Program

Interdisciplinary know-how as an asset

When planning and constructing increasingly complex hospitals, numerous specialists often work in parallel. Therefore, interdisciplinary experts should be trained to ensure the overall objective. Interdisciplinary knowledge, analytical skills and the ability to work in a team are the basis for effective planning of healthcare facilities, which leads to better workplaces and processes and optimises construction and operating costs.

The aim of this Master program is therefore to impart interdisciplinary, international and sustainable knowledge as well as high competence in its application for successful and sustainable planning, design and restructuring of healthcare facilities. The postgraduate university course Healthcare Facilities (MSc) provides the ability for interdisciplinary cooperation with a strong practical orientation.
