Learning outcomes:
Impart basic skills / Construction management and climate-friendly construction as important technical disciplines / In the final year of the Bachelor´s program, both of these topics will be explored.
Construction Management:
The basics of preparing and carrying out construction will prepare students for the obligations of an architect. Included are instruments of construction management used in planning and realization, understanding the basics of building law, as well as organizing architectural work as a whole.
Eco-Friendly Construction 1:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with energy-optimized building design. The goal is to convey the interdisciplinary relationships between design, construction and resource-friendly building services engineering.
Students will be able to integrate, deepen and implement design, construction and building technology aspects in their entirety and, where necessary, correct conceptual mistakes.
