Master theses

The Master’s thesis represents the conclusion of the architecture program. Each semester, three design topics are published by alternating design institutes: Two in structural engineering, one in urban planning. Students also have the opportunity to submit a free master's thesis with a self-imposed task.

The students work on the task of the thesis in a competition-like procedure within a period of 14 weeks. The thesis is handed in by presenting it in person to the so-called “committee of five”. Their grade recommendations are then discussed in the so-called “large commission”. In this way, the comparability of the evaluations is ensured. Both commissions are composed of professors, representatives of the academic staff and students.

On the following pages you will find selected master theses of the past semesters.
