Curriculum Structure

The curriculum covers the general capabilities associated with the technical-scientific subjects. In-depth technical and specialised skills are imparted on the basis of the said general capabilities. The interconnected and all-inclusive approach links the following aspects:

  • Life-cycle of a building
  • Energy-efficiency and interconnected building technology
  • The building in its surroundings


The first academic year - Basic principles

In addition to covering the initial project work related to the field of smart buildings, the first academic year also imparts basic knowledge in the fields associated with the general technical skills in question, the systematic competencies and the socio-communicative competencies.

Natural sciences and engineering:
E.g. mathematics, physics, statics and constructional physics

Structural engineering and building technology:
E.g. Basic knowledge about the fields associated with structural engineering, the analysis of materials, construction and architecture, the basic principles of constructional planning, the principles of ecological and sustainable construction

Design & blueprint:
E.g. standardised representation of components and component groups in design drawings, detection and representation of issues relating to three-dimensional architecture or abilities in the fields associated with tendering, time management and project management


The second academic year - Specialisation

In the second academic year, you can choose one of the following two specialisations: "Smart Building Systems" and "Smart Building Constructions". Furthermore, when it comes to the following fields, you will deepen your abilities and technical skills and build on the basic principles that you were introduced to during the first academic year:

Energy technology and control engineering:
E.g. Computer systems and networks, concrete IT-related problems, basic principles of energy technology and the production of energy in a manner that takes efficiency and the conservation of resources into consideration, control engineering and the relationships between smart grids and smart buildings

Structural engineering and building technology:
E.g. Climate change and its causes, energy industry, assessment of innovative technologies, overview of the automation systems used in buildings, the planning processes used for heating and ventilation systems, the process associated with sanitary planning, air-conditioning

The third academic year - Professionalisation

The third academic year is geared towards laying the groundwork for an eventual career track and preparing for the master's course that may be taken up after the bachelor's programme has been completed. The technical expertise that has been acquired complements the students' professional skills. You professionalise the knowledge that you have acquired in your chosen field of specialisation (smart building systems or smart building constructions). In both specialisations, you become familiar with complete solutions for building-systems and learn to develop, quote and implement the process in which the building is constructed. Furthermore, you can, within the framework of the academic programme, acquire certificates that relate to the latest certification systems (e.g. the certificates possessed by energy advisers).

Smart skills - Additional skills

The process by which the students acquire socio-economic and economic abilities and project management skills is a cumulative process that spans the entire duration of study (six semesters). In case of the domains in question, you develop your individual social and communication-related skills, learn how to use techniques and instruments in a targeted manner to write bachelor theses and research papers, and become familiar with new methods and techniques which aim to promote the creation of creative and divergent intellectual approaches.
