With 1,500 students, around 200 scientists and 28 professorships, the Department of Architecture at the TUM School of Engineering and Design (ED) is pursuing a research-oriented teaching approach in cooperation with public organizations and companies — embedded in the excellent living and research environment of the greater Munich area.
Our central task is to sustainably improve teaching and research in our field and to develop strategies for the transformation of our built environment. Starting from the core activity of designing, we synthesize, contextualize and design complex spatial solutions. Our vision is to successfully integrate design practice into research.
Key topic at the Department Architecture
"[...] climate change, resource responsibility, the different focus areas of our Department try to face these urgent problems from different perspectives. The core discipline of architectural design does not only try to design new forms of sustainable architecture, they also try to get to the source of the problems building materials sustainability in buildings itself." Department Head Prof. Regine Keller presents the Department Architecture, part of the TUM School of Engineering and Design at Technical University of Munich.
