administration

International Tendering and construction and real estate
administration

Legislation and law in the construction and real estate indus-try Construction projects normally imply the involvement of many participants (from client to users, from architects and engineers, authorities to the involvement of different con-struction firms). Their development is time consuming and requires huge sums of financial means. Accordingly the rela-tions between the parties involved have to be documented by sound contracts and appropriate regulations. Therefore the basic elements, interrelations and legal systems have to be understood and applied properly. This is of highest impor-tance for international projects with changing systems of law and legislation. The general survey has to be studied in close relation with the FIDIC conditions of contract. To deepen and apply these, homework/assignments have to be performed by solving real-istic cases of contract management.

Financial mathematics and informatics
Finance and investment planning
An obligatory component of every economically oriented study programme is an advanced knowledge to financial mathematics and the present ation of calculations of profitabil-ity. The techniques of the financial mathematics are processed in a way, so that a solid basis is given for investment deci-sions and calculations of life cycle costs. The main emphasis is put on the comprehensibility of calculation processes of dynamic methods of the calculation of profitability under cer-tainty and uncertainty. All mathematical models to be used are derived and explained in detail by extensive examples. Financial mathematical standard software shall not be used, but instead a table calculation programme. The acquired knowledge shall be converted in creation of own calculation sheets (according to a responsible and scientific working with computers). Students shall purchase the competence to recognise the effi-ciency, significance and limits of "classic" methods of in-vestment appraisal. They independently test and review the learned information by individual homework. Management information system
The main challenge in supporting decision processes within construction and real estate management is to gain access to the sources of information available throughout the company and its various information systems. This includes ERP-Systems with the financial and logistics functions as well as solutions focussing on functions like project and contract management, collaboration or graphical software (e.g. CAD, CAFM, GIS). Students shall purchase the competence to understand well known information systems used for the technical and com-mercial issues of real estate management and techniques to establish new management information systems. Finance and investment planning
No study performances presupposing the examination atten-dance are scheduled. The module contents can be described by the following key-words: - Interest and compound interest calculation, - Calculation of present and final value (addition and deduc- - Calculation of bonds, - Calculation of annuities, - Calculation of the capitalised value, - Calculation of the dynamic payback period, - Calculation of the internal rate of return, - Calculation of equivalent annuities, - Sensitivity analysis, - Probable investment appraisal. The teaching contents are direct basis for the module M3.1: Life cycle analysis. Adelmeyer, M. Warmuth, E.: Finanzmathematik für Einstei-ger, Braunschweig 2003 Diederichs, C.

International business
Social and economical sciences are the basis of construction and real estate management. Therefore micro and macro economy offer a coherent system of principles: starting with the smallest units (consumers and producers), explaining the principles of markets within the context of national and global economy. This framework is then specified and detailed by the fundamentals of “business administration”. The knowl-edge of these fields is essential for its modified application to “construction and real estate economy” and afterwards to management.

Project work: International management
Engineers are very project, fact and result oriented. Neverthe-less already for small projects, there are many people in-volved, beside the technical aspects and organisation. Soft skills like management, self-organisation and behaviour are of high importance But this is not done by some tricks and hints. A sound background, a serious philosophy of management is required, as this was developed by Peter Drucker 60 years ago. This interaction of project development and management has to be understood and trained in this module. Description of the unit or respectively units: Project work: International management

Renovation and reconstruction
Construction and real estate markets in most western societies are saturated markets. Therefore an important part of future construc-tion business will occur in existing buildings, i.e. rehabilitation and revitalisation. This requires quite a different approach con-cerning surveying, design, project management, techniques and site management. These have to be understood and trained by theoretical models and practical examples. The course will deepen the students understanding of renovation, preservation and building maintenance. The student will be able to understand: - the possibilities of preservation, - the needs and methods for renovation, - the importance of building maintenance, - building regulations for renovation projects. The focus is needs and methods for renovation and modernisa-tion. It is assumed that the students are familiar with the basic aspects of construction business. By examples from practice these experi-ences are modified and adjusted to building in existing structures and environment. Description of the unit or respectively units: Renovation and reconstruction

Intercultural working and cooperation
Intercultural working, cooperation and communication tried to bring together such relatively unrelated areas as cultural anthropology and established areas of communication. Its core is to establish and understand how people from different cultures communicate with each other. Its charge is to also produce some guidelines with which people from different cultures can better communicate with each other. Cross-cultural communication, as many scholarly fields, is a combination of many other fields. These fields include anthropology, communication. The field has also moved both toward the treatment of interethnic relations, and toward the study of communication strategies used by co-cultural populations, i.e., cooperation and communication strategies used to deal with majority or mainstream populations.
