Master Architecture, Building and Planning

Interdisciplinarity is the key characteristic of the master’s degree program in Architecture, Building and Planning. Based on your own discipline, you will learn to understand the problems of other disciplines. This will be important in your future career because the work of a small architectural bureau cannot be compared to that of large project developers. Through the project driven education, you will develop a design-oriented approach that is based on independent analytical ability, synthesis skills and the many opportunities offered by information technology. In addition to communication skills and presentation techniques, a scientific approach and a good measure of relativity are essentials in the design process.

Final qualifications of the degree program

A Master of Science graduate of the degree program ABP:

  • is qualified to degree level within the domain of ‘science engineering & technology’,
  • is competent in the relevant domain-specific discipline(s), namely Architecture, Building and Planning,
  • is able to conduct research and design independently,
  • has the ability and attitude to include other disciplines in their research, where necessary,
  • has a scientific approach to complex problems and ideas,
  • possesses intellectual skills that enable them to reflect critically, reason and form opinions,
  • has the ability to communicate the results of their learning, thinking and decision-making processes at an international level,
  • is aware of the temporal and social context of science and technology (comprehension and analysis) and can integrate this context in their scientific work,
  • in addition to a recognizable domain-specific profile, possesses a sufficiently broad basis to be able to work in an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary context. In this context, multidisciplinary means being focused on other relevant disciplines needed to solve the design or research problem in question,
  • has the ability and attitude to seek new potential applications, taking the social context into consideration.
