Prof. Dr.-Ing Markus König awarded Konrad Zuse-Medal


Prof. Dr. Markus König is awarded the Konrad Zuse Medal from the Central Association of the German Building Industry (ZDB). It is the most important award in the field of Computing in Engineering.

The association recognizes Prof. König's achievements in the digitalization of construction engineering, and especially the implementation of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Germany.

The ZDB Konrad Zuse Medal has been awarded alternately since 1981 by the ZDB and the GI to personalities who have made outstanding contributions to computing in engineering or computing in general. The aim of the award is to preserve the merits of computer science pioneer Konrad Zuse, to promote the use of the latest information and communication technologies in construction and, last but not lest, to make computer science visible to a wider public.

The medal will be awarded on November 17, 2020 at the 13th German Obermeistertag in Berlin.
