Unity Workshop – Register now!

Interdisciplinary Unity Workshop for students of TU Darmstadt and TU Graz from 22 to 25 November 2022

2022/09/27 by

We teach you how to create an interactive VR game from a digital building model (BIM)! During a workshop week, you will get to know the game engine Unity and develop an immersive multiplayer application together with students from TU Graz/Austria.


For two years now, the Institute of Numerical Methods and Informatics in Civil Engineering (IIB) at TU Darmstadt and the Institute of Urbanism at TU Graz have been maintaining a teaching and research cooperation. The cooperation enables students from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at TU Darmstadt to work with architecture students at TU Graz. Conversely, the architecture students learn about software methods from Informatics in Civil Engineering such as BIM and Virtual Reality and apply them to immersively process their building models.

Workshop content

After travelling to Graz in the summer semester of 2022 (Read here), the architecture students from Graz are coming to TU Darmstadt from 22 to 25 November. This is where you come in: In interdisciplinary teams, you will develop a VR application with the game engine Unity together with the students from Graz based on their architectural designs. Unity is the most widespread game engine and is – although originally designed for the development of games – becoming increasingly popular in engineering.

You will be supported by the research assistants of the IIB Maximilian Gehring and Pascal Mosler , who will give you an introduction to Unity during the workshop week with a focus on programming, VR and interaction in multiplayer scenarios. The workshop starts on Tuesday morning, 22 November and ends on Friday afternoon, 25 November with the presentation of the results.

You are welcome to participate in the evening and excursion programme with the students from Graz (in planning, e.g. Mathildenhöhe).


Interested in taking part? Just send an email (subject: “Unity Workshop”) with your name and study programme to Pascal Mosler by 6 November 2022:

If you have already gained knowledge of the programming language C# through courses such as GDI und DFI , or if you have already worked with Unity, please also write this in the email. However, you can also participate without any previous knowledge. We would be pleased if you could be present for the majority of the workshop period. Please note that the workshop will mainly be held in German.
