Special features regarding teachingThe 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 orientationAn 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.
Common partner universities for exchangePolitecnico di Milano, Mailand, Italien; Universidade de Valladolid, Valladolid, Spanien; Politechnika Gdanska ul., Danzig, Polen; Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Türkei; ICSTE-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa, Lissabon, Portugal

Other special featuresThe 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.
