Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.)


Architects are active in the field of architectural culture and have a responsibility to society, their clients and to the environment. Architects plan building works; their objective is the technical, environmental, and social planning and design of buildings. After the bachelor’s degree programme, graduates will develop ideas and designs and plan their execution and implementation in structural and spatial form in cooperation with the responsible architect. The bachelor’s degree programme at the BTU provides the specific skills required to work at the highest level in architectural firms.
