Programme

The Bachelor programme as the first stage in our Bachelor-Master-System in Architecture begins in the winter and summer semester. The period of studies is six semesters including the Bachelor thesis.

Profile | Practice

Our Bachelor-Master-System is the further development of the traditional architectural education at the HFT Stuttgart. Complex requirements are made of architecture, from the relation to the historical and social environment, to functionality, design and economy right up to the appropriateness of the materials used. The quality of architecture is measured by the holistic and sustainable consideration of all these requirements. Our Bachelor programme therefore teaches you contemporary principles and methods. Clear evaluations standards allow you to work independently. The strong relation to the practice of planning and construction as well as the generalistic orientation of all components allows you a flexible further professional path after completion of your degree.

Structure | Modules

The Bachelor's course is modularised. The focuses of the modules are technical, artistic and organisational basic competences. The crucial features are therefore our integrated projects, which teach you an interdisciplinary working method and team skills. These are precisely the contemporary principles and methods that you can no longer be without in your daily work. You can determine part of your study programme yourself with our major subjects in the 3rd and 4th semester. Further special features of our Bachelor degree are individual supervision, close collaboration with architectural offices, the possibility of studying at one of our partner universities abroad for a semester or learning the desired foreign language directly at the HFT. Obligatory excursions enable you to study contemporary architecture and classics of construction history on location and get to know other forms of urban life in Germany and abroad.

Degree | Bachelor of Arts

Our Bachelor's course is the first section of the consecutive Bachelor-Master degree according to the guidelines of the UIA (Union Internationale des Architectes). On successful completion you will be awarded the title Bachelor of Arts (B.A. architecture). This gives you the opportunity to go directly into the profession or to go on to a Master's course.
The Faculty of Architecture and Design offers you four possibilities here:

  • Architecture
  • International Interior Architectural Design [IMIAD]
  • International Project Management
  • Urban Planning.

The Bachelor's degree also allows access to higher service.
