To support the holistic educational aim of artistic and technically skilled graduates, this report unites technical disciplines embedded in the curriculum into a compulsory document/ report.
It is coordinated with the lecturers of the technical subjects that are supporting it by iterative consultations. Intensive research, experiments on material or processing level, simulations, cooperation with industries, innovative interpretation of taught content and tools, are just some examples how students prove their technical skills applied to the design process of their individual project.


    • Identify the potential of emerging technologies
    • Critically assess their impact on architectural design, manufacturing and construction
    • Understand their interdependence and sequencing
    • Develop a substantial knowledge base through critical case studies of contemporary fabrication processes, constructed artefacts and buildings.
    • Involve high levels of critical reflection through case studies, material experiments and extensive research and consultation.
    • Communicate and articulate ideas and information fluently in English language and work comprehensively in visual, oral and written forms.
    • Make formal presentations about specialist topics to informed and general/ community audiences.
    • Show confidence in analysing case studies and the ability to infer principles and motivations.
    • Apply a variety of design- and research methods and visualisation techniques
    • Have knowledge of scientific or artistic methods within an interdisciplinary context
    • Explain competently, discuss and critique own work through oral presentations, writing or visual communication
    • Demonstrate the ability to work with other students for assignments, exercises, experiments, presentations etc.
    • Explain competently, discuss and critique own design production and the theoretical context.
