063-0852-21L Focus Work FS21 in the Field of History and Theory in Architecture (gta)
|Semester||Spring Semester 2021|
|Periodicity||every semester recurring course|
|Language of instruction||German|
|Abstract||Indentation work of the Institute gta, of which the content can also refer to an elective subject.|
The topic is determined in consultation with the chosen professor.
|Objective||The result is either a purely written work followed by an oral examination or a creative, craft or drawing work - including description - followed by oral examination.|
In at least one specialization work, the performance assessment is a written work followed by an oral examination. In formal terms, the written work has to fulfill all the criteria of a scientific work.
In addition to the design, crafting or drawing part, a design work also includes a written description of the question, methodology and possible gain in knowledge of the work
The written or creative craft or drawing work and the oral exam are each evaluated individually. These two evaluations are offset against each other and give the overall grade for the specialization work"
|Content||In-depth work is carried out in the respective subject areas of the institute. The professors determine the topics in consultation with the students. The content of the in-depth work can also relate to the content of an elective course.|
The performance assessment comprises either a purely written work with a subsequent oral examination or a creative, technical or graphic work, including a description, with a subsequent oral examination.
At least in the case of one in-depth thesis, the performance assessment must take the form of a purely written work with a subsequent oral examination (Regulations Paragraph 2 Letter a). In formal terms, the written work must meet the criteria of an academic paper. In addition to the creative, manual or drawing part, it includes a written description of the question, the methodology and the possible gain in knowledge of the work.
The students take the oral examination with the professor with whom they have discussed the topic of the in-depth thesis.
The written or creative, manual or drawing work and the oral examination are each assessed individually. These two assessments are offset against each other and result in the overall grade for the in-depth work. Paragraph 7 remains reserved.
The oral examination can only be taken if the written work or the creative, technical or graphic work is sufficient.
A thesis is passed if the overall grade is at least 4.
It is considered not passed if the overall grade is below 4; if the written or creative, technical or graphic work is unsatisfactory and therefore the oral examination cannot be taken; in such a case, the failure will be noted with the term “dropout”.
An in-depth thesis that has not been passed cannot be repeated. In order to acquire the required CP, a further in-depth work must be carried out and the performance must be assessed with an overall grade of at least 4. The number of attempts is limited (see regulations).
If more than one “in-depth study” course unit is not passed, the course is considered to have been definitively failed, which leads to exclusion from the course.
The creative, craft or drawing in-depth work is publicly exhibited. Purely written in-depth theses are made publicly available.
|Prerequisites / Notice||The indentation work can be carried out to a predefined or self-selected theme of the architecture. If several works are carried out, they must be selected from the departments of at least two different institutes of the D-ARCH. The details are regulated in Art. 34.|
