Abstract

This paper starts with a short introduction to the subject of construction logistics. It illuminates the differences between a high industry demand for skilled professionals for construction logistics tasks and the restrained offer of such courses in the academic environment. The contrast between construction logistics companies and the limited availability of related university courses backs them up. The authors suggest a lecture structure based on the “construction logistics” course at TUM, which combines theoretical sessions and a simulation part. Further, the individual session headings are listed together with a brief content description. The study progress of the participants is evaluated via a group project derived from a real-world project. Besides a report of possible examination tasks, a short excursion toward the evaluation criteria is being made. In the end, limitations regarding the validity of course content depending on the region are proposed.
