What is more, students acquire multi-disciplinary skills and knowledge around the planning, construction and operation of buildings. They understand the digital transformation processes of the construction and real estate industry, the impact of digitalization and the associated risks and opportunities. They have knowledge, skills and basic practical experience in digital methods, technologies and forms of collaboration and are familiar with the design, application and use of a digital twin across the full life cycle. They understand, and know the methods for, the work with structured information and are able to implement data strategies and data-based use cases. They are trained to work with their own and other people’s skills, to develop a universal ability to solve problems and to deal with ongoing changes, increasing connectivity and interlaced processes.
The following degrees are available:
- Bachelor of Arts, Digital Construction in Architecture
- Bachelor of Science, Digital Construction in Structural Engineering
- Bachelor of Science, Digital Construction in Building Technology
o Specialization in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Sanitation Technology (HVACS)
o Specialization in Building Electrical Engineering (BEE)
Graduates of the Bachelor’s programs in Digital Construction (DC) are prepared to make gainful use of their digital skills in the planning, realization or operation of buildings in general construction and civil engineering. They make a sustainable contribution towards meeting project specifications and objectives using digital methods, technologies and suitable forms of collaboration to increase efficiency, quality, transparency and sustainability alike.
Typically, they work in an architecture, structural engineering or building technology firm, either in model-based project management or in the field of data-based services. Other possibilities include employment with a contractor, in fields such as model-based prefabrication, fabrication, assembly support or integrated construction logistics. Work in the construction industry, such as research and development of new digital products is another possibility.
And, of course, there is a range of other job opportunities in the many emerging companies with leading-edge digital products and solutions, for example in the fields of scanning/photogrammetry, model-based simulations, data-based use cases, information management, data warehousing, data quality assurance, BIM-based facility management, common data environment, agile execution, immersive collaboration, extended reality, lean construction management, integrated construction logistics, smart building, smart city, machine learning and artificial intelligence.
