The degree program
The guiding idea in the development of the bachelor’s program is the alignment with the “traditional” profession of an architect. The goal of the degree program is to prepare for the professional tasks as an architect, i.e. to be able to take over the design-related, technical, economic, ecological and social planning of buildings. Creative, competent and critically thinking skilled professionals should be trained for these tasks. The qualification goals in terms of content are aimed at providing a generalist architectural education.
The bachelor's program offers broad basic and specialist knowledge for self-employed professional activity. Integral, holistic planning and design are important in the professional field of the architects. For example, the design of a building and the concept of the technical system impact the running costs for energy and maintenance. Ecological concepts directly influence the architecture.
Only if architects are competent in the field of integrated planning, have mastered interdisciplinary work and are able to cooperate will they be able to maintain or develop their roles as the main responsible parties in the process of planning and constructing buildings. The corresponding requirements and an understanding of integral, interdisciplinary planning can also be applied to the design of city quarters or urban renewal. Developing theses competences is important to us.
Proof of an 8-week construction site internship must be submitted no later than at the start of the 3rd semester. The focus of the basic internship is on the construction industry.
A procedure for determination of qualification has been in place since winter semester 2019/2020. Passing this procedure is a mandatory admission requirement. You can find information about the procedure at www.architektur.uni-siegen.de.
In order to acquire the protected professional title of architect, registration with the Chambers of Architects is required. According to the requirements of the Architects’ Directive and the requirements of the Federal Chambers of Architects, the standard period of study currently must be at least 8 semesters. Accordingly, successfully completing a consecutive master's degree program following the 6-semester bachelor's program is required in order to apply for entry in the list of architects. The entry requirements are regulated in the building chamber laws of the individual federal states.
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module handbooks/internship regulations
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
