Best Part time Bachelors in Architecture 2017. Architecture The B.A. in Architectural Studies is designed to serve as a platform or foundational degree for students who plan to specialize in architecture and other disciplines that focus on the design, planning and construction of the built environment. It exposes students to ideas and practices currently followed in all of the School’s design disciplines and it focuses on many of the business, communications and organizational skills that are not covered in the technical requirements of the graduate curricula. Students at KU who start in the B.A. in Architectural Studies, co-enroll in graduate professional degrees and take courses that count toward the B.A. and the graduate professional degree. All B.A. students take a core of classes in architecture, design and planning. The core involves a sequence of skill-based studios, survey courses within each of the School’s disciplines, and courses in architectural history and theory. This degree core is supplemented with classes that fulfill the Core Curriculum, additional courses that meet the requirements of any one of the Undergraduate Certificate Programs, and advanced professional enrichment courses that fulfill requirements in the graduate professional degrees. From the very beginning, each student works with an advisor to make sure that appropriate progress is being made both toward the completion of the B.A. degree and, if designated, the graduate professional degree. Some students may opt to complete the 124-credit B.A. without continuing and completing the additional year (or two) required to finish one of the professional degree paths. The four-year, 124-credit course of study that leads to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Architectural Studies prepares students for graduate education in many other fields such as law, business, government, facility management, and public administration that are enhanced by a broad knowledge of architecture. It also prepares them for work in a number of fields related to architecture. Most of these fields of specialization extend beyond the traditional realms of formal architectural design, building technology and construction. Architectural specializations have emerged in space planning, acoustics, lighting, historic preservation, energy conservation, land use planning, urban design, computer application, environmental impact assessment, life safety regulation, and post-construction evaluation. New specializations continue to appear because of new social needs and improved technologies. B.A. Architectural Studies graduates have used different concentrations of professional enrichment courses to find employment in a broad range of fields in both the public and private sectors. Within the federal and state governments, B.A. graduates have gone to work in facility management, space planning, historic preservation consulting and other offices that deal with the public building stock. At the local and municipal level, they have found employment in economic development agencies, heritage and community centers, and similar public organizations that promote improvement, preservation or modification of the built environment. Some have also gone to work in not-for-profit and development agencies and private-public and federally-funded organizations that promote community economic growth and development involving extensive planning, survey work, housing analyses, community organization, and other “grass roots” tasks. Within the private sector, B.A. graduates have combined their training in architecture with course work in communications, project management and organizational behavior to land jobs in facility management, property management, building materials supply and sales, architectural services marketing, and historic preservation surveying, research and consulting. Students who complete the B.A. and later wish to become licensed architects may pursue a professionally accredited Master of Architecture degree. [-]

Habitat Design

Quasar Design University in Rome
Campus Part time November 2017 Italy Rome

The three-year post-diploma course in Habitat Design form designers in the following areas: interior architecture, product design, green architecture and open spaces, exhibition stands and exhibitions. [+]

Habitat Design The three-year post-diploma course in Habitat Design form designers in the following areas: interior architecture product design, green architecture and open spaces, exhibition stands and exhibitions. The course is active since 1987 and updated with each new edition. The course is recognized by MIUR as an Academic Diploma Level I. Who it is aimed at This university-level course is aimed at school leavers, from all types of secondary schools, who intend to dedicate themselves – to paraphrase Munari – to Art as a trade, in other words to a distinctly expressive-artistic technical activity, suitable for aesthetically and functionally improving the complex of elements that characterise the living environment, but without any town-planning implications and less involvement in bureaucratic-administrative procedures. It is an educational course that aims to emphasise the unitary character of the human environment and therefore of the instruments and skills required to ensure its care and increase its quality. Educational Objectives The objectives pursued in the Habitat Design course are: to guarantee to students the attainment of critical maturity, an understanding of the problems connected to transformational intervention on the living environment and methods for their most suitable solution; to provide students with technical knowledge and educational experiences in the fields of construction and production – artisan and industrial – for a speedy and satisfying start to their professional activities; to ensure graduates possess a secure planning method that encompasses creativity and rigour, both supported by an adequate grasp of the techniques of representation, both manual and computer-assisted, through the most advanced software available in 2 and 3D design and virtual modelling; to form characters who are expert in multiple and complementary techniques, all unified by method, guaranteeing, at the same time, a flexible planning attitude that allows the young professional to deal with the challenges arising from rapid social mutations and not just existing ones. Awarded qualification Academic Diploma Level I recognized by MIUR. Creative jobs The graduates in Habitat Design can operate in many fields: all those situations when the intervention is required of a specialist capable of guaranteeing aesthetic quality united with technical and functional performance, respecting the available budget and with a particular attention to detail. More precisely: fitting out public or private spaces, whether residential or for work; commercial locations and places that are open to the public; renovation, reconversion and rehabilitation of spaces, including for changes of use. The graduate in Habitat Design can draft plans and manage works for projects that do not require authorisation, that is, other than the abovementioned fittings of very sort: sets, exhibitions, temporary structures, gardens and open spaces, as well as designing objects of all kinds, including those that will be mass produced, by artisan or industrial structures. This is an extremely vast and varied operative field, that can allow unsuspected talents to emerge and also create professional opportunities in promising but largely unexplored sectors. As a professional, graduates can join one of the professional associations in Italy or abroad. Partners ADI, Abitare il Tempo, Fiera di Vicenza, Coni, Casa dell’Architettura, Ferrarelle, Barilla, Peroni-Nastro Azzurro, Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna Roma, Palombini Caffè, Ikea, Salone Satellite di Milano, International Academy Okinawa, Caritas Diocesiana, Polizia di Stato, Casaidea, Slamp, Conservatoire International des Jardins. Subjects The course deals with, studies and thoroughly analyses all those disciplines that support the project, providing it, on the one hand, with the necessary pragmatic dimension, and, on the other, with that solid theoretical-critical structure and cultural depth that are indispensable for cultured and aware designer. With this aim, the course teaches, other than the disciplines inherent in design, all those relative to construction materials and working techniques; the history and criticism of architecture, design and the figurative arts; the principles at the base of the visual languages as instruments and codes of invention; modelling applied to design. With these pragmatic objectives that aim at the acquisition, in a set time, of a solid professionalism, this course takes the form of a valid alternative to more theoretical studies. After a first year aimed at establishing and consolidating the operative method and culture of creative design, over the next two years students increasingly deal with all the technical aspects and experiences that will be useful in their profession. The three-year Habitat Design course aims directly at the result: the possession, on the part of the graduate, of professional skills and capabilities. Course location The course "Habitat Design" will be held in Rome at Quasar Design University. Via Crescenzio 17 A Roma(RM) - 00193 [-]
