorate, Professor Mola moved to ThyssenKrupp, where he worked in a variety of positions and headed the Central Quality Management of the strategic business unit Stainless/Nirosta until 2010. In 2005, professor Mola was honoured for his research in the field of lean materials with the prestigious ThyysenKrupp Materials Innovation Award. In 2011, his career pathway was published by Florian Langenscheidt in the book “In best Company – 100 Turkish success stories from Business and Science “.
In 2023 he was awarded with the prestigious title „Germany’s Professor of the Year“. The award has been organized as an annual, nationwide competition since 2006 and is under the sponsorship of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
The technical-didactic TABTRAINER® learning content has been developed by Prof. Dr. Mola and is based on his AQAS and ISO 13053 accredited Six Sigma university teaching modules in the Mechanical Engineering and Technical Production Management courses at the University of Applied Sciences HRW, Germany.
Prof. Mola’s Six Sigma university modules Six Sigma Green Belt and Six Sigma Black Belt are the only academic institutions in Germany to meet the necessary requirements for industry-related Six Sigma expert certification in accordance with ISO 13053. His Six Sigma university course content is accredited and certified by both AQAS® (Agency for Quality Assurance for the Accreditation of Study Programs) and the German Technical Inspection Organization TÜV®.
All online training courses were developed by Prof. Mola and are based on his AQAS and ISO 13053 accredited Six Sigma university modules in mechanical engineering and technical production management. In addition, a high-quality Six Sigma expert certification was developed together with TÜV Nord experts on the basis of ISO 13053. The background to this development is the requirement of the manufacturing and processing industry for proven Six Sigma expertise.
In 2005, professor Mola was honoured for his research in the field of lean materials with the prestigious ThyysenKrupp Materials Innovation Award.
