Resource scarcity and climate targets mean that alternative paths must be taken for a sustainable future. In the area of construction and energy infrastructure, there is a great need for research and innovation, which is taken up by the research and development area "Smart Building and Smart City".
R&D Smart Building and Smart City
The research and development area "Smart Building and Smart City" deals with the three interlocking research focal points:
- Smart Building Components
- Smart Building
- Smart City
The research and development area "Smart Building and Smart City" is closely linked to the Bachelor's degree programme Smart Building - Energy Efficient Building Technology and Sustainable Construction and the Master's degree programme Smart Buildings in Smart Cities - Energy Infrastructure and District Renewal.
It is of central importance to take a holistic approach to the interaction between technical building equipment and the built environment, as well as to consider the interaction between people, energy and the environment. The knowledge gained in research is transferred directly to the students within the framework of the courses. The close coupling of teaching with research enables a sound education at the most up-to-date level of knowledge.
The research and development area of the Smart Building degree programme has already established itself in the national and international research environment. The R&D team is always striving to open up new research fields and expand partnerships.

As in the study programme, the aim in research & development is to pursue the holistic approach, the interaction between technical building equipment and the built environment. This integral approach is reflected in all research foci.
The three interlocking research pillars cover the subject area of the degree programme in different dimensions. The overarching goal in all three pillars is comfort, user comfort and architectural quality.
