Master in Architecture and Urban Design
Do you want to take part in designing sustainable architecture and developing socially just cities for the future? The Master’s Program in Architecture and Urban Design is operating in-between the artistic and the scientific field of knowledge. The program is characterized by a consistent focus on sustainability and has an exploratory and experimental profile with teachers from all over the world.
Ecological challenges such as climate change and social crises such as unequal local and global development and migration places raise a strong demand on architecture to develop new solutions based on broad interdisciplinary perspectives. In the Master's Program in Architecture and Urban Design, these complex issues are dealt with in various design studios. Departing from your own experience and ethical position the program wants to challenge the conventional contemporary architectural practice and the future of the profession....

Logic, Master’s Program
Logic is traditionally defined as the study of formal aspects of valid reasoning, but today many logicians see logic as a more general study of formal systems and their applications. The conceptual frameworks and tools developed by pure research in modern logic have found many applications in diverse disciplines studying formal languages and systems, e.g., software engineering and computational linguistics.
As an academic subject logic is genuinely interdisciplinary and located on the border between Philosophy, Mathematics, Computer Science, and Linguistics. The exchange is active and mutually beneficial. Logic is nowadays an active international area of study and research also in mathematics, computer science, and linguistics. ...
