Program Overview

Program Description:
Approach Digital technologies altered the field of architecture and the architectural profession significantly – from design to production. Against this background the study program incorporates the professional qualities of higher architectural education as well as the theoretic and operative aspects of information technology. To convey further knowledge of these technologies is the main goal of the master´s curriculum. The study is based on the following principles: Computer-aided methods as cross-linking of design, construction and fabrication process Inter- and transdisciplinary exchange Full-time study related to practice Synergy and additional benefit out of the connection between university, companies and external professionals Integration of compact workshops and symposia Target group The three-semester Master program addresses graduates of Architecture, Interior and Product Design, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, as well as Information Technology and related studies. Cooperative projects, symposia and master theses serve as a platform for collaborations with the building industry, software suppliers, other universities and architectural offices.

The post-graduate Master program focuses on digital design methods and construction technologies in Architecture, Engineering and Design. The Curriculum provides scientific and practical foundation and gives an overview of latest developments in Computational Design and Construction.

Master degree - Worldwide acknowledgement The Master program leads to the qualification of the worldwide acknowledged academic degree: Master of Engineering (M. Eng.). Employment in engineering or design oriented areas is possible. The degree entitles to a PhD degree study and opens the admission to higher public service. Career opportunities and job profiles The Master program opens up various possibilities for a professional development, e. g. following occupational areas: Employment in the area of Architecture, Buildng Construction, Engineering, Interior and Product Design Specialization and consultancy in the field of Computational Design and Construction Admission to PhD study or employment in engineering research Employment in higher public service
Setting Description:
Course content and schedule The Master program has a modular basis and comprises a study period of three semesters. The module’s contents are oriented toward integrated learning assignments which are directed by lecturers of Detmolder Schule and external experts. The contents are provided via different teaching methods like lectures, seminars, projects and internships. The self-study is assisted intensively during the attendance period and further supported through specific course materials and internal e-learning offerings. The post-graduate study concludes with the master thesis in the third semester. The aim is to conduct the thesis with the highest possible relation to practice and multidisciplinarity together with cooperation partners, an engineering company, an authority or another department of the Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe. The extent ranges from a scientific development up to a subject-specific product development and reflects the diversity of individual specialization
