What will I learn studying architecture abroad?

Being an architect is a constantly evolving role, and is central to the design and implementation of public and private environments. In order to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a career in architecture, students must pass extensive formal education (usually a minimum of a four-year bachelor's degree but can also include master's degree), and gain professional practice through course projects and internships. An architecture degree involves studying a wide range of subjects, including:

  • Architectural theory and design
  • Interior and landscape architecture
  • Mathematics and physics
  • Architectural history
  • Architectural engineering
  • Materials and building construction
  • Computer-aided design and drafting technologies

Because employers often seek graduates with a certain amount of practical experience, the curriculum of an architecture degree is generally often case-oriented and evolves around project work.
