The Faculty of Architecture and Design offers 9 programmes combining all building core competences all in one place.

Facilities and Rooms
Very well equipped facilities offer optimal conditions for studying on a contemporary level: computer rooms, workshops for scale models and prototypes in all relevant material classes, 3D lab incl. laser cutter, various measuring and laboratory equipment, a photo studio and a light laboratory with an ‘artificial sky’. Here you can work directly on your projects, find exchange and mutual support. We have our own print service directly in-house letting you print plans at cost. With the completion of Building 4 work rooms and studios will be available to all degree programmes, thus significantly improving the previous space available. The building is close to completion and is planned to be operational in compliance with hygiene regulations by the 2020/21 winter semester.  Find the facilities here

Our faculty’s Professors have many years of practical experience in renowned architecture and planning offices or companies in the construction and design industry. In addition to their professorship the majority of them are constantly working in the field – this benefits you directly. For many topics, outstanding and very committed specialists from the professional world provide support in the form of teaching assignments.

Small Semester SubgroupsPersonal Support
Semester subgroups support solidarity among the students; many exercises and projects are worked on in small groups. This ensures intensive personal support from our professors and lecturers. There is also extensive cooperation with other disciplines. In addition, a team of academic staff is available to answer questions and provide advice.

Gaining Experience abroad
The partnership with around 80 universities worldwide offers our students the opportunity to gain a wide range of professional and cultural experience during a semester abroad.

Practical Orientation - it’s what makes us special
A strong reference to the real-world application of planning and building as well as integrative forms of teaching, many in an interdisciplinary and project-oriented form, are the University of Applied Sciences’ standout feature. Close connection to implementation and practical relevance are always the focus. What you learn here can be immediately applied in professional practice right after completing the programme. This keeps our graduates in great demand in the working environment.
