Section of Digital Building Technologies
The Section of Digital Building Technologies strives to transform the architecture, engineering, construction, and facility management industry by developing, applying, and integrating new digital methods and technologies across the whole life cycle of buildings and infrastructures. This encompasses the entire chain from initial design through construction to the in-service and reuse phase of valuable assets in the built environment. Our ultimate aim is to achieve on-time, cost-effective, sustainable, high-quality solutions while ensuring the safety, health, and well-being of all project stakeholders and end users.

Solutions to societal challenges
Our research focuses on digital methods and technologies such as extended realities, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing/3D printing, automation and robotics, digital twins, smart materials, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Internet of Things (IoT), and linked data. Leveraging the full potential of these digital innovations offers open, transformative solutions to pressing societal challenges related to the built environment by eliminating emissions and waste, extending asset lifetime, enhancing functionality, improving reusability, all while advancing standards.

In addition to our research activities, we contribute significantly to the education within DTU. We actively participate in various educational programs, covering a range of degrees, including Bachelor, Diploma, Masters, Ph.D., and Executive (lifelong learning) programs. Our teaching mirrors our research interests, providing students with the knowledge and skills to create the sustainable buildings and infrastructures of tomorrow.
