Architecture – Green Building

Bachelor, full-time

Overview

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.

What you can offer

In addition to a solid foundation in mathematics (required as the basis of structural physics), you will ideally have well-developed spatial perception abilities and an interest in design. You are creative with the drawing ability to draft your innovative ideas. You enjoy working with computer programs that can calculate, accurately draw, animate and render your designs. To work as part of a project team, you will need a talent for coordination.

What we offer you

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.

What makes this degree program special

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.


What you will learn in this degree program

  • 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.

How you benefit

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.

  • Engineering and architect's offices
  • The construction industry and building trade
  • Consulting firms
  • Public and private property developers
  • Building inspection authorities and public administration bodies
  • Real estate services
  • Construction departments of private clients (chain stores, insurance companies, banks)
