Bachelor of Education Building Technology

Commercial and technical training

The Department of Architecture at TU Darmstadt offers commercial and technical training in the subject of “building technology” for the purpose of teaching students at vocational schools.
After successfully completing the examinations for the Bachelor of Education course, TU Darmstadt awards the academic degree “Bachelor of Education”. The student is then eligible to complete a subsequent “Master of Education” degree. However, building technology is only offered as an B.Ed. degree.
Please note that the building technology course is based in the Department of Architecture. This means that fewer technical or mathematical courses are offered to students than artistic and creative courses.
Here is an introduction to the range of courses available. (opens in new tab)

In the subsequent “Master of Education” degree, students are required to select a second teaching subject (general education subject). Here is a list of the possible subject combinations. Based on the currently available information, there are very good career opportunities (in public service) in this profession.

Teaching methodology for building technology – practical studies and technical teaching in schools

Many courses deal with issues in the areas of architecture and building technology and then investigate how they can be taught to the target group of pupils in professional schools. Since the winter semester 2011-12, three of the four modules in the area of technical education are offered by one professor (Prof. Tenberg) in FB 03 Humanities:
