What makes this study programme special?

Thanks to co-operation with other study programmes, such as architecture, you will be provided with a broad and in-depth specialist knowledge. You will study in small groups and work on practical tasks.

This will enable you to acquire skills and competences that you can use directly in your job. With applied research in laboratories and workshops you combine theory and practice. In addition, we prepare you intensively for an international working environment by offering international workshops and excursions.
