To better understand the background and complexity of BIM and digitalization within structural engineering, the theoretical approach will highlight the underlying basics first. To draw the line from this theory driven basics to real live application, the thesis will give multiple examples of how BIM is currently used in practice. In addition to the detailed explanation, these examples will serve as a base to analyze the current situation and problems which still need to be overcome. As far as possible for the respective research scope, potential areas of improvements will be outlined. To gain a better understanding of the current importance of BIM and digitalization within the German construction industry, engineers and companies will be surveyed. August 2021
