Project Management

Project managers in the field of architecture are good at working with people and are proficient in the language of architecture. They generally lead an interdisciplinary planning team while supporting their projects, with regular coordination with the client. Project managers also take over staff assignments and delegate tasks within projects. They ensure the timely, technical and economical handling of the project at all stages. 

Architect in the public sector

Whether schools, gyms, baths, museums or libraries, architecture graduates can also carry out exciting projects in the public sector. In addition to constructing new buildings, you are in demand as an expert in renovation and modernisation, building management, and monument protection. Architects in the public sector have the skills to convey their creative ideas to sceptical clients. After all, cities and municipalities must pay particular attention to the costs of building projects. These architects are creative minds with a great talent to convince clients with their commitment and persistence.
