With faculties and areas of study such as Architecture and Urbanism, Art and Design, Civil Engineering and Media, the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has a distinctive identity.
The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has become well-known for its wide range of teaching and research activities based on civil engineering and architecture-oriented disciplines. Today the University offers an extensive spectrum of instruction with about 40 courses of study, including fine art, design, web design, visual communication, media design, media studies, architecture, civil engineering, materials science, processing technology, environment and management.
The term »Bauhaus« stands for an eagerness to experiment, openness, creativity, a close link to industrial practice and internationality. Building on the tradition of the Bauhaus movement, all the faculties are involved in the creation of public spaces. The goal is to get science, art and technology working together analytically, creatively and innovatively on the planning, construction and design of current and future spaces of habitation. Practical experience plays an important role in all academic fields, as well as in artistic development.
Testing, certification and product development are just as important to civil engineers as they are to media developers and designers.
