  • Special features regarding teaching
    The integrated teaching of the project-based architecture courses links the interrelations of individual aspects, such as building theory, architectural theory and history, building construction and structural theory with the creative process of architectural design and the conceptual handling of architectural heritage. The interaction of usage requirements and the impact of the built environment is the focus of teaching and research. The focus is on historical and technical backgrounds, and contextual and artistic aspects of contemporary architecture.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Through excursions, of which at least one is offered abroad per semester, students have the opportunity to gain international experience through short stays abroad. Academic exchange and international courses are also an important aspect. As a result, there is a vibrant exchange with existing partner universities, but also higher education institutions that offer interesting options. Through the integration of mobility windows and maintaining a high level of flexibility when transferring credits acquired abroad strengthens the international profile.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Marseille, Marseille, Frankreich; University of Thessaly, Volos, Griechenland; Università degli Studi di Udine, Udine, Italien; German Jordanian University, Amman, Jordanien; University of Split, Split, Kroatien; University of Malta, Msida, Malte; Namibia University of Science and Technology, Windhoek, Namibia; Wroclaw Technical University, Wroclaw, Polen Universidade de Lisboa, Lisboa, Portugal; Universidad de Alicante, Alicante, Spanien
  • Equipment of the work places
    Students in their final semesters are assigned workstations (work rooms: 53), which are accessible 24/7. All other seminar rooms, unless otherwise occupied, are open for student work into the evening.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    In addition to the established laboratory for construction research and the materials testing institute, the department works on a broad spectrum of applied research projects (R&D). These are integrated into the university's strategy through the high-profile SU-Metropol (Sustainability in Metropolitan Areas) key research area. Support of transregional companies and communities ensures a direct practical relevance. Research activities in the field of heritage management enhance the profile of the department via the degree course in building heritage.
  • Other special features
    The department is strongly integrated into the booming region of the Rhine-Main metropolis and benefits from higher-level organisations such as the German Architecture Museum and a lively specialist discourse between the network of neighbouring universities.
