Course detail

Specialised Studio

FAST-TG02Acad. year: 2018/2019

The specialized studio has a direct link to the diploma thesis both with its focus and via pedagogical guidance. It deals with a more demanding programme appropriate to the master’s level of studies. It acts as a lead-in to the diploma thesis either via a related topic or through a solution within a wider context - the area from which the diploma thesis will arise. Simultaneously, it is a comprehensive, independent project.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Practical application of theoretical knowledge gained within the framework of the selected specialisation of the subsequent master’s degree course. A lead-in for the elaboration of the final diploma project.


Knowledge and abilities gained during previous theoretical studies in the architecture study specialization and their application in creative studio work.


Basic knowledge in civil engineering disciplines.
