The MArch Architecture and Urbanism is a programme of studies that aims at equipping participants with the professional and creative skills for a successful career as an architect. It is structured to ensure the integration and synthesis of contextual, technical and professional complexities inherent within the design process. The architectural design process is supported by the theoretical, cultural, environmental, technical and professional studies, which provide a cross-disciplinary learning environment that is appropriate in today’s professionally complex architectural world. Through the range of the architectural design projects, the first year of studies aims at developing a design process related to complex building and urban design projects. The second year requires the completion of the diploma thesis, which involves both the developing of the theoretical as well as the design context that responds to specific questions with a complete design portfolio.
The diploma thesis functions as a transition process between the completion of architectural studies and the beginning of the professional practice. The MArch programme is shaped by the notion that Architecture graduates should be equipped to respond effectively and creatively to the challenges of contemporary society for a more sustainable future.
