Ubiquitous Knowledge Management and Production for Active Aging Society

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research has approved a new research project in the field of “Human Technology Interaction”. The TUM based consortium is led by the Chair of Building Realization and Robotics.

Guest Prof. Dr. med. Kerstin Wessig is member of the Government's Commission of Experts on the Seventh Report on Aging

Since the Summer Semester of 2013, the Chair team is strengthened by a visiting professorship which particularly supports in implementing the issue of socio-technical systems design in the context of an Aging.

Prof. Bock selected by Leibniz-Gemeinschaft into exhibition program committee: “Future Life - the Demographic Opportunity”

The Chair holder was appointed by the Leibniz Society as a member in the program committee for the government’s exhibition “Future Life - the Demographic Opportunity”, which will travel through Germany in 2013 and which will, from January 2014 and onwards, be a guest exhibition in Munich’s Deutsches Museum.

Master Course:
Advanced Construction and Building Technology (M. Sc)

English-language Master of Science four-semester study program. The course aims to extend the core competences of the fields of architecture and construction in response to the rapidly changing technological, social and ecological boundary conditions that inform architecture.

Wonderwall: High-tech home-assisted living for the elderly

Gizmag article about the Cahir’s researchproject LISA in which a mechatronic Wall was developed. Through LISA's mechatronic services, an Ambient intelligence Environment (AmI) can be created within a house or flat.


Erasmus Mundus Programme for Scientists: AUSMIP+

We offer excellent Master & PhD Students and Post-Doctoral researchers the possibility to conduct their study or research in Japan and/or Korea.


PASSAge - Personalized mobility, Assistance and Service Systems in an Aging society

The demographic change in modern societies has a significant impact on the future planning of self-determined mobility and mobility means. An optimized accessibility of the means of transportation is required, as well as their connection towards buildings and residences. These connections have to be modular and compatible to the mobility means of the users.


CIB W119 - Customised Industrial Construction

CIB Working Commission, W119 on “Customised Industrial Construction” has been established as the successor of former TG57 on Industrialisation in Construction and as a joint CIB-IAARC Commission. The Working Coimmission is coordinated by Prof. Dr.-Ing. T. Bock.


JSPS Joint Conference "Socio-technical Innovation" in the Oskar von Miller Forum

Chair of Building Realization and Robotics organized the conference in cooperation with the Japan Society for the Promotion for Sciences. Prof. Bock and the Japanese ambassador welcomed the guests at TUM
