Complying with the European accreditation standards, the Faculty offers academic
education and carries out research at an internationally compatible level in the
following study fields: Architecture and Urban Design, Landscape and Garden
Architecture, Industrial and Product Design. Since 2002, in coherence with the
Bologna Declaration, the study model consists of Bachelor's degree programmes
in the study fields Architecture and Urban Design, Industrial and Product Design (4
years), and in Landscape and Garden Architecture (3 years). The Master's
degree programmes are in Architecture, in Urban Design, and Industrial and Product
Design (2 years). These as well as the Doctoral degree programmes (3 years) can
be taken also in English. In Architecture and Urban Design the curriculum
corresponds to the requirements of the Directive 2005/36/EC on professional qualification.
The studies are organized in the ECTS credit system allowing thus vivid participation in exchange programmes.
The Faculty of Architecture has a specialized library equipped with modern
communication facilities. Own periodicals and specialized units contribute
significantly to the research profile of the Faculty. Thematic research is being done
by staff and co-researchers from the Academy of Sciences, other Faculties or
practice under various grant programmes, complemented by exhibitions, workshops
and competitions (e.g. Ecocity project, Oikodomos programme or urbANNAtur).

The Kuffner family mausoleum in Sládkovičovo (1926) and the mausoleum in the village of Pomáz near Budapest (1912) are the only realized sepulchral structures from the exceptionally extensive work of M. M. Harminc. Despite their subtle character, they reflect the diversity of their creator’s typological range and stylistic adaptability, in an interesting manner complementing his historicizing motifs which, joined with modernist elements, lingered well into the 20th century.
Along with the mausoleum in Pomáz, the Kuffner mausoleum in Sládkovičovo completes, in a significant way, the wide typological and stylistic range of Harminc´s structures of his first two work periods.

Activities of the architectural office of Michal Milan Harminc in Budapest (1897-1916)]. Epites-Epiteszettudomany, Vol. 41, 2013, 1-2, pp. 115-144
The beginnings of career of Milan Michal Harminc, one of the founders of modern Slovak architecture are related to Budapest. His office in the capital city between 1897-1915 has developed a significant activity, which results are represented almost in the entire territory of historic Hungary. Harminc after establishing of his own office worked more for Slovak orders. It was a way, how he created a network of contacts with crucial importance for his future work. While Harminc in the capital created projects primarily for residential building, the typological scale of his Slovak realizations is more diverse: churches, private houses, banks, offices, schools and one museum. However, not only the professional work, but also architect's activities in associations deserves a closer attention. Harminc was an active member and later a chairman of the Budapest Slovak Society and also a generous benefactor of Slovak and Serbian students. He was opened to the technological and constructional innovations, but his floor plans, dispositions and facades followed schemes generally accepted in the second half of the 19th century. He respected client's expectations and the character of the task. In his eclecticism we could see a certain developmental line from earlier forms inspired by the Baroque and Rococo towards to more hesitant, classical expression which is typical for his best works of period after 1918.
KRÁLIK, J. – KRÁLIK, Jr., J. : Probability assessment of analysis of high-rise buildings seismic resistance (Conference Paper). In: Advanced Materials Research, Vol. 712-715, 2013, pp. 929-936
This paper presents the probabilistic assessment to analyze the resistance of the unsymmetrical effects (accidental torsional effects, soil-structure interaction, and seismic action) to symmetrical high rise buildings. The Eurocode requires that the seismic resistance of structures must be checked to the accidental torsion effects. In order to cover uncertainties in the location of masses and in the spatial variation of the seismic motion, the calculated centre of mass at each floor shall be considered displaced from its nominal location in each direction by an accidental eccentricity due to the requirements of ENV 1998. Recent advances and the general accessibility of information technologies and computing techniques give rise to assumptions concerning the wider use of the probabilistic assessment of the reliability of structures through the use of simulation methods. The possibilities of the utilization the RSM method to analyze the extensive and robust tasks in FEM is presented in the case of the buildings with central core and columns system. The deterministic and probability analysis of the seismic resistance of the structure was calculated in the ANSYS program.
BUDIAKOVÁ, M.: Energy concept design of zero energy buildings (Conference Paper). In: Advanced Materials Research, Vol. 649, 2013, pp. 7-10
The paper is oriented on the design of energy concepts of zero energy buildings. In the first phase of concept is important the good architectural design in terms of energy. In the residential building for four flats I calculated the annual energy consumption by computer simulation in the current condition and in the proposed reconstruction. I demonstrate that the unbalanced architectural design of flats in a residential building causes also after reconstruction a significant difference in energy consumption. This means that when developing energy concept of zero energy building the first essential step is energy efficient architectural design, taking into an account the energy aspects. The next step is to the use of technological aspects: passive and active use of solar gains, effective ventilation systems with heat recovery and new generation of heat pumps. For the formation of zero energy buildings is essential application of described progressive trends in the development of energy concepts.
BUDIAKOVÁ, M.: Effective ventilation and heating systems in office buildings. (Conference Paper). In: Advanced Materials Research, Vol. 649, 2013, pp. 189-192
The paper is oriented on the effective ventilation, heating and cooling systems in office buildings by utilization of renewable energy sources. All these systems must be in mutual harmony and ensure thermal comfort. Ventilation system must use the power of wind, the heated air from the double skin facade, heat recovery system, preheating or cooling in the ground channel. In the summer, there must be used the night natural cooling of building. For the heating is the most suitable to use radiant floor heating (30%) in combination with radiant ceiling heating (70%). The next progressive way is the combination of new concrete core conditioning and floor convector heaters.
