On February 26, 2010 the second class of the MSc Program Urban Wood was completed with the graduation ceremony at the Vienna University of Technology. Six participants were awarded the academic degree „Master of Science“.

The graduates of class 2008 - 2010 with Prof. Martens, Prof. Haller, Prof. Winter and Dipl.-Ing. Tielsch

Additionally, six students received their certificate for the participation in one module of the program.

Prof. Bob Martens, Vice Director of the Continuing Education Center, welcomed the graduates including their friends and families. He was delighted about the successful accomplishments and put forward once more the importance of research in the field of architecture.

Moreover, it was a special honor to have two renowned architects as distinguished guest speakers. Prof. Francoise-Hélene Jourda and Prof. Thomas Herzog both pointed out the importance of such a program and the necessity to provide skills for the construction of sustainable buildings especially with renewable resources like wood.

Prof. Peer Haller and Prof. Wolfgang Winter, two of the three Academic Directors of the MSc Program, handed over the certificates. Unfortunately Prof. Clara Bertolini from the Politecnico di Torino could not participate in the ceremony. The festivity was accompanied by a quartet of the university orchestra of TU Wien. After the official part of the ceremony two participants gave an interesting review of the MSc Program.
