The master's program in Architecture and Urban Planning leads to a master's degree which generally entitles the holder to be admitted to the chamber of architects, which is a prerequisite for practising as an independent licensed architect (freie*r Architekt*in). Master's graduates can also go on to pursue a doctoral degree (Promotion).
With their broad spectrum of expertise the institutes of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning introduce students to a wide range of topics. Flexibility and the ability to adjust to changing parameters are a fundamental aspect of this master's program. At the end of the master's program students are required to submit a master's thesis in which they demonstrate their ability to work autonomously, formulating independent answers to complex questions within a creative design process, and to respond sensitively to interrelated requirements.
The Faculty offers a master's degree program in architecture and urban planning, lasting four consecutive semesters, plus two international master's programs. We offer two further master's courses for individuals already working in a related field, where the studies will be pursued in parallel (berufsbegleitend):
Students who began their master's program before 1 October 2017 are subject to the Examination Regulations 2013. Students who began their master's program after 1 October 2017 are subject to the Examination Regulations 2017.
