Would you like to sharpen and deepen your design skills? Do you want to determine the content of your architecture studies yourself? Here you can develop innovative building types and construction methods! Or they can contribute to concepts for the city of the future!
With the decision to study architecture at TU Braunschweig you get the opportunity to learn, experiment and develop at a renowned university. Architecture is never just a solution to a given problem; it always consists of a variety of possibilities.
Developing standards for quality
The Master’s degree course in Architecture, which grew out of the profile of the Braunschweig School, focuses on design-related topics; the central content of the course is the creative synthesis of all core subjects in design and construction. During your studies you will learn to analyse phenomena of architecture and the city, to reflect critically and to design architectural spaces appropriately in terms of shape and atmosphere as well as construction and function. In doing so, you will benefit from the expertise of professors who, with their respective profiles, are working successfully in professional practice and play a leading role in one of the research priorities of TU Braunschweig, the “City of the Future. ”
Trained holistically, you will acquire all the knowledge and skills needed to help shaping our built environment. At the same time, you develop an awareness of the responsibility that is entrusted to you as an architect.
Think tank and creative cocoon
A special facility for architecture students at TU Braunschweig are the design studios. Students can apply for one of the more than 300 studio spaces.
These student workspaces play an important role in determining the quality of architectural studies. The strength of the studios lies in the mutual support and criticism of the students during their drafts and exercises, but also in the communal cooperation in busy phases. Ideally, a collaborative, creative atmosphere develops here.
The stimulation and exchange of ideas with fellow students is a unique experience in the course of studies and complements the teaching of lecturers.
