Overview of the courses offered by the Institute

The basic and advanced courses of the IIB teach students the contents of construction informatics as well as the transformation and digitization processes in construction and environmental engineering. The focus is on Building Information Modeling (BIM), computer-aided planning and engineering, software development as well as data processing and analysis. The courses are aimed at students from the fields of civil engineering, environmental engineering, engineering management (specializing in civil engineering), computational engineering and computer science (subject construction informatics).
