Program Details

Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences invites applications for M.Sc. in Advanced Architecture – From Urban Design to Building Construction. The study programme concentrates on the combination of design and construction. “Advanced Architecture“ means designing and constructing on all scales, from urban contexts to single details. Advanced, future-oriented concepts are developed and addressed in study projects and office internships as well as with the FFin (the Frankfurt University research institute) and in close collaboration with our cooperation partners from the construction sector.

Students gain broad knowledge of design and construction through a combination of lecture series and modules that discuss design and construction in the areas of urban design, design of buildings in existing contexts and built environments, and design of new buildings. These topics are directly related to internationally oriented projects and a series of elective modules, giving students the chance to focus on their individual interests, which may then become the main focus of their Master’s theses. Moreover, 30 ECTS can be chosen from the German Master’s degree course “Design and Construction“ (“Entwurf und Konstruktion”).

By intensively studying several contexts from a global, diversity oriented, and multicultural point of view, students develop an ability to independently translate any abstract design into a concrete implementation of material and construction. They will be able to combine professional, practical, technical, economic, ecological, and social aspects while, at the same time, taking varied cultural, historical, and climatic situations into consideration.

In the fourth semester, students write their Master’s theses.

The modules complement each other and are linked to one another, for instance, through combined projects, excursions, lectures, conferences, and e-learning. The integrated, international structure of the degree course offers students the chance to have a unique study experience in the future-oriented metropolis of Frankfurt.

There are NO tuition fees for the program.
