Special features regarding teachingThe KIT faculty of architecture takes a research-oriented approach to teaching. Close links with other universities in Karlsruhe (e.g. HfG, art academy) further expand the range of subjects. Innovative teaching formats such as simulations in the M 1:1 and Design to Build also shape the training in Karlsruhe. In addition to professional knowledge and skills, students are taught critical reflection and are instilled with a sense of responsibility for the the built and natural environment.
Special features regarding the international orientationAs a consecutive course of study (Bachelor's/Master's degree course in Architecture), the degree course with five years of standard study complies with the Directive on professional qualifications 2005/36/EC and also the requirements of the international UNESCO/UIA Charter. Following the establishment of the Department of International Town Planning, this topic is included right from the Bachelor's degree course as a compulsory subject. Furthermore, international course content, primarily in the form of design topics and seminars with a global background, is anchored in the teaching through international appointments and invitations to international visiting professors.
