In order to play a part in innovative developments taking place in the construction industry in building information modelling and digitalisation, the department plans a junior professorship of Digital Construction. An appointment to the professorship is expected to be made in the coming semester.

The pilot project investigating the use of underground pump storage at the Prosper-Haniel pit in Bottrop, led by the Chair of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Management, will also be continued after 2016. Both Federal and State Government will fund the second phase until the end of 2018. Researchers from the department of Geology will join the interdisciplinary project team for this purpose.
