Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    The focus of the teaching is on design. The particularly spacious facilities of the FB15 building mean that it is open round the clock to enable student work to be carried out there as much as possible (in self-managed work rooms) and so with direct communication. The facilities are rounded off by an in-house IT department with its own print workshop, a professionally managed modelling workshop that is accessible to students, and an extensive library. Practice-related projects (e.g. planning and construction of innovative solar homes) are conducted on a regular basis.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The international focus is still being developed. Efforts are under way to extend the BSc programme to eight semesters with a one-year foreign study programme on request (Bachelor +) in addition to the existing individual options. The department has been successfully involved in international student competitions for many years (e.g. Solar Decathlon, Designing Resilience competition Singapore).
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Universität Politecnica de Catalana (ETSAB), Barcelona, Spanien; École Polytechnique Fédérale (EPF) Lausanne, Lausanne, Schweiz; Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), Stockholm, Schweden; Universidade do Porto, Portugal; Technische Universität Wien, Österreich; Politecnico di Milano, Mailand, Italien; Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin, Irland; Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Nantes, Nantes, Frankreich; Tongji University, Shanghai, China; VirginiaTech, Blacksburg, USA
  • Equipment of the work places
    The faculty offers fixed workstations for around 600 of its students, who manage them independently.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Energy systems of the future (M.Sc. Energy Science and Engineering); Inter-disciplinary Research; building with paper; Graduate colleges: URBANGrad (Graduate School for Urban Studies), structural change and sustainable supply for African cities, KRITIS –
  • Other special features
    The building is open 24/7/365 and is a kind of "home" for the students. This very much helps students identify with their studies. Everything is very close and personal, because the entire administration of services, including advice services etc. are all in the same building. Most of the students and teaching staff know each other personally.
