Tamara Haußer studied civil engineering at Biberach University of Applied Sciences (HBC) from 2015 to 2020. In 2017, she spent a semester abroad at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Vancouver, Canada.
During her Master's degree, Tamara already taught the practice lecture of technical mechanics at HBC and also worked in an engineering office for structural design. This gave her insights into both the teaching activities and the working methods of a structural engineer.
After completing her Master's degree, she worked as a project engineer in bridge construction at LAP-Consult. In the engineering office, she was involved in a research project to maximise the service life of existing bridge structures and in the planning of a cable-stayed bridge with a main span of 280 m, among other things.
As the topic of sustainable action is becoming more and more present, she is pleased to have the opportunity as a research associate at KIT to contribute to the research of new technologies and alternative materials and to bring sustainable construction methods into practice.
