    Extending course offers starting this winter term

    Digitalization is also making steady progress in the construction and environmental sectors. Building Information Modeling (BIM) in particular is the fundamental method for digitizing engineering planning, implementation and operation through to dismantling and demolition of buildings in the sense of urban mining. In addition, there is the management of environmental and terrain information in the tool category Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the management of sensor data for intelligent buildings. This is where the new subject profile „Digitales Bau‐ und Umweltinformationsmanagement“ (Digital Construction, Civil and Environmental Information Management) comes in, which will be available to Bachelor's and Master's students in the coming winter semester in the “Business Administration/Industrial Engineering – Specialising in Civil Engineering” degree program.
