IMS Seminars

Twice a year, in March and September, IMS organizes the attendance weeks for our master students and Archineer® education. However, some students cannot participate in the entire program due to lack of time, since this program and all the studying for the master and Archineer® degree take place in parallel to their regular businesses.

For interested students, primarily architects and engineer and other professionals, who do not intend to achieve a full master degree, but still want to get all information and learn all skills of the whole program, we offer seminars which will be integrated into the attendance weeks. Seminar participants will receive the entire contents of the master program from internationally renowned lecturers and benefit from the exchange of experiences with architects and engineers from all over the world.

At the end of the seminar, all participants will get certificates for the membrane structures program of IMS e.V., confirming the undertaken modules of the course.

Notably, since the seminar does not contain further educational supervision and later support, we are able to offer the participation for an even more favorable price.
