In October 1991, the Department of Architecture at the University of Applied Sciences Erfurt began its lectures and courses. The Fachhochschule Erfurt was founded during the restructuring of the university landscape in the former Eastern German states after the Wall came down in 1989.
The Department of Architecture is still the only one of its kind at a university of applied sciences in Thuringia.
Computer pools and workshops
The Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning is equipped with modern PC and Mac workstations, as well as printers, plotters and state-of-the-art software - all creating the ideal conditions for future-oriented training in our field. In our digital print workshop you can prepare posters, brochures or books on the computer - an essential skill you will need with regard to marketing and competition.
In our model-making workshop, you can build working models to test your ideas before ultimately preparing them for presentation. An in-house photo studio is available for follow-up documentation, but also for artistic photography. The sculpture workshop in the basement also serves to develop our students' artistic and creative skills.
Here you will find more details about using the workshops in the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning.
All key events, such as our first-semester orientation event, take place in the auditorium, which is often bursting at the seams. In addition, the Architecture Forum is regularly held with lectures and presentations by well-known architects. Like the exhibitions in our in-house gallery, this is an established part of Erfurt's cultural scene.
The media lounge is an interesting addition to these cultural and professional events. Here you can immediately find answers to current questions, seek inspiration or browse through specialist literature for your term papers.
As a source of information, interaction and meetings, the media lounge is a valuable addition to the the main library at FH Erfurt.
Learning is hungry business, and creative breaks are often a source of new insights. This means that our cafeteria is not only an important meeting place at lunchtimes. In summer, the doors to the courtyard are opened and you can sit on the terrace, sunbathe on the lawn, read or continue your discussions outdoors...
