With the successful completion of this subject you will reach the second professional qualification level to work in the professional field of architects. This opens the way for you to a freelance, responsible position. With the master's degree in architecture from the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, you can set up as an architect throughout Europe (for more information, see notification ). In addition to the research-oriented professional training, communication and presentation tools are also taught as part of the design work in order to optimally prepare you for the job market.
The very complex and varied training in the consecutive Master’s degree in Architecture also enables you to take up further and in-depth studies as well as academic qualifications such as doctorate and Ph.D.
The standard period of study for the Master’s degree in Architecture is four semesters. The coursework and examinations to be performed are regulated in the curriculum and in the catalog of services in the study and examination regulations for the Architecture Master’s degree.
In addition to drafts, lectures and specialist seminars, the course includes the final master’s thesis and is divided into two module complexes:
a) 70 percent of the design and project-oriented training takes place in the project modules, which consist of a current design topic and design-related accompanying events. One project module must be taken per semester and the final master’s module (master’s thesis) in the 4th semester.
b) The second module complex consists of courses in which in-depth theoretical, historical, technical, constructive and design knowledge is imparted. This complex of modules is divided into compulsory, compulsory elective and elective areas, in which you can choose from a large number of courses.
The project modules (design plus accompanying events) are offered every semester as a joint project between various professorships. This enables a complex task to be viewed from different technical aspects. Intensive supervision is guaranteed by all professors involved. At the beginning of the semester, the various project modules and their accompanying events are presented individually by the professors. Compulsory elective modules partly build on one another and offer in-depth knowledge as well as subject-related knowledge transfer. In the area of ??elective modules, courses can be chosen across faculty and university boundaries.
Since the winter semester 2012/13 archineering can be chosen as a specialization in the master’s architecture . archineering understands civil engineering as an essential dimension of architectural composition and understands construction as a rich source for design topics.
Stays abroad are expressly desired and possible in the second or third semester. Every academic year, numerous exchange places are offered at well-known European and international universities. Achievements made abroad are recognized in accordance with the study and examination regulations. It should be noted that ten semesters of theoretical studies are compulsory for the recognition of the chamber qualification in non-European countries. If internships are carried out during this period of study, it must be clarified in advance whether these are recognized in accordance with the agreement of the Union Internationale des Architectes (UIA Professional Practice Commission).
The master's thesis is written in the fourth semester. After completing and defending the master’s thesis, the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism awards the academic degree “Master of Science” (M. Sc.).
