Ernst Wolfgang Lewicki

Ernst Wolfgang Lewicki (* 29. April 1894 in Dresden; † 28. March 1973 in Dresden) was a civil engineer and a scientist.

Ernst Wolfgang Lewicki became to 29. April 1894 in Dresden born. As a professor to DO Dresden played it with the shaping of the subject building operating nature within the civil engineering a substantial role.

He was grandchild of Professor. Leonidas Lewicki (starting from 1874 held the chair for customer of building of machines and sketching) and son of Ernst Anton Lewicki, which was from 1906 to 1931 an extraordinary professor for mechanical engineering/construction from steam boilers, hydraulic engines and steam turbines the TH Dresden.

Lewicki („the Lewitzki “speaks itself) was appointed in November 1951 to „the chair for massive bridges, foundation engineering and building enterprise “. With reproduction and by conviction he pursued the idea to give to the building enterprise an adequate position. This led finally to the fact that to 01. September 1955 „Institut for building operating natures was created “. At the same time with the establishment of institute a field was created „building operating natures “, which apart from the existing fields „constructional civil engineering “contained, „of town plannings “and „hydraulic engineering “after the Vordiplom deepened training of the students in build-technological area.

Lewicki had existed 1913 its Abitur at the cross High School in Dresden and afterwards at the TH Dresden civil engineering had studied. After the diploma 1921 was it and others Leader of building of governments with the road and office for hydraulic engineering Schwarzenberg and technical designer, construction supervisor as well as upper construction supervisor at the company Gebr. Climb Munich. 1927 and 1928 he was active as a civil engineer of the Detroit Edison company in the Detroit/USA.

Further stations of its working life were among other things construction supervisor for buildings of reinforced concrete bridges at the company Josef voter & cost. GmbH Munich (1933 - 1934), technical manager at the company Wayss & Freytag AG, address Dresden (1934) and managing director and technical manager of the united civil engineering enterprises GmbH Dresden (1946)

Lewicki in November 1951 to „the chair for massive bridges, foundation engineering and building enterprise “the TH Dresden was appointed. With reproduction and by conviction he pursued the idea to give to the building enterprise an adequate position. This led finally to the fact that to 01. September 1955 „Institut for building operating natures was created “- to Berlin and Munich the third-oldest in Germany. At the same time with the establishment of institute a field was created „building operating natures “, which apart from the existing fields „constructional civil engineering “contained, „of town plannings “and „hydraulic engineering “after the Vordiplom deepened training of the students in build-technological area.

Emphasis of the lehr and research work was the planning and control of expirations of building, the mechanism of large-scale building sites, the building mechanization, building with precast concrete parts and building on winter conditions.

For knowledge transfer, not only for students, but likewise for specialists from building practice, „the seminar for constructional civil engineering and building operating nature developed “, which this very day as „seminar for building industry “at the faculty Bauingenierwesen DO to Dresden in regular rotation different topics treated.

In the years 1955 to 1957 was Professor. Lewicki Dekan of the faculty building industry. It was emeritiert 1962.

1968 became Lewicki the Dr. h.c. the university for building industry Leipzig appointed. It died to 28. March 1973 in Dresden.
