In accordance with the European Directive Architects, this Single-Cycle (5-year-long) Degree in Architecture will equip students with the skills to creatively master all the transformations of anthropic space, merging back together architecture and urban space, building design and structure, city and environment, innovation and conservation. In other words, it will form architects capable of balancing between theoretical and cultural knowledge and technical and professional skills, in order to guarantee cultural awareness, creative skills, and up-to-date knowledge of the technical sphere, as well as of that of production and of the job market.
The course’s main objective is to train an architect who:
-knows how to deal with the complexities of the city, of the territory and of the contemporary, ever-changing landscape, in order to meet the standards of quality, environmental balance and urban reconstruction;
-knows the history of architecture and urban design, how to represent and communicate a project, and the methodological and scientific aspects of core sciences to manage the creative and executive processes of architecture;
-knows how to employ innovative technologies in the fields of materials and components, as well as in those of structures and energy saving; knows how to use the critical and theoretical instruments needed for an interdisciplinary approach to architectural and urban issues, in order to shape his or her own path to planning and future further specializations, demanded by the complexity of architecture and the contemporary city.
Upon the completion of the course, the graduate can take the bar exam to practise the profession and become a registered ‘senior’ architect. The sections which can be accessed are those established by the current regulations, namely architecture, planning, landscape, conservation.
