Definition of the field of studies

The core skills of the degree programme in Building Science and Technology are planning, construction and design. Tasks include detailed planning, support structure planning and object planning, urban development, landscape design and spatial planning as well as the design of virtual spaces, always taking into account artistic, technical, ecological and social aspects.


The degree programme is divided into six modules. These are: fundamentals, building performance, design computing, concentration subjects, elective subjects architecture and related technical sciences and elective subjects and additional qualifications. In the fundamentals module the basics of building science, such as application of digital and metrological tools are taught. The building performance module is characterised by the teaching of knowledge in building physics, building ecology and sustainable building, human ecology, building diagnosis and building control and application of artificial intelligence methods in building sciences. The design computing module concentrates on the application of architectural planning and visualisation tools. Students can enhance their knowledge in the concentration courses in fundamentals, building performance or design computing. The degree programme concludes with a master’s thesis and an examination covering subject matter from all subjects.
