Technische Universität Wien

As a centre for advanced studies, the overall mission of the Department of Building Physics and Building Ecology, Vienna University of Technology (TUW) is to promote, develop, and disseminate scientific and technical knowledge, methods, tools, and skills toward enhancing the sustainability and habitability of the built environment. The Department's research and teaching activities cover a wide spectrum, including building informatics (computational building performance assessment, integrated design support tools), building diagnostics and monitoring, building automation, building physics (thermal, visual, and acoustical performance of buildings), building ecology (energy efficient and sustainable building design and operation, life-cycle assessment of built environment). The Department has a sustained and successful track record in conducting nationally and internationally funded research projects especially in the areas of building physics, building diagnostics, and building automation.
