Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

Master of Integrated Design

This four-semester Master’s program focuses on understanding the latest technological developments. Students can choose to specialize in Computational Design or Facade Design.

Globalization and the internationalization of the economy as a whole, and the construction industry in particular, and stricter local regulations are influencing the requirements placed on buildings and construction projects, and influencing construction planning as well. In addition, developing digital technologies are changing the construction industry over the long term - from design through to planning and manufacturing as well as implementation, resulting in all new career paths. Because of this, in addition to traditional design and planning methods, this Master’s program also teaches theoretical and practical knowledge on digital analysis, design, planning and production methods, and provides a detailed overview of the latest technological developments. The degree program integrates operational aspects of information technology, construction product development and academic work.


Graduates will be qualified to work in either private industry or in public sector positions. This includes positions at architectural firms, engineering and planning companies, as well as in production industry companies, research institutions, or at universities.

In conjunction with a Bachelor’s program in Architecture of six semesters or more, this degree program provides students with an internationally recognized professional qualification as an Architect.
