  • Special features regarding teaching
    The teaching is focused on the current discourse in architecture and research processes. It is organised on an interdisciplinary basis and takes into account the needs of life-long learning. This also includes the promotion of key qualifications (creativity, methodological skills, social and cross-cultural skills, ethics). This enables students to constructively transfer their knowledge and experience into new social, academic and professional contexts. Studios, research groups and interdisciplinary forums offer effective, practical learning methods.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    An important step has been taken towards internationalisation, based on supranational standards in architect training. With the re-accreditation in 2013, key course content was made compatible with the curricula of German and foreign university architecture schools. There are institutional exchange programmes for students, teaching staff and researchers. A whole series of important research projects have international links (Solar Energy in Urban Planning, Zero Energy Buildings, etc.). We have enjoyed success as participants in the Solar Decathlon Europe.

  • Equipment of the work places
    In spring 2017, a new building was handed over to the faculty as the "Haus der Studierenden" (Students' House). In addition to a new lecture theatre and exhibition areas, approx. 800 m² of space is designated for fixed or temporary workstations for the st
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Research has been intensified in recent years. It has generated important inspiration for the faculty. The focus is on "Sustainable Building and Building Performance" and "Real Estate Management and Project Development" with a strong interdisciplinary net
  • Other special features
    The possibility of profile building in the Master's degree course specifically supports student's development in their individual talents. However, a conscious decision was made not to depart from the need for an architecture course to be general. Interfaces to civil engineering are cultivated. The department is visibly involved in the city and region (district management, Junior Uni, Utopia Stadt, etc.) and students are heavily involved or are players themselves.
