Technischen Universität Berlin
TU Berlin is one of the leading technical universities in Germany with more than 30.000 students. The university is structured into seven faculties. The research work on the P2Endure project will be conducted by the Bauinformatik group at TU Berlin that is working in the field of computing in Civil Engineering and by the newly installed chair for Systems Engineering. Both chairs belong to the Institute of Civil Engineering. The group in Bauinformatik covers at present time about 10 persons. A major research focus is in the field of process modeling in civil engineering. Research in the field of geometric modeling is in a preparation phase. Some results have already been published. Modern technologies are presented to students. There is a long tradition in teaching object oriented modeling. Since more than three years, a course in Building Information Modelling has been established in the bachelor program in Civil Engineering. The newly established chair in Systems Engineering research will focus on understanding, designing, and engineering complex civil engineering systems, such as infrastructure and buildings. The chair will be led by Prof. Dr. Timo Hartmann, an experienced researcher that has worked in this field for many years.
