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 the areas (examination subjects) planning, modules and general elective subjects as well as elective subjects that can be chosen freely, and soft skills. The subject Planning consists of courses in which an architectural project will be planned and developed. Here we distinguish between Major Planning and Minor Planning. Modules are groups of elective subjects which serve the individual academic specialisation on the part of the students. General elective subjects are elective subjects that must be chosen from a list of courses of the field of study Architecture. The courses in planning, modules and elective subjects to be chosen from a list relate to four areas of specialisation: civil engineering and constructive design, construction planning and artistic design, urban planning and landscape architecture, and theory, history and conservation of historic monuments. The degree programme concludes with a master thesis and a final exam. The exam begins with the presentation and defence of the master thesis and serves to prove the acquired knowledge and skills in three selected topics of the master programme.
