School of Architecture, Wood and Civil Engineering

Designing the built environment of the future.

The BFH-AHB is the only educational and research institution in Switzerland to combine architectural, timber and civil engineering under one roof and for holistic solutions. We build on a decades-long experience for using natural resources with the international known innovation center for wood and open up new possibilities for a sustainably built environment.

  • Our project-, practice- and science-oriented courses prepare future architects, civil or timber engineers and professionals in the timber industry for their careers. Interdisciplinary elements are an integral part of every degree programme.
  • With our continuing education programmes, comprising numerous MAS and CAS, courses, national conferences and regional events, we impart up-to-date knowledge about the built environment and offer platforms for professional exchange.
  • Our research and development activities are oriented towards the needs of practice partners from business and society. We provide them with new, tailor-made solutions for their products and services.
