is permanent except change"
engineering sciences increasingly 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 labor capacities resulting in decreasing labor 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, medical and environmental technologies. Its success is
based on research and innovation, stressing that future wealth can only
be generated by innovational 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 IAARC courses are
tailored to offer solutions to the above mentioned challenges. 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.
architecture and construction are the focal points of our courses, they
cross link 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.
socio-ecologic engineers will be prepared to tackle yet unknown
challenges by designing solutions for future technology, economy,
ecology, and society. They apply frontier science competence and define
cross disciplinary domains permanently. The IAARC courses can be
considered as an incubator for strategic design and development of
continuous improvement and innovation for lifelong learning.
