The Institute of Architecture & Management, which belongs to the Department of Building, Energy & Society, focuses on an all-round approach to architectural processes – from design through to project management. There is a strong emphasis on the practice-based teaching of architectural planning and the development of innovative solutions within modern architectural practice.
In addition to the Master’s degree programme in Architecture, the Institute also has a dedicated R&D Centre, which carries out specialised studies and research projects.
Plans are also currently underway for the introduction of a Master’s course in Building Information Modelling, which highlights the all-round approach of the Institute. Participants will learn about state-of-the-art methods and work forms designed to meet the high demands placed on the architecture, design and construction of buildings.
The Timber Academy, established as a forum for training and further education in cooperation with proHolz Steiermark, completes the range of learning opportunities offered by the Institute to students, graduates and professionals working in the field.
