is the three-dimensional expression of a society. Accordingly, as mentioned in the preamble, the programme is geared toward
the acquisition of technical and theoretical knowledge in connection with the development of design ideas. However, it also
gives students an awareness of the fact that architecture is part of culture and that they bear a responsibility with regard
to the given tasks. By critically reflecting on “practical necessities” and standardised procedures, their specific expertise
regarding space and organisation enables them to devise solutions to current and, above all, future problems and to meet the
demands of society.
This is possible thanks to an educational training that encourages collaboration and imparts
to the students the necessary tools and platforms for communication. Work in the design studios trains an openness between
various disciplines, and the master programme intensifies this close interaction all the more as it is now possible to increase
the intensity of studies on the structure and the solving of tasks to an advanced level. For admission,
proof of successful completion of a bachelor degree in architecture must be provided.

The field of activity that the students will be prepared for and for
which the master thesis project qualifies them is in a perpetual state of flux, one that has been rapidly accelerating, above
all, since the advent of digital data processing and the virtualisation of architecture - and it will only continue to increase
Graduates possess a high level of flexibility with which to adapt to new situations and have firm command
over the latest technologies and tools. This prepares them for all architectural tasks, from spatial planning to interior
design, and gives them the requisite organisational skills needed to tackle an increasingly complex production process. In
view of globalisation and the predominance of economic calculation, prospective planning becomes particularly important. Graduates
have been trained to think strategically, allowing them to anticipate future scenarios so as to react to their complexity
with commensurate solutions.
