Building Realization and Robotics


 

aboutus_new_450x422

Mission of the chair for Building Realization and Robotics is to extend the traditional core competences of design and build, broadening the activity area of future graduates, professionals and creating new employment opportunities. Located at TUM within the Bavarian high tech cluster -in which the chair is well connected - the chair functions as an incubator for the development and socio-technically integrated and building related technologies. In the Master Course Advanced Construction and Building Technology which the chair is coordinating since 2011 the chair has achieved to concentrate students coming from 8 different professional backgrounds (Architecture, Industrial Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Business Science, Interior Design, Informatics, Mechanical Engineering).

The Chair for Building Realization and Robotics merges management competency (construction management, technology management, innovation management) with competency in advanced technologies (production technology, ICT, Microsystems technology, mechatronics, automation, robotics, personal assistance technology) and applies it to solve future demographic challenges of our society by considering all phases of building's lifecycle (development, planning, construction, use/performance, de-construction/end-of-life).

The chair defines architecture as a service to society and construction as a production process which assists demographic transformations by advanced building performance. The chair believes that the delivery of future high-tech environments/buildings to reasonable cost is dependent upon highly efficient production methods. Thus the chair follows and promotes the philosophy that frontier engineering sciences breed innovations. These innovations are driven and amplified by globalization, closed loop resource utilization, transformation of technological potentials, environmental and demographic challenges.

Global competition brought inflationary labour capacities resulting in decreasing labour costs. But to achieve welfare and culture any society needs sufficient income. To provide sufficient income for creating wealth and culture one has to be efficient. "One has to be good to be expensive": High income is based on high tech, if you can't just sell natural resources. The demographic change requires even more efficient socio-economical and socio-technical processes to be affordable.

The notion of "Made in Germany" is internationally famous for its cars, machines, industrial facilities, and medical and environmental technologies. Its success is based on research and innovation, stressing that future wealth can only be generated by innovation leaps and radically new types of value design and engineering. Half of total investment is allocated in built environment, infrastructure, and facilities, signifying the strategic importance of the construction sector.

The future construction sector will expand to new business fields by absorbing advanced technologies from various disciplines. Its success will depend on its innovation leap ability of the complete value chain of the artefactual engineering and built environment by embedding ICT, automation, robotics and services. This approach will create new markets, qualifications, skills and professions.

Even though architecture and construction are the focal points of the chair, it cross links considerably to other disciplines and faculties such as potential psycho-social health transformation of future societies and incubates it into augmented skill formation for socio-technical qualifications of next generation engineers.
