COVID-19: Special teaching, learning and examination formats
In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, we are working on alternatives that will allow courses to be delivered as "distance learning" and "blended learning". These will include the following courses.
- B4 Bachelorthesis bicycle parking garage HBF Aachen
- CAAD.start (DC.start) takes place as a pure online course with drop-in support via video conference.
- Advanced Fundamentals of Building Information Modelling
More details will be available soon on the pages of the Teaching

About dc | ac
The design, planning, construction and operation of user-friendly and sustainable buildings and cities require the close cooperation among many.
The efficient communication between stakeholders is a key factor for the integration of knowledge and information of different disciplines and domains. Next to traditional, two-dimensional technical drawings, a wide range of digital tools are increasingly being used across the whole lifecycle of buildings. These tools are based on shared, interdisciplinary building information models (BIM) that can be used for e.g. requirements management, parametric design variations or the simulation of building physics performance, structural behavior and construction processes.
The study, understanding, application and development of these fundamental methods, technologies and tools are the central aspects of the chair Design Computation – CAAD (Computer Aided Architectural Design).
