The Laboratory for Transport and Urban Development is the working title for knowledge transfer and independent project work by the students. Here, students learn to apply the knowledge they have acquired in practice under constant guidance and consultation. This involves the basics of transport science for engineers, such as road and railway construction and operation, airport conception and planning, connections from settlement history to planning law for civil engineers, but also socially important areas such as barrier-free construction in public spaces, local and long-distance mobility in the context of the city, traffic calming alternatives," car-free city" with effects and implementation, alternative public transport services through urban cable cars.

The "lab" is not a physical space where work is done with a smock and protective goggles - it is practice, the city of Bremen and the surrounding area. There, students can try out new ideas or work on measures tested elsewhere in a new location.

Teaching integration

  • The teaching is carried out by Prof. Müller and several lecturers, whereby a proportion of professional practice is also permanently and currently supplemented.
  • In addition, there are various module responsibilities in project modules of the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes, some of which involve all lecturers of the Department of Construction and Environment.


The research of LaVeS is application-related work by the students, which is made accessible to an interested public, e.g. via digital formats as a workshop. There is no third-party funded research; it is the research questions to and by the students that are published as results.
