The master program of Architecture offered by University of Applied Arts Vienna is the three-dimensional expression of a society. Accordingly, as mentioned in the preamble, the programme is geared toward the acquisition of technical and theoretical knowledge in connection with the development of design ideas. 


However, it also gives students an awareness of the fact that architecture is part of culture and that they bear a responsibility with regard to the given tasks. This master degree in Architecture is offered by University of Applied Arts Vienna.

By critically reflecting on “practical necessities” and standardised procedures, their specific expertise regarding space and organisation enables them to devise solutions to current and, above all, future problems and to meet the demands of society. 

This is possible thanks to an educational training that encourages collaboration and imparts to the students the necessary tools and platforms for communication. Work in the design studios trains an openness between various disciplines, and the master programme in Architecture intensifies this close interaction all the more as it is now possible to increase the intensity of studies on the structure and the solving of tasks to an advanced level.

Graduate activities

  • The field of activity that the students will be prepared for and for which the master thesis project qualifies them is in a perpetual state of flux, one that has been rapidly accelerating, above all, since the advent of digital data processing and the virtualisation of architecture - and it will only continue to increase in speed.
  • Graduates possess a high level of flexibility with which to adapt to new situations and have firm command over the latest technologies and tools. 
  • This prepares them for all architectural tasks, from spatial planning to interior design, and gives them the requisite organisational skills needed to tackle an increasingly complex production process.
