Teaching und research unit Head Overview
Urban and Transport Planning, ISB Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Kuhnimhof The institute researches the effects and potentials of technical and organizational innovations for the city and transport of the future.
Highway Engineering, ISAC


The Institute of Highway Engineering researches, develops, plans, and advises in all areas of civil engineering, planning, operation, and traffic engineering of roads as well as tunnel equipment and operation.
Modeling and Design of Functionalized Pavement Materials, ISAC Juniorprof. Dr.-Ing. Pengfei Liu

The research focuses of the junior professorship are on the simulation and design of functionalized pavement materials. Methodological approaches include multi-scale and multi-physical simulation of pavement materials, requirements-based and computer-aided design of functionalized materials, programming and application of numerical methods on pavement engineering, experimental characterization of material properties and their use for life cycle analysis.

Railway Engineering and Transport Economics, VIA Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Nils Nießen The Chair of Railway Engineering and Transport Economics researches the digital and automated railway operation of the future.
Airports and Air Traffic (DLR) Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Nils Nießen The Chair is concerned with sustainability in the steadily growing air traffic sector. Research into low-noise, efficient flight procedures and the integration of new mobility concepts are therefore central research focuses of the chair.
Geomechanics and Underground Technology (GUT) Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Raul Fuentes Gutierrez Geotechnics deals with the soil as a foundation element, as a building material, for embedding underground structures, and as a useful space for energy generation and storage.
Building informatics and Geoinformation Systems Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Blankenbach The chair is concerned with precise georeferencing as well as digital 3D acquisition, modeling, and visualization of the built environment.
