The degree in Architecture at the School of Architecture and Built Environment opens up all activities related to the free profession of architecture, allowing placement in the building and construction sectors, and developing useful skills even at the bigger scales of urban design and urban planning.
The degree in Architecture guarantees a more targeted and extensive preparation in line with the new sensitivity of the current times, which see the architect operate within complex and multi-scale scenarios, and offers professional training aimed at today’s technical skills and responsibilities, particularly linked to respect for the territory and the development of the built environment of the contemporary city.
