Architectural designs shape our environment and affect the way we manage our everyday lives. The faculty is devoted to educating critical and independent thinkers who comprehend the importance of architecture's social impact. The program embraces the interdisciplinary nature of the discipline and offers a broad range of courses in order to equip students with knowledge and skills that will enable them to design aesthetically pleasing, structurally safe, technologically sound, environmentally healthy, and comfortable buildings.
During the first year, the curriculum establishes foundational knowledge in mathematics, physics, arts, and culture as well as in design and architectural drawing. This foundational year reflects the interdisciplinary nature of architecture and allows students to share an intellectual environment specifically within the faculty as well as the university at large. The second-year curriculum introduces students to topics of architectural history, structural design, and construction of buildings. Design studios rest at the curriculum's core and enable students to apply knowledge learned in these courses to architectural design problems. The collaborative design studios in the second year expose students to concepts of interiors, environmental design, urban design, and landscape architecture. They aim to help students understand and appreciate the interdisciplinary character of architecture. The third and fourth-year courses that follow offer advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in various areas of architecture and develop skills in architectural design. Together with a wide range of electives, these courses allow students to specialize in different aspects of the discipline. Courses on professional practice and summer practices held in offices and construction sites help prepare students for future professional life.
