Description of course of studies

The bachelor degree in the programme „Landscape Architecture and Landscape Planning" provides its graduates with a sound scientific basis and - depending on the chosen area of specialization - with the necessary capabilities in technological, design- or planning oriented approaches. Graduates are expected to take over responsibility in the professional fields of landscape architecture, environmental planning, nature conservation and protection as well as in various branches of economy. For those graduates who wish to deepen their scientific knowledge and experience and plan to continue with an academic career, numerous master courses in related fields are open in Germany and all over the world as well as at TUM itself (Master Landscape Architecture, Master Landscape Planing, Ecology and Conservation, Master Environmental Planning and Ecological Engineering or Master Urbanism, Landscape and City). The bachelor programme is situated at the Center of Life and Food Sciences Weihenstephan in Freising. However, due to its interdisciplinary character it contains courses, seminars and projects in the faculties for architecture (especially for those specializing in landscape architecture) and for civil engineering. Study projects are the programmes` focal point and take over about a third of the students overall time effort during the second and third year of study. Projects are usually being worked on in teams of three or four students; with the help of the advisors, scientific background, theories and methods of various scientific disciplines is applied on specific case-related study projects. The projects and design projects usually come from recent practical work or out of current scientific developments; therefore the unity of scientific work and education in this study course is unique. The students get to know scientific principles and team work while working on complex themes in a given time span. This enables students to solve difficult and new problems in their future careers. The global academic and professional environment of the study course is met on a one term abroad stay, e.g. in one of the several partner Universities abroad or during a foreign internship.
