Examination Modalities

For those who need the grades to complete their Bachelor:
You will be provided a catalogue of questions. Work out all questions.
In an oral exam, you will be asked questions from each chapter of the semester.

For those who need the grades as a regular architectural science seminar in the Master:
Try to work out all questions and bring the answers with you to the exam. Deepen any chapter, field or question you are interested in. Write a short essay, 1 page A4 per ECTS :) or make interesting diagrams that explain the effect of the physical world on architecture. We meet then to discuss the output.


Basically for those students who lacked knowledge of building physics was certified in the notification of admission. Also open to those who are interested.
