Welcome to the Institute of Numerical Methods and Informatics in Civil Engineering (IIB)

Our focus in research and teaching is on computer-based methods for modeling and simulation in engineering science tasks. This includes design, development and application of modern procedures, methods and demonstrators of information and communication technology for building design, construction, management and interaction with the environment in terms of the digital transformation of engineering tasks.

    Exploration of the Berlin Underworlds

    31st Forum Bauinformatik [1]

    News from the institute

    The 31st edition of the Forum Bauinformatik, an annual conference especially for young scientists in the field of informatics in civil engineering, took place in Berlin this year. Since 1993, the Institute has participated in the Forum Bauinformatik on an ongoing basis in order to present research work, discuss problems on a subject-specific basis and inform itself about the latest state of research. As always, various contributions on diverse research topics were published and presented.
