This two-year program comprises the following elements:
- Core courses in the AUDE track (15 ECTS)
- Electives in the AUDE track (30 ECTS)
- Free electives from the APB or other TU/e departments (30 ECTS)
- Graduation project (45 ECTS)
Thesis projects are directly related to the department’s research activities. As a built environment’s physical lifespan is typically longer than its economic lifespan, a key area of interest is the development of sustainable, flexible, environmentally-friendly, and safe buildings and installations.
Your research takes place within one of the following programs:
- Building Physics and Services
- Design and Decision Support Systems
- Structural Design
- Architecture of the Living City and Urbanisms
