As one of the five departments within the Faculty of Architecture, the Department of Architecture offers a program of studies directed towards a professional Master of Architecture degree. The curriculum focuses on transforming the lessons of history, technology, culture, climate, regional and social aspirations into a program for architecture. Students have freedom to experiment with ideas and methods as they develop their own personal critical approaches to architectural design. The academic freedom, one of the program’s highlights is visible in work done within the school as well as in the wide range of courses students elect to take outside of the faculty. The program produces graduates who are well versed in a wide range of critical issues. Through their study, students understand the contextual imperative of contemporary architectural exploration and production. With five departments in constant interaction, the Faculty of Architecture provides and excellent platform for discussing issues of sustainability and urban rehabilitation, the relevance of local and global contexts, and the importance of basic human emotions, needs and desires.
