The department of "Timber Structures and Building Rehabilibation" at the University of Kassel represents the fields of building construction, timber engineering and building rehabilitation in teaching.

Research focuses on the use of adhesive bonding technology for innovative timber structures, the earthquake resistance of timber structures, and the development of novel form-fit connections in timber construction.

Numerous practice-oriented research projects in the department are concerned with the load-bearing behavior of existing building structures made of wood, masonry and reinforced or reinforced concrete. Computational methods are supplemented by measurements on structures and component tests in the laboratory.
