Department of Civil Engineering

Structural engineering, mechanics and computation

We investigate the performance of different structures and construction materials and develop solutions for smart, resilient, and sustainable civil engineering structures. 
What do we do?

As a multidisciplinary group of research teams, we holistically tackle today’s challenges (e.g., sustainable development) that are connected to our built environment by contributing our expertise in theoretical and applied research to innovative solutions, based on analytical, experimental, and computational methods. Research teams in this focus area collaborate nationally and internationally with academic, industrial, and other societal partners.
