Master programme Architecture (E)

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

The field of activity that the students will be prepared for through the master's degree programme in architecture and for which the master thesis project qualifies them is in a perpetual state of flux, one that has been rapidly accelerating, above all, since the advent of digital data processing and the virtualisation of architecture – and it will only continue to increase in speed. Graduates possess a high level of flexibility with which to adapt to new situations and have firm command over the latest technologies and tools. This prepares them for all architectural tasks, from spatial planning to interior design, and gives them the requisite organisational skills needed to tackle an increasingly complex production process. To link theory and practice successfully from the beginning of the degree programme the university provides specially equipped rooms for this. These design studios are characterised by knowledge transfer in small groups which connects all students through common topics to examine the paradigms of contemporary architecture in an exemplary way.

Definition of the field of studies

Architecture intensively deals with planning and design of buildings and thus in the broadest sense represents the dealing of man with built space.

Exams

The degree programme consists of four modules (architectural design, expertise, integration and free topics). Students have to create five architectural plans. The Expertise module is divided into the three groups of subjects Implementation, Theory and Implementation and Communication. Each group of subjects contains core subjects and supplementary subjects. From the three groups of subjects integrative courses in the context of architectural planning (architectural planning 5) must be studied additionally. This corresponds to the module Integration. It is possible to do part of the free topics as a work placement in the form of qualified practical work in an architectural firm. The degree programme concludes with a master's thesis and a master’s examination.

Entrance examinations

Admission to the programme requires proof of artistic aptitude. The entrance examination is held before a committee and consists of three parts: portfolio, interview and preparation of subject-related artistic tasks.

Supplementary examinations

None
