University of Twente (UT): Partner 17

University of TwenteUniversity 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.
