Our training provides theoretical, technological and cultural knowledge to future architects, lecturers and researchers. Our teaching methodology integrates professional practice and research, since our faculty includes renowned professionals, whose work is nationally and internationally recognized in the fields of architectural projects, art, technology and criticism.
The study plan is divided into two study cycles, in accordance to the Bologna Process.
