Construction Management

This page contains automatically translated content.

Complex research initiatives require interdisciplinary participation of scientists from different disciplines. Overarching scientific competencies as well as expertise in construction technology, management and economics are prerequisites for practice-relevant research activities in the field of construction. For this purpose, a cooperative collaboration of different scientists from the fields of architecture, civil engineering and others is indispensable, who bring along special expertise and inspire the joint research and development work.

The IBW combines the existing research activities of professors from different departments and disciplines and sets new research priorities that cover all areas of the construction industry.

Within the Institute of Construction Management (IBW), the Department of Construction Management focuses on content relevant to the technical and economic operation of construction-specific production and business units. This content is understood as the sum of the instruments of entrepreneurial action that must be mastered in order to achieve the project-related construction management goals.

Within this framework, the subject area of construction management also forms an interdisciplinary interface between civil engineering and the specialist disciplines of construction law and business administration.
