The Laboratory for Computer Science in Civil Engineering offers the digital infrastructure for courses, student research projects and final theses as well as interdisciplinary cooperation in projects (e.g. group work) in civil engineering. This applies in particular to digital design and construction and thus to the methodology Building Information Modeling (BIM). The students of the Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences should learn to apply this method. The Laboratory for Computer Science in Civil Engineering provides the digital tools to learn processes and tasks for planning, coordination, agreement and documentation activities.
The Laboratory for Computer Science in Civil Engineering supervises all construction-related courses of study of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Building Physics and Economics in the procurement, installation and maintenance of IT systems for professors, staff and students' workspaces in order to be able to meet the challenges of digitisation. The main focus is on the necessary hardware and software equipment for courses as well as student research projects and theses.
The laboratory staff - Mr. Moulin and Mr. Möser - currently supervise about 150 computers in PC lecture halls and at workstations. In addition, there are about 60 mobile computers and printers of the professors and staff. The hardware equipment includes a 3D printer, two virtual reality (VR) glasses and a drone.
The hardware and software for the workstations of students, professors and staff are always kept up to date. In view of the ever increasing importance of digitisation (in the building industry) and the associated digitally networked, interdisciplinary cooperation, a growing demand for courses as well as student research projects and theses with hardware and software applications can be expected.
