Definition of the field of studies

The core skills of architecture 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 consists of compulsory subjects, elective subjects that must be chosen from a list and elective subjects that can be chosen freely, and additional qualifications (soft skills). The following compulsory subjects are relevant: orientation course, civil engineering, construction and building execution, planning, urban planning, drawing in theory and history. There are four elective subjects to be chosen from a list. These are: technology, theory and history, general elective subjects and elective seminar. Here students can choose at least one course from a list of courses (except for the elective seminar). The content of the elective seminar is academic dealing with a special field of architecture; this at the same time is the first bachelor thesis. Two bachelor theses must be written. The topic of the second thesis is the module Planning. In this thesis an architectural project must be planned in which the skills gained in the different studios (spatial design, domestic architecture, building theory, civil engineering and urban planning) are to be applied in an integrative way.
