International Relations


© Thomas Linner / Chair for Building Realization and Robotics

The Master Course equally addresses national and international students. As an approved High-Tech country and a prestigious university location, Germany – and especially Munich – traditionally attracts an international public. For the mutual interexchange with universities of other industrial countries plays a big part for that purpose, whereby the Chair for Building Realization and Robotics makes an attractive contribution towards tat:

In context of the ICI ECP „AUSMIP“ (Industrialized Countries Instrument Education Cooperation Program „Architecture and Urbanism Student Mobility International Program“) scholarships for a six- to eightmonthly stay abroad at a Japanese University (The University of Tokyo, Kyushu University, Chiba University) are to be given. The mobility project is already in the 3rd round. In the context of the first round (AUSMIP, 2003 bis 2007), the organizing professor consortium received an award as a „Best Practice“ example. A core topic of the extended, 3rd cooperation is „Demographic Change, Assisted Living and Assistive Technologies“.

Additionally to the travelling scholarships the incorporation of the Master Modules of the Course Advanced Construction and Building Technology to an international Master Course is designated. This international Master Course shall be formed in context of ICI ECP AUSMIP – R&DaR (Regular & Dispatched ausmip Rotation), in which the TUM, the Sint-Lucas School of Architecture, Belgium, and The University of Tokio, Japan, have been successfully participating for years now.

The AUSMIP Program is leadingly organized and conducted by the Chair for Building Realization and Robotics. Altogether 103.000 € are available to the Chair sole for student’s mobility. Japan and Germany are among the most badly affected countries with regard to the demographicchange, so both countries are firmly interested in the development of High-Tech assistive systems. Additionally, Japan, Korea, and Scandinavian countries are very advanced in the field of technologization of the building industry and it’s utilization, and thereby attractive cooperation partners for the Faculty for Architecture at the TUM as well as for the Chair for Building Realization and Robotics. The personal technical network of the chair holder is focused on the above mentioned countries, so a distinctly productive collaboration is to be expected.
