The programme is designed to provide the student with a comprehensive educational experience, gaining knowledge and skills in preparation for the successful and ethical practice of architecture. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors Architecture 2014. Bachelor of Architecture The Bachelor of Architecture curriculum of the School of Architecture is designed to provide the student with a comprehensive educational experience, gaining knowledge and skills in preparation for the successful and ethical practice of architecture. Design studios and courses build cumulatively over the five years in order to establish a broad and deep foundation of knowledge in architecture and urban design in relation to developments in the sciences, arts, and technology. The curriculum stresses the importance of architecture as a humanistic discipline concerned with the design and construction of habitats in diverse social and ecological conditions, and their corresponding requirements for sustainability and ethical responsibility. The five year professional program is framed within the context of a rigorous liberal arts education that includes a wide range of required and elective courses in the Humanities and Social Sciences, together with elective opportunities in the Schools of Art and Engineering, emphasizing the nature of architecture as a cultural, social, and technological practice intimately tied to the increasingly urgent questions raised by the man-made and natural environment. First Year The First Year is conceived as a broad introduction to society, culture, environment, and the nature, place and role of architecture in this context. The student is introduced to the principles and experience of drawing and representation in a broad range of media and formats: freehand drawing is taught side by side with projective geometry (hand constructed and computer generated), and other means of architectural representation. The Architectonics Studios encourage the investigation of space, structure, and form, as inflected by the occupation and movement of the human body, and situated in the context of environments from natural to urban. The first two semesters of the History of Architecture sequence take the student through the global developments in architecture from Antiquity to the end of the Medieval Period, with special attention to non-western and traditional architectures. The First year of the Humanities and Social Sciences Core emphasize the student’s reading, writing, and analytical skills through the study of literary, historical, and sociological texts. Second Year The Second Year advances the student’s knowledge of architecture historically, culturally, and professionally. The Second Year Design Studios are dedicated to the examination, through analysis and design exercises, of the “elements” of architecture and their assemblage, including sites and its ecological conditions, program, spatial accommodation and organization structure and environment. The first segment of the structures sequence introduced students to the principles of architectural structure. The second two semesters of the History of Architecture sequence examine the history of global architecture from the Renaissance to the present, with special emphasis on the complex environmental relations between increasingly industrialized and developing societies. The second year of the Humanities and Social Sciences core advances the students’ knowledge of writing and analytic skills with in-depth courses in literature, history, and philosophy. Third Year The Third Year is envisaged as a comprehensive experience of the discipline in design and professional knowledge, supplemented by a range of required and elective courses in environmental, technological, and humanistic subjects, forming an integrated introduction to the environmental, social, and programmatic understanding of design. The Third Year Design Studios build from analysis to synthesis, from analyses of total building assemblages and smaller-scale design exercises, to the development of a comprehensive design for a complex programmatic institution. To this end, the faculty responsible for the teaching of environmental technology, building technology, and structures join the design faculty as teachers in the design studio, with students bringing appropriate aspects of their design proposals for elaboration within the specialized courses. Fourth Year The Fourth Year broadens the study of architecture, placing it within its diverse urban and rural contexts, with students gaining advanced knowledge of technological, structural, and professional concerns, the planning, zoning, social and cultural implications of architectural interventions. The Fourth Year Design Studios study the relation of institutional architecture to urban networks and infrastructures, public space, and typologies, from the investigation of rebuilding strategies following disasters, the role and nature of tall buildings, the nature of public and private institutions. The study of landscape is emphasized, both as large-scale natural environments and smaller scale site developments. A broad spectrum of specialized elective courses, including Modern Architectural Concepts, Analysis of Architectural Texts, Landscape, Advanced Topics in Environmental Studies, History, Theory and Criticism, Advanced Concepts in the related arts and professional ethics, deepens the understanding of the profession, and its relationship to different cultures and environmental context. Fifth Year The Fifth Year is constructed around the student’s development of their individual thesis project, and the in-depth study of professional practice in all its aspects. The year-long Thesis is divided into two stages over two semesters, with intensive research followed by a comprehensive design. The subjects of the thesis vary in scale and context, with the proviso that the student investigates a problem of fundamental importance to contemporary life and architecture, identified as a site for the intervention of design as an ameliorative construct. Overall the design thesis emphasizes the profound relationship of architecture to the broader problems of the environment and ecological sustainability, whether at the scale of desertification and rising sea-waters brought on by global warming, the provision of unpolluted water to developing communities, to the smaller scales of urban signification, mobility, and programmatic re-use. The course in professional practice surveys the questions of licensing, internship and IDP participation, and introduces students through site visits to a range of practices and public hearings. Minor Students in good academic standing with advance permission who complete a minimum of 15 upper-division credits in a specific field of liberal arts may qualify for a minor in that field of humanities and social sciences. Minors are offered and will be designated on student transcripts in the following fields: American studies; art history; literature; history and society. Additional information is available from the office of the dean of humanities and social sciences.

The Faculty of Architecture has two departments, namely that of Architecture and İnterior Architecture and Environmental Design [+]

Best Part time Bachelors Architecture 2014. The Faculty of Architecture has two departments, namely that of Architecture and İnterior Architecture and Environmental Design. These have a total of 450 students comprising about 10% of the university student population. We aim at educating students who have a good knowledge of implementation and the construction market, good acquintance of contemporary materials and detailing and developed creative design capacity. With these in mind, we invite professionals of all kinds to participate in our education and actiivities. There are currently as many visiting lecturers as the permenant staff, but this is to decrease gradually down to 20-30 % in the future. By inviting professionals we aim at uniting theory with practice. In addition, at all times, between 10 to 20% of our academic staff is composed of foreign nationalities. Knowing that love of a profession is the key for success, each academic year we engage in many diverse social and academic activities. Some of these are carried from the local up to the national and international scale. The faculty desires to further develop it’s international relations and this is clearly stated among its development goals and objectives. The Faculty, in parallel to the aims of the University, also serves the city of İzmir and it’s region. We collaborate with several municipalities and government offices in preparing projects and research. These also help increase the experience of our staff and students. We are conscious that good professional knowledge does not suffice and that students will need entrepreneurial skills in order to succeed, when they face market realities in the future. The Faculty, therefore, spends considerable effort in educating its students in this direction. Evidently, all students need to have ability to use computers efficiently. Although a certain number of courses are given in our two departments, all cannot be taught for obvious reasons. We also wish that each one of our students develop his/her freehand drawing capacity. We realise that this slowly disappearing skill needs to be protected preciously and futher developed. Our staff- student relations are carefully managed so that each student feels at home when he or she is at the campus.... [-]

If you do not possess a formal English language qualification you will need to take an English test with us and, if necessary, enrol for an English Language course here at GAU Canterbury, to bring you up to the required degree entry level.
