Best Part time Bachelors in Urban Development 2017. Bachelor in Architecture DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE Architecture is accepted as an art which pursues efficacy; as an applied science and technology; and as a profession which aims to achieve high quality of life by designing and constructing artificial environments. In accordance with all these definitions the architectural education is structured on necessary theoretical and practice based courses and architectural design studios. The Architectural Education is four years. In this period, the compulsory courses are introduced in terms of understanding of the architectural concepts, perceiving and criticizing the space, and being informed about design principles, history of architecture, environment, structure and construction, and construction technologies. The architectural design studios, which bring the history–culture–theory knowledge together, aim to enable the students to create their own architectural designs which are innovative and can be realized. The theory and practice based two working drawing studios give an opportunity to combine structure–construction–technology–environment knowledge. At the same time to develop the artistic and technical skills of the students hand drawing and computer courses are placed in the education programme. In the computer based courses various architectural presentation and drawing programmes are intensively taught. Apart from the compulsory courses, five elective courses are placed in the education programme. Besides this, students are encouraged to take some elective courses from other departments to enrich their knowledge and understanding of interdisciplinary relationships. The Department offers a dynamic atmosphere by some exchange programmes such as ERASMUS, and domestic and international study trips. Total sixty days (30 days architectural office and 30 days construction site) summer practice and an independent graduation project at final term of fourth year are required to complete the architectural education.

Architectural programming project: researching the project background, identifying goals and objectives, gathering and analysing information, identifying programmatic strategies, establishing quantitative requirements, the synthesis of the design problem, documentation. ARCH 402 Thesis Project (0-12) 6 (ECTS- 22) The objective of the thesis project is to combine students’ architectural knowledge, experience and visions to define social, environmental and technological problems of their society in relation to architecture and to develop individual solutions in the process of design refining the student’s ability to work independently. Students will investigate architectural issues in relation to user requirements, junctions, site, natural and artificial environment, technology and specific topics and find solutions to these complex architectural problems. Students will carry out the project individually which will be evaluated by a review committee and thesis adviser. Students will prepare programmes architectural drawings, details, reports, models, and a documentation of their projects as a final submission. ARCH 412 Professional Practice (2-0) 2 (ECTS- 5) The main objective of this course is to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of architectural professional practice concerning two interrelated activities, such as architectural design and building construction.
