of Twente , Faculty of Engineering, Department of Civil Engineering
and Management. Civil Engineering & Management operates at the
interface of Civil Engineering, Business Management and Public Administration.
It attempts to acquire qualitative and quantitative knowledge on
all phases of the lifecycle of civil engineering systems and objects,
i.e. initiative, design, production, operation, maintenance and
demolition, all in a societal and environmental context. CE&M
aims at disseminating this knowledge among students and practitioners,
e.g. via the development of practically applicable and transferable
methodologies and tools for the design, analysis and control of
infra structural civil engineering systems and the integrated design
and construction of civil engineering objects. It strives to provide
the university with a technical basis in civil engineering, and
to place this in the relevant managerial, administrative and environmental
context. It is interdisciplinary and international in its orientation
and seeks relations with other universities and organisations that
are leading in this field.
Research for the Integrated Modelling Group: The key element of
the programme is model integration, i.e. bringing knowledge components
(often existing models) together and making them communicate and
interact. The objective is to be so much in control of the modelling
process and the compound model itself, that acceptable levels of
model validity, efficiency and predictive capability can be achieved.
