Forecast Engineering: From Past Design to Future Decisions

The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar will receive about 430’000 euros from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) in the years 2016 - 2019 to strengthen relations with four partner universities in Portugal, Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary. The aim is to help shape innovative developments in civil engineering in intercultural exchange and to promote the specialist, social and language skills of excellent junior staff.

As part of the program lines »Erasmus +« and »Key Action II: Strategic Partnerships«, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is working together with the Universidade de Aveiro (Portugal), the University of Osijek (Croatia), the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (Hungary) and put on a strategic footing. At the center of international cooperation is the exchange of technical competencies in the areas of earthquake engineering, steel and bridge construction, mathematical models and structural analysis.

The range of measures is diverse and spans the faculties of Civil Engineering and Media of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Research and study visits, summer schools, tele-teaching events and guest lecturerships are planned. Particular attention is paid to interdisciplinary research and the promotion of master and doctoral students.
