... develop, design, create, construct, calculate, manage, organise, build ... The work of architects is very diverse, there are various tasks to be completed and they work either on national or on an international level. Thus, it is the goal of this education, once the studies are complete, to be able to solve multifarious planning tasks in a create and professional manner. The degree programme teaches students theoretical and practical knowledge, creative and artistic skills, and gives them cross-subject insights into related disciplines like planning and execution processes. As the degree programme spans over eight semesters, graduates can become a member of the Chamber of Architects after just two years (according to current legislature).

Academic Advisory Service

The Academic Advisory Service assists students and those interested in becoming students with all enquiries regarding degree programmes. In the field of preparatory advice, the focus is on the following topics: admission requirements, financing options, study options and conditions. The most important information is provided in one-to-one discussions as well as through information events held by our University.
