Teaching

University Chairs

Applied research is carried out through close collaboration between the Stuttgart, Holzkirchen (Munich) and Kassel sites of the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP. Students in the faculties of the Institute for Acoustics and Building Physics (IABP) at the University of Stuttgart and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are given the option to participate in laboratory courses at the Fraunhofer IBP as an elective. Our wide range of technical facilities is also available to degree students, Bachelor's and Master's graduates and doctoral students.

The University of Stuttgart, Institute for Acoustics and Building Physics (IABP)

More than thirty years ago, the Chair of Structures of Buildings (LKB) was founded at the University of Stuttgart, with the aim of teaching the subject of building physics to future civil engineers. Today, the University of Stuttgart’s Institute for Acoustics and Building Physics (IABP) is committed to responding to the current challenges of sustainably shaping the built environment. Projects and topics such as Life Cycle Engineering, the "Building Physics Learning Network" and the role of building physics in modernizing existing buildings are just some examples of the Institute’s scientific orientation.

Master Online "Acoustics", "Building Physics", and "Climate and Cultural Adapted Buildings"

In 2007, the Chair of Building Physics (LBP) at the University of Stuttgart developed the degree program "Master Online Building Physics", which was funded by the Baden-Württemberg State Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts. As the first master’s degree program in building physics, it was accredited by the accreditation organization ASIIN. Meanwhile, another two advanced degree programs have been initiated, which benefit from the wealth of experience acquired in the field of advanced online study programs. The "Master Online Acoustics" program has been launched at the start of the winter semester 2017/18, while the program "Master Online Climate and Cultural Adapted Buildings" (MOCC) is expected to be available in summer 2019. In conjunction with several partnering institutions from the University of Stuttgart, IABP has developed and established a specific didactic concept, which was specially designed to optimally integrate further education with the students’ daily lives. The customized, multimedia online master programs in acoustics and building physics offer them the opportunity to advance their studies and enhance their personal qualifications while working. Conveying well-founded knowledge, these study programs are targeted on the actual needs of current practice. By completing the unique academic degrees "Master of Acoustics" (M.Ac.) and "Master of Building Physics" (M.BP.) the graduates will improve their career chances and development.
