ARCHITECTURE

Short Description

The programme provides a basis for architectural education in general, as well as a first stage in the preparation for a professional career in architecture. The core of the programme is the design studio, complemented by courses in the humanities, technology, design computation and professional practice. Students are encouraged to enrich their basic architectural studies through an extensive range of elective courses, both architectural and cross disciplinary, and through independent study and the experience of other cultures made possible by field trips and student exchange.
