Research focus

With the help of the focal points, the department intends to sharpen its profile in comparison with the university civil and environmental engineering faculties, in order to improve its attractiveness for prospective students, also beyond the region, and to increase its volume of third-party funding.

To this end, the department uses a large number of laboratories and research facilities.

Current and completed research projects in detail can be researched via the central research portal of the University of Kassel (CONVERIS information system).

Specialist breadth as a strength

Climate change and environmental protection, technological competition and demographic development generate high demands on research and development. The University of Kassel assumes responsibility here and contributes to problem solutions from basic research to application. The department has taken up these issues and broken them down to the level of civil and environmental engineering in order to anchor itself in the university's research profile with its research foci. It focuses primarily on materials engineering, climate protection, and socio-technical systems for connected life.

In view of the very broad range of disciplines in civil and environmental engineering, the profiles of the department's five institutes already represent focal points.

Research focus

In addition, the department has agreed on four main research areas, which are in turn networked with each other in a variety of ways and have great potential for cross-institutional cooperation.
