Special features regarding teaching

The focus of the teaching is on design. The particularly spacious facilities of the FB15 building mean that it is open round the clock to enable student work to be carried out there as much as possible (in self-managed work rooms) and so with direct communication. The facilities are rounded off by an in-house IT department with its own print workshop, a professionally managed modelling workshop that is accessible to students, and an extensive library. Practice-related projects (e.g. planning and construction of innovative solar homes) are conducted on a regular basis.

Special features regarding the international orientation

The international focus is still being developed. Efforts are under way to extend the BSc programme to eight semesters with a one-year foreign study programme on request (Bachelor +) in addition to the existing individual options. The department has been successfully involved in international student competitions for many years (e.g. Solar Decathlon, Designing Resilience competition Singapore).

Support for founders

‘HIGHEST’ – the TU Darmstadt innovation and start-up centre located at TUDa – offers excellent support for founders of start-ups.

Other special features

The building is open 24/7/365 and is a kind of "home" for the students. This very much helps students identify with their studies. Everything is very close and personal, because the entire administration of services, including advice services etc. are all in the same building. Most of the students and teaching staff know each other personally.
