Special features regarding teaching

Architecture at the HCU has broad interdisciplinary links with the degree programmes Urban Planning, Metropolitan Culture, Civil Engineering, REAP, Urban Design and Geomatics as well as external cooperation partners. This promotes the transfer of knowledge and practical relevance, it provides the space to work on socially relevant and higher-level issues, and it promotes strategic thinking, reasoning and action.

(individual guidance, mediation and support). Regular summer schools in cooperation with internat. universities (Nantes, Gdansk).
