Our vision on architecture education

At the Department of Architectural Engineering, we are the architectural engineers of tomorrow: creative, critical and technically trained designers who can operate in the fascinating but challenging construction sector.

Read our complete vision.



The three-year bachelor's programme develops basic knowledge, skills and a conscious attitude among our students. Fundamental sciences, together with the theory and history of architecture, form the instruments of the future architectural engineer. 

Read everything about the bachelor.



In collaboration with the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), the department of Architectural Engineering offers a two-year international master's programme. The master's programme prepares students for a wide range of job opportunities.

Do you have any questions? That's the way it should be. You can read dozens of brochures. Click through hundreds of web pages. Hours of palavering with friends. But at which university it is best to start your higher studies, you only discover by keeping yourself well informed.
