The program aims to provide interior architects with the ability to create aesthetic, functional and sustainable solutions, using their high standard of professional knowledge and based on a strong background in design.
Architecture demands that students develop their “creative skills”. It also requires that students develop their cultural background. Students will, therefore, be asked to participate in various cultural activities and develop their entrepreneurial capacities. All the efforts will be spent in order to make their education a colorful one.
Traditional architecture and building techniques occupy a part of the curriculum. But students will also be taught today’s techniques and materials. Each student will be expected to have acquired a good skill in computer-aided-design by the time of his graduation. Together with other skills, each student will have reached the capacity of finding an employment abroad easily. This is demanded by the current relationships of Turkey with the European Union and the international arena of architecture.
A good knowledge of the history of civilizations, arts, architecture and finally of modern and contemporary architecture is considered as a must, or a prerequisite of, successful design. The student will be brought from the past to the present and carried to the future of the world of architecture and other design disciplines.
The number of courses and their hours decreases through the years until the last semesters. On the other hand, the numbers and hours of elective courses increase in order to open the way for specialization in different fields of architecture.
