Another factor in the University’s special profile is the diverse range of artistic workshops on offer. Workshops events aim to convey introductory skills with regard to both materials and their use in individual working areas. Additionally, they support the realisation of projects in teaching and research areas with regard to their specific material-related requirements. The »classical« workshops are complemented by media-related workshops. Depending on the free capacity available in workshops, they can be used by students from the Design, Media and Information faculties of the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften (University of Applied Sciences) as well as former students of architecture at the HFBK now attending the HCU.
