The pedagogical and research activities of the department are focused on computer science together with system and optimization modelling for the needs of the building industry and capital construction. The basis is formed by the following theoretical disciplines: mathematical modelling, system modelling, computer systems and information technologies. These disciplines are applied in design and management in the building industry. A specific research focus of the department is on the analysis and information support for the management of construction companies, construction and design offices, as well as the application and development of CAD and GIS systems in designing. The current topic is the introduction of a BIM approach to all areas of construction industry from construction preparation to operation. The department is equipped with a computer lab providing students with access to personal computers and to the university computer network. The department provides education in the doctoral degree in the branch of Systems Engineering in the Building Industry and Capital Construction.
