Programme profile

This programme produces professional figures with specific competences in architectural design, urban and landscape planning, structural, technological and environmental design, architectural restoration, conservation and promotion of architectural assets and interior design.

The degree programme is divided equally between theoretical and practical course units.
At the end of the first cycle (years 1 and 2), students shall be assessed on their command of the following fundamental elements:
Architectural logic;
History of essential components of architecture;
Basic (conventional and computer) techniques for architectural representation;
Preparatory subjects for technical project management.
The second cycle (years 3 and 4) provides scientific, technical and professional training in architectural design and urban planning, architectural construction and restoration.
The third cycle (year 5) covers the study of specific topics and subject areas in workshops and the production of the final examination.
The single cycle degree programme in Architecture starts with the acquisition of solid grounding in mathematics, physics, technical and historical subjects and architectural representation, as well as basic training in architectural design.
In particular, the course units in mathematics, physics and technical subjects aim to develop the methodological knowledge and experimental skills required to understand the technical issues related to architectural design; Course units in the history of architecture provide the knowledge required for the recognition and critical assessment of works, related to their form, context and the materials and techniques used. Those in the representation of architecture and living spaces provide the tools for understanding architecture and developing and communicating design ideas.
The programme includes single-subject course units and workshops to develop design skills in the different areas of architectural and urban design, restoration, structural design, as well as knowledge of the economic and legislative issues connected to all fields of architectural design.
The design workshops held throughout the programme aim to assess the acquired knowledge, but also offer the perfect educational opportunity for developing design skills integrating the different competences and are open to the contribution of specialist knowledge involved in contemporary design processes, in line with the teaching structure used in the majority of European countries. The ultimate objective is to produce designers able to oversee the formal, constructive, productive and regulatory aspects involved in the transformation of the built environment, on different scales and in different contexts.
Some modifications have been introduced compared to the previous degree system, concerning the study of the English language; Architecture graduates will also have a command of English to level B2; study may include both the acquisition of the four linguistic skills (reading, writing, listening and dialogue) and compulsory attendance of lessons, in line with the criteria specified by the study programme coherently with the instructions of the Academic Bodies.
