Course structure

In the first year, you take a number of basic courses to develop your basic knowledge and lay the foundation for your growth as an engineer. In the second year, you start to specialize in specific architectural disciplines. You will also learn to work effectively in groups with team members from different disciplines to achieve optimal results. 

Your third year is focused on your final project, which is an extension of the projects in the construction, design and process domain. It is a chance to show that you can independently research an architectural project in a methodological way, then develop and present a design based on given criteria using your own insights. 

The themes for these projects are oriented towards connecting specialties within our Architecture, Building and Planning (ABP) and Construction Management and Engineering (CME) master’s programs. They are offered through the department’s four research programs, with each research program offering a maximum of two projects per year.
