Its goal is to prepare students from different disciplines for the continuing advancement of technological and computational processes in architecture, as they merge the fields of design, engineering, construction, and natural sciences. Coupling an intensive, critical, and analytical approach to computational design, simulation, and fabrication, the ITECH program is focused on challenging the design space boundaries of current architectural and engineering practice.
What job prospects are available to me after graduation?
As the programme is merging the fields of design, engineering, construction and natural sciences with a strong focus on interdisciplinary skills, you will be qualified for a wide range of jobs.
The Integrative Technologies and Architectural Design Research program from University of Stuttgart investigates the realm of integrative technological advancements as novel potentials in architecture, engineering and construction and seeks to prepare students for the complex contemporary conditions found in the building industry by engaging them in cutting edge computational architectural design techniques, structural engineering and advanced fabrication and construction technologies.
ITECH graduates typically start working in architecture or engineering offices or in startups with a strong focus on computational design methods and/or digital manufacturing processes. A large percentage of the ITECH graduates also continue their research as PhD students or research associates at a university or research group and/or start teaching.
- The goal of the ITECH programme is to prepare a new generation of students from different disciplines for the continuing advancement of technological and computational processes in development of the built environment through merging the fields of design, engineering, construction and natural sciences.
- Combining an intensive, critical and analytical approach to computational design, simulation and fabrication processes, the ITECH programme is focusing on challenging the design space boundaries of current contemporary architectural and engineering practice.
- It seeks to provoke a re-examination of techniques, methods and theories of design in relation to the fields of engineering, robotics, digital manufacturing, material science and biology.
