Bachelor

Architecture – Green Building

Full-time

When you join the Architecture - Green Building program, you are choosing an architectural course devoted to making our environment more livable. Aside from design and planning, you will learn a great deal about the construction of buildings. The focus on future-proof building will qualify you to design structures that are sustainable and energy-producing, and to account for lifecycles even at the planning phase. EU Directive EPBD 2010 on the Energy Performance of Buildings is raising the demand for experts in green building by obliging member states to construct only zero-energy buildings from 2020.

    The admission procedure consists of four parts (EDP test, drawing part, admission interview, portfolio folder) and takes place at the FH Campus Wien.

    • Aim
      The aim of the admissions process is to offer a place to those persons who complete the multi-stage admissions procedure with the best results. It leads to a ranking of the applicants. The test methods are based on the skills required for the desired profession.
    • Procedure
      The computer test includes tasks from logic, general knowledge, spatial awareness, English and German. In the drawing section, one or more objects must be reproduced in perspective. Afterwards, the applicants have an interview, which gives a first impression of their personal aptitude.

      Furthermore, a portfolio folder (Details Portfoliomappe, content only available in German, PDF 260 KB) has to be prepared, which is mandatory to bring along to the admission procedure. If you need support in the preparation and/or creation of your portfolio, we recommend that you participate in the portfolio course (Details Portfolio Course, content only available in German PDF 277 KB). Please note that it is not possible to participate in the admission procedure WITHOUT a portfolio.

      Each of these four parts is awarded points. The final ranking results from the total number of these points.

    • Criteria
      The criteria leading to admission are exclusively performance-related. The geographical origin of the applicant has no influence on the admission decision. The admission requirements must be fulfilled. The final ranking of applicants is determined after completion of the above-mentioned admission procedure.

    The Admissions Committee, which also includes the Head of the degree program and the Lecturers' Association, allocates the study places on the basis of the ranking. The overall process as well as all evaluations of the admission procedure are documented in a comprehensible manner. You will be notified latest at the end of July 2023 whether we are able to offer you a place in the degree program, whether you have been placed on the waiting list or whether you have not passed the admission procedure.

    Admission procedure
    You will receive an invitation to the admissions procedure after positive examination of all relevant documents. You will receive the exact date and schedule for the admission interviews approximately one week before the assigned date. Depending on the number of applicants, additional admission dates may be scheduled.

    • Wednesday, 3rd May 2023
    • Wednesday, 31st May 2023
    • Wednesday, 14th June 2023
    • Wednesday, 5th July 2023

    The dates are assigned and cannot be freely chosen.

    Please note that there will be a team building workshop for our freshmen in the last week of August. Participation is mandatory, detailed information will follow in due time.


    During the studies

    In the 20 years and more that FH Campus Wien has been running civil engineering programs, the university of applied sciences has built up a wealth of expertise and a broad network that offers you numerous possibilities during your program, when seeking an internship and when embarking on a career. Aside from architect's offices, this network includes reputable construction firms such as STRABAG SE, which cooperates with FH Campus Wien in the further education of its staff and other areas. You will also benefit from the knowledge you acquire in R&D projects. Aside from well-founded theory, practical relevance is our top priority. For this reason the program offers you a chance to apply yourself to a large-scale, future-focused project. One course invites you to develop ideas for expanding Altes Landgut, our main site in the new Verteilerkreis district of the city. There is a real chance that your ideas will be transformed into reality within a few years. We also offer regular training through our series of seminars dealing with selected topics from the construction business. Practical relevance is also guaranteed at our Campus Lecture evenings, which are open to all and feature contributions from prominent experts.

    This program is all about the future of architecture. At present, buildings account for some 40 percent of total energy consumption. As a graduate of the program, your aim will be to change this situation as creatively as possible. In contrast to the university's traditional architecture course, this practical Bachelor program enables you to specialize in structural engineering projects involving buildings utilized for residential and commercial purposes.

    Rather than focus on artistic and historical aspects, you will focus on the issue of sustainability; even at the design and planning stage, you will consider the lifecycle of a structure and apply long-term thinking to its construction. This program will give you a high level of professional expertise in both engineering and project management. Graduates of the Bachelor's and Master's Degree Program Architecture - Green Building at FH Campus Wien, as well as university graduates, have the opportunity to use the professional title of “Architect” in the future.

    • Your field of study will cover the full spectrum of design, planning and construction: principles of green building, location-specific construction, drafting, architectural rendering, architectural theory, structural design, building climate control, building services, law and construction economics. The main objective is to create buildings that are innovative, resource-conserving and energy-efficient while meeting high aesthetic standards.

      Sustainable means:
      • Economical: You will optimize costs, taking into consideration not just production costs but also those arising throughout the existence of a structure and ultimately the disposal costs (lifecycle costing).
      • Environmentally sound: Throughout the lifecycle, you will pursue resource-friendly solutions (ecological footprint), and
      • Social: You will ensure the highest satisfaction levels with the building projects you implement, not only from users but also observers (blue building).
    • During the program you will complete wide-ranging internships in which you apply the specific theoretical knowledge you have acquired.

    In the center of the work free space planning is the mediation between landscape architectural planning and action. At the beginning is the clarification of key terms. The landscape as the actual field of action, landscape architecture rather than man-made structures, which have always been transformed. In the city, as well as, in the country, and in between. Types of open spaces and the degree of public opinion contribute to the debate. The next focus is the introduction to the landscape architectonic design. Basics of space education are discussed, as well as the shape of the elements of the free space. Then contemporary projects will be presented and analyzed together.

    After graduation

    As a graduate of this program, a wide range of professional fields and career opportunities are open to you. Find out where your path can lead you.

    Demand for green building experts is rising as buildings are required to meet ever more stringent environmental standards. EU Directive EPBD 2010 on the Energy Performance of Buildings has accelerated the trend by obliging member states to construct only zero-energy buildings from 2020. New buildings will have to be almost energy self-sufficient in the way they are built and operated through high energy efficiency standards and renewable sources of energy. This target will apply to public sector buildings as early as 2018. As a graduate of the program, you will be equipped to meet that challenge. In your capacity as an expert, you will be qualified to pursue a broad range of creative duties for engineering and architect's offices, the construction industry and building trade, consulting firms, private property developers, public contract awarders and supervisory authorities. You can use the job title of “Architect” after completing your Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Architecture - Green Building at FH Campus Wien once you have three years of practical experience and have successfully passed the civil engineering exam.
