Architecture

Five-year study path developed according to the EU requirements, a three-year Bachelor's degree with two tracks of study (Architecture and Design), and a two-year Master's degree in Architetcture.

The courses provide the bases of the five-year programme in Architecture and covers courses regarding to various aspects of projects such as; territory, buildings, construction and manufacturing. Labs combine theory and concrete project-work, research and learning, science and humanism and take on a pragmatic approach – the latter has become a characteristic of the school. Professors, teachers and tutors bring experiences from international settings, and contribute to creating a stimulating and pluralistic environment.

Aims

Students at the Bachelor’s degree course of Architecture acquire knowledge related to the history and the fields of architecture and construction, instruments and forms of representation, theoretical-scientific and methodological-operative aspects of mathematics and other scientific fields which can be considered indispensable in architecture.

Students will learn to identify, draft and solve complex problems that may need an interdisciplinary approach in the fields of architecture and construction. Issues related to working-life ethics and organization in the public as well as in the private sector will be confronted.

Language-studies of at least one additional official EU-language besides Italian will be included in the programme. A particular emphasis is given to technical language in the fields of architecture and construction and to train students in using these terms in their future professional life.

Objectives and career opportunities

Students with a degree in Architecture will be able to perform projects in the fields of planning and constructing using skills and instruments from architectures and engineering acquired during their study-period such as. They will be capable of carrying out feasibility-studies and plan constructions, transformation and modification of the physical environment. After graduation, in their professional life, students will have to recognise and consider many aspects related to, for example: institutional context, aesthetics, distribution, function, structure, construction-techniques, management, economy and environment. They will also have to apply a critical approach to cultural changes and needs and demands expressed by the contemporary society.

After graduation architects will be capable of planning and carrying out projects, and to coordinate other specialists and actors involved such as: construction engineers, urban planners and restorers working in the field of architecture. Students having attended the Master’s degree programme will be eligible for positions such as planning architect or landscape planner or work with conservation of cultural sites or buildings in any of the EU-member countries.

Some architects may prefer to start their own business, while others choose a career in public or private organisations or corporations (such as public institutions, professional studios and planning companies) operating in the fields of construction, transformation and management of the city and the territory.
