  • carry out spatial planning,
  • demonstrate understanding of the theoretical foundations of artistic creativity,
  • recognise artistic creativity in a developmental context,
  • identify the laws and development of settlement in a space and its spatial planning and social implications,
  • apply legal principles to the regulation of space and the protection of the environment,
  • incorporate legislation from the field of spatial planning, landscape and environmental protection into their professional activity,
  • use modern bio-engineering methods in landscape planning,

  • recognise plant species that are used in plantations (ornamental plants) and their use with regard to their characteristics,
  • design (create) plantations (functional, ornamental) of (ornamental) plants in a space,
  • identify ecosystems or parts of ecosystems in the natural environment (communities, ecosystems, habitat types),
  • identify phenomena in the physical world (geomorphological and pedological phenomena, erosion dynamics, geological phenomena, water and climate/meteorological phenomena, etc.)
  • demonstrate understanding of the general laws of nature (e.g. evolution/succession, circulation of materials and energy, other processes in the ecosystem, etc.),

Further info: 


  • Matura or
  • vocational matura with additional examination, or
  • school-leaving examination (prior to 1 June 1995) under any four-year secondary school programme.


Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is graded as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10). 


In order to complete the programme, students must complete all course units in all subjects in which they have enrolled, for a total of 180 credits.
