Welcome to the Institute of Building Physics!

The Institute of Building Physics at Technische Universität München acts as a research institution for national and international standardization committees and gives adivice to Germany's Federal Ministry of Transportation, Building and Urban Development; for instance, for the implementation of the EU Directive "Energy Performance of Buildings". Issues of sustainability and climate protection such as reducing CO2-emissions of buildings are already part of current directives, for which Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerd Hauser is a leading researcher.



Investigations and applied science in the realm of building physics are conducted in close cooperation with Fraunhofer institute for Building Physics with its locations in Stuttgart, Holzkirchen (near Munich) and Kassel. Students get the opportunity to participate in practical laboratory courses when choosing corresponding elective courses at the university. Manifold technical equipment and facilities can be utilized by bachelor and master graduates, as well as Ph.D. students.



For ongoing research activities in the field of sustainable buildings, an extra group was established to consult the industry for both new construction and refurbishment. The Institute of  Building Physics is an original member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen), is engaged in developing a new German certification system, and will issue those certificates.
