Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • to differentiate between different building materials and construction structures in terms of their properties (sustainability, performance, durability, etc.), their processing methods and their application and to assess their possible uses depending on the situation.
  • to evaluate structural engineering solutions, e.g. foundations, roof and wall constructions as well as openings, based on criteria such as sustainability, performance, durability, etc., to select them depending on the situation and to use them constructively
  • to understand and apply building regulations in the context of building construction.
  • to independently design detailed solutions based on framework specifications.

Subject of course

INTRODUCTORY LECTURE: Prof. Feichtinger, Tue 05.03.24, 3-6 p.m., Informatik-HS (Treitlstraße 3), opposite Kunsthalle

Technical and methodological knowledge:

  • Holistic view of a building - Starting from an overall view of the building, going into detail
  • Create awareness of the basic problems in building construction (water, fire, light, air, development)
  • Promote understanding of fundamental principles in structural engineering
  • Contextual consideration and evaluation of the detail
  • Imparting technical skills for designing detailed solutions, as well as assessing the correct execution of details and knowledge of the possibilities for improvement.
  • Showing several possible solutions for a detailed situation
  • Introduction to the basic structure of standards/building regulations as a basis for independent critical application
  • Teaching the basic principles of resource-saving planning and building and the reduction of technology - sustainability not as a subsequently applied technical process but as an integral part of the design
  • Taking up current trends/developments/technologies/materials

Cognitive and practical skills:

  • The ability to grasp fundamental structural engineering and construction problems as well as for systematic forward thinking of solution models.
  • Strong connection to execution on the construction site - knowledge of the processes and those involved in planning and execution - conveying an understanding of the interaction of different trades and the timing on the construction site
  • Critical examination of the positioning of the professional field of architects - the architect as a specialist and generalist or uncritical executor of investor interests.

Social skills, innovation skills and creativity:

  • The ability to develop innovative, state-of-the-art concepts for building design and its materialization.
  • Interdisciplinarity in the planning and execution process

The following content is taught in the course: Cross-functional, construction and material-related teaching of structural engineering design principles with a focus on the implementation of architectural solutions with particular consideration of energy and resource-relevant aspects; practice-oriented construction and joining principles of wall, ceiling and roof structures; building physics and construction requirements for the execution of facade and shell constructions as well as roof and wall-bound building greening; Requirements, basics and application of prefabricated building elements and building systems; basic construction typologies of temporary and changeable spatial structures

Students acquire the skills to correctly apply structural engineering, construction and building physics principles to create an architectural solution. They are able to arrange materials and materials into structures and components in building construction in accordance with the design and ready for implementation and to join them in a material-appropriate manner.

Teaching methods

Weekly lectures (in class)

The lecture is structured as a class in such a way that the best study experience is guaranteed - i.e. minimal time expenditure with maximum knowledge. All other, alternative types of learning have a significantly poorer ability to study - less knowledge with a higher learning effort.

In general, the lack of compulsory attendance at VOs does not mean a request not to attend the lecture. It simply means that attendance is not monitored. But the lecture remains the main event. Exams are only a random check of knowledge retention. "Learning for the exam (using prepared questions)" = learning a sample! = only a fraction of the knowledge imparted.

The lecture is held in the summer semester. There is the possibility of direct exchange with the teachers during the course of the course. Only exams take place in the winter semester, and no support can be offered for alternative learning methods.

Attending the lectures is therefore expressly recommended. Personal, present participation is demonstrably reflected in a statistically significantly better knowledge transfer and exam success rate.
