Revitalisation of industrial buildings

The course provides insights into various research areas of real estate project development and real estate management. Students are given the opportunity to scientifically work on compact topics related to the real estate industry. The application of the rules of good scientific practice and the work with different types of information and sources are the focus of attention.

Within the research field "Revitalisation of Industrial Buildings", students analyse examples of industrial buildings that have already been converted. First of all, the students carry out detailed research on various revitalised industrial buildings from different federal states. The research results are then summarised in the form of a written analysis and presented in a uniform way.

The research field can be taken either as 3 ECTS or 6 ECTS courses.
