The Master's Degree in Architecture (Master of Arts) at the TU München qualifies students both in the general and the specific competencies of the study areas, and in methodological skills as well as social and interpersonal skills. The graduates of all four study areas will be equally able to visualize and pre-sent their created work. They are specifically able to use a wide variety of digital and analogue visualization methods, including modeling techniques acquired within the project work. They will have achieved conviction and confidence in the elucidation and justification of their own design work. They will also have a thoroughgoing knowledge of construction and architectural history and theory of architecture, which for the graduates of the Master’s programs provide the guiding principles for design work.
Additionally, students will have at their disposal the social and interpersonal skills that are indispensible in the working environment of the architectural profession. Following their studies, they will be able to collaborate on complex projects cooperatively and productively as a team and they will have been trained to hold their own in conflicts between stakeholders.
Through methodological and professional specialization on the Master’s program, together with the project work specifically designed to this end, they will also be capable of handling complex design and construction projects independently and without guidance and to take responsibility whether within a team or working alone. They will be able to work on projects in a sustained and pro-active way, and to be aware of their own strengths and weaknesses in order to achieve set targets in an optimal manner.
Through its interdisciplinary and practical, but also research-oriented approach, it will be possible for graduates not only to adhere to a prescribed workflow, but also to develop new solutions and methods and thus excel as pioneers of the architectural methodologies of the future.
