  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Architecture Department offers a unique studio system involving at least 3 teaching areas. This interdisciplinary instruction thus matches up with the subsequent job description. Its size (Germany’s smallest university department) provides a personal atmosphere. Students are also personally supervised by professors. All students work on a semester project as part of All School Charrette, the department-wide study week. The entire department goes on a trip during Excursion Week.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Alongside the standard Erasmus links with Spain, Italy, Poland and Portugal, there is also a range of direct contact with higher education institutions in Asia and South America. Special programmes such as summer schools or student exchanges are regularly offered here. At the same time, the direct contact with the lecturers also enables great individual freedom in shaping the international focus.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    24-hour workshop for model-making for use in traditional, artisanal machining and materials-tailored; digital workshop for cutting, engraving, milling and printing in 3D.

  • Other special features
    As of the 2017/18 winter semester, the department has established a unique studio model in which students can gain a Bachelor's, Master's or Diplom degree. All students work in manageable studio sizes in the department itself with direct supervision by the teaching staff. This promotes intensive academic exchange and intensifies individual support. The architecture gallery at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern belongs to the department and is unique in Germany. It regularly hosts internal and external events.
