Careers

This course provides students with knowledge and skills to understand, analyse and transform the built environment. This includes buildings, cities, and people in consideration of cultural values, societal aspects and communities both at the local and global scales. The skillset acquired by our students allows graduates not only to be aware of international and global questions regarding cities and people, but also to be able to design professionally in any context from local to international.

The curriculum of this course has been developed with the support of regional and international architectural practices and consultancy agencies ensuring a high-level business-facing approach to all activities and projects. This, and the continuous collaboration and input from our industry partners (through live projects, design competitions and projects reviews), ensures a high level of employability for our graduates.

Our students are trained in an ambitious working environment, where every project represents a positive challenge to respond creatively and professionally. The nature of the curriculum is highly enterprising, stimulating students to find and create new ways of changing cities and architecture, and establishing professional businesses working on a global market.
