Professor Augenbroe received an MSc cum laude in Civil Engineering from TU Delft in the Netherlands in 1975. During the early part of his academic career in Europe he pioneered a commercial finite element toolbox for building simulation, and managed national and international projects on energy saving, technologies for engineering interoperability and semantic building product models. In the mid eighties, he was one of the lead contractors of the government funded Building Information Modeling (BIM) effort in the Netherlands. In the nineties he led a consortium of academic researchers and industrial developers in the COMBINE effort (Computer Models for the Building Industry in Europe), a 70 man-year project spanning 1990-1995. This project delivered the first prototypes of the next generation of integrated engineering design systems with emphasis on building energy performance, sustainability and services engineering.

Research Interests

Building performance concepts and simulation, control of smart systems, e-Business, system monitoring and diagnostics. He has also established an active research record in building process studies, construction project management, web hosted collaboration, and knowledge management, dealing with the development of software tools, their interoperability and their business integration.

Augenbroe recently co-authored a book on advanced topics in building performance assessment, published by SPON. He is Associate Editor of the Architectural Engineering and Design Management Journal (James & James), and on the scientific board of five other international journals. He has published over 100 refereed papers. He has chaired three major conferences and delivered 7 keynote lectures at international conferences. He is board member of the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA) and was the chair of IBPSA's bi-annual conference in August 2003. He currently holds a visiting professor appointment at Loughborough University in the UK.
