  • Description of the expertise offered
    Institute of Architecture of Residential buildings The main feature is professional specialization in the field of the architecture of residential buildings and housing issues and related areas. Concentration at the field of designing of various types of residential buildings, family houses, hotels, retirement houses, student dormitories as well as other non-standard typological types, studying the typological types of housing architecture in broad perspective of spatial, cultural, historical and social context, orientation on actual trends that supports the idea of sustainability. Institute of Public Buildings The mission of the Institute of Civic Structures is pedagogical, scientific research and creative activity in the field of architectural design of buildings for administration, education, retail, service, transport, public catering, culture, healthcare, sport and leisure time. New trends in the design of these buildings are the main content of research activity of Institute and acquired knowledge is applied to pedagogical and creative activity. Institute of Ecological and Experimental Architecture The main focus of the Institute of Ecological and Experimental Architecture within its research activities is on the relationship of architecture and environment from the point of environmental, ecological and sustainable principles which are closely linked to the use of alternative building technologies and building materials. Few last years were being devoted to investigation of solar access design while using the concept of solar envelope or contemporary ITs as scripts and algorithms, too. Based on the name of the institute, employees are primarily focused on reduction of energy demands of buildings even whole city districts or cities. Research is conducted in the field of energy cooperativeness, utilization of solar appliances as building integrated photovoltaic. The scope of the research is moving from the scale of the single building to complex systems - the city. All those interests are accompanied by research within the urban democracy, urban decency, and history of the city, smart cities and smart grids or by the concept of crime prevention through environmental design. Specific role in the research of this institute plays the preservation and rescue of archaeological and historical monuments. Institute of History and Theory of Architecture and Monument Restoration The Institute is engaged in world and home history of architecture, general theory of architecture, and specialist terminology in architecture, urban planning and design. It is also engaged in artistic aspects of the architectural pieces of work. The core activities of the Institute include research and publication within history and theory of architecture. Institute of Constructions in Architecture and Engineering Structures The Institute is covering the teaching and research activities aiming at materials in architecture, starting with the basic building components, continuing with building structures and their statics, physics, technical services, and finishing with design of structural systems. Here the experimental structural design is important. The research activities aim at mapping the progressive trends in building, theories of structural systems as well as architectural details. Institute of Interior and Exhibition Design The Institute gives basic theoretical instruction in the field of the interior; and open studio work aimed at the application of historic setting design principles, interior composition, furniture construction, residential interiors, theory and methodology of interior design. Practical training within studio work arises from knowledge gained at theoretical subjects; students work on projects from a concept phase to a detailed specification of their assignments, and from constructional building elements to the interior specifications and furnishing. Institute of Urban Design and Planning The Institute is covering the teaching and research activities aiming at optimal integration of the principles and methods of urban design and land-use planning in relation to current trends and requirements of sustainable development. The Institute actively develops the knowledge in the respective scientific disciplines and implement it into the professional profile of its graduates. Diversity of the team is one of the Institute‘s benefits. Representation of the dimensions for designing urban settlements and zones, urban economics, land use planning, create the conditions for complex approach to research and education. Institute of Industrial Design The main focus of the Institute on design, multimedia and information and communication technologies. It is characterized by the specialized teaching in the artistic field of design that determines the character of work at the Institute. The main aim of the Institute is to develop students’ creative potential within the whole process of designers’ training, i.e. to present students with the most possible complex information in the field of humanities and technical sciences, to teach them to be able to use artistic expression, to gain manual skills and to allow them to express their individual creativity. Video production, photography and multimedia are the other fields of the Institute. The Department of Computer Aided Architectural and Urban Design plays an important role in the process of using new information and communication technologies in the creative work and realizations of architectural and design projects.

  • Description of the organisation
    The Faculty of Architecture STU is the largest educational institution for architects in the Slovak Republic. The trends of the Faculty are developed and based on ongoing development of the "university platform" of University Education. Bound to it is the recently realized innovation of the Faculty's profile and its education activities within the bachelor's, master's and PhD. study programs. The profile reflects university principles and establishes a condition for professional performance within the home country and the EU framework. In this respect there is a clear orientation to prepare architects, urban planners and designers within a creative framework. The present two-year tier system of study focuses on the preparedness of a graduate. Awareness in the art and theory subjects is emphasized, as well as in a variety of technical and design subjects from urban planning to interior design. The teaching of architecture at the STU began in 1946, making the Faculty of Architecture (FA) the newest addition to the Slovak University of Technology (STU) Faculty. At that time the Department of Architecture and Structural Engineering was established as a part of the Structural Engineering Branch at Slovak Polytechnic (SVŠT), today called the Faculty of Civil Engineering. The names of such professors as E. Belluš, E. Kramár, V. Karfik, E. Hruška, J.E. Koula, A. Piffl, V. Chrobák, and A. Hannauer are inseparably linked with the establishment of this department. In 1949, the department became an independent branch of Architecture and Construction Engineering, which in 1950 changed its name to the Faculty of Architecture and Construction Engineering (FAPS). Although in 1960, the independent FAPS again became part of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, in 1976 the Faculty of Architecture began to function as an independent faculty. In 1989, the application of a two-level system of university study was introduced along with various study programs and the re-organization of the Faculty structure to achieve optimization. The Faculty of Architecture is situated in a building designed by Emil Belluš, the most important Slovak architect in the last century and the founder of the school for whom the hall "Aula of Professor Belluš" (residing within the college) is named. In addition to such lecture classrooms, studios, computer facilities and the Faculty library which holds significant professional books and journals (many which are internationally acclaimed) may be utilized for the development of creative abilities and professional skills.
