The ninties - Time for structural change
After a period of extensive reform between 1991 and 1996, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar restructured itself with faculties of Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning, Civil Engineering, Art and Design, and Media.
The chairs of the former faculties of Building Materials Processing Technology, Regional Planning and Urban Development, and Computer Technology and Data Processing were incorporated into the Faculties of Civil Engineering and Architecture/Urban and Regional Planning. Signalling a return to the artistic traditions of the Bauhaus period, the university established the Faculties of Art and Design (1993) and Media (1996).
On account of the special structure of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, the Faculty of Civil Engineering not only corresponds to the classic profile of a civil engineering department, but also includes chairs in the areas of Mathematics, Information Technology, Natural Sciences, Environmental Technology, Traffic Planning and Process Engineering.
Over the course of its 50-year history, a long line of outstanding scholars and university instructors have shaped the Faculty of Civil Engineering and enhanced its reputation in academics and research. Several of these renowned individuals include the professors Heinrich Zeidler (founding dean), Friedrich August Finger, Friedrich Hagedorn, Gustav Batereau, Horst Matzke, Hermann Reinicke, Wilhelm von Wölfel and Erhard Hampe.
