Prof. Dr Ludwig Martin is Professor for International Management in Engineering. He studied Civil Engineering, specializing in Construction Management, at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany), and later completed his PhD in Construction Managament and Economics at the University of Cape Town (South Africa).

Prior to joining the Pforzheim University Professor Martin worked in Switzerland and South Africa, both in academia and in industry. At the Cape Peninsula University of Technology he initiated and built up study course Facility Management, funded by the German Academic Exchange Programme (DAAD). Through his academic work he was able to publish several papers and received various awards.

Business Analysis in the engineering sector is a key interest of Professor Martin. Throughout his career he has developed the skill to swiftly understand the needs of businesses and communities. A key component here is the correct interpretation of the impact of contexts on the businesses and people involved - particular when analyzing businesses and projects abroad.

His work on the African continent has shaped his ability to be a bridge-builder between actors from emerging and industrialized economies.This is supported through robust competencies in analysis, using various research designs and methodology.
