Down to the Tiniest Detail

The development of new materials essentially relies on knowledge of the chemical and mineralogical composition of starting materials and finished products.

Civil engineering and pipeline construction are crucial for a functioning urban infrastructure.

The Building Materials and Process Engineering research field investigates and develops the scientific and technical bases for the extraction of raw materials and the production and processing of building materials.

Reducing Consumption, Storing Surpluses

Energy and resource efficiency enable significant reductions in production costs.

One of the main areas of activity of the IAB is the development of sophisticated quality control systems.

Virtual environments are increasingly used to design and optimise machines, processes and structures.
