Architecture and Design (2020/2021)

Integrated five years first and second cycle studies (300 ECTS - 10 semesters)
Study Cycle: First and Second Cycle (Integrated)
Faculty: Contemporary Sciences and Technologies
Programme Code: AD3+2
Academic year: 2021 / 2022
Title: Master of Architecture
ECTS: 300 (5 years) Accrediation
Decision:

Reasonability for the introduction of the new study program stems from following the recommendations of the Bologna Declaration and the implementation processes of the existing accredited programs. By taking into account the need to provide a wider choice of compatible study programs, while justifying the concept of mobility of directions and students, this program enables selection of direction according to the affinities and abilities of each individual student.

The study program “Architecture and designis intended to meet the demand for greater compatibility with European and other world centers and universities where this type of study program is studied, at the same time, adapting it to the specific market needs. In particular, the structure of the proposed study program leads from common, to specific, concentrated courses that define the direction based on recognized practices and knowledge and not on the basis of any choice. The gradual mastering of the material continuously separates the attention from the architectural-engineering to the artistic-visual and historical-philosophical domain in education, as a second factor of choice.

With the completion of this study program, the graduate has access to the profession of architect, that is, the right to be the holder of project and planning documentation.
