Architecture and urbanism
The study program of Bachelor Academic Studies, with its teaching content and the application of modern methods of education, creates and educates highly professional staff who will apply the acquired knowledge in all areas of creativity in the fields of architecture, urbanism, construction and design. In that sense, the teaching of the first level of education of architects is designed to include teaching in the field of technical-technological sciences, social sciences and humanities, which provides a fundamental basis for further professional and scientific training of students.
The outcome of the learning process is the acquisition of basic qualifications of architects that enable the continuation of studies in master's academic studies of architecture in the country and abroad who have similarly structured study programs and access to the labor market in areas and levels of work in accordance with acquired knowledge and skills. Completion of basic academic studies enables the employment of graduate students in the status of associates in a number of professions in the field of architecture, urbanism and architectural technologies.
Classes are conducted through lectures, exercises, consultations, preparation of seminar papers and practical work of students, according to the curriculum and content of individual subjects. At the lectures, with the use of appropriate didactic tools, the planned material is presented, but on that occasion, students are also shown the research trends in the field. In the exercises that follow the lectures, students deal with the subject area through work on specific project tasks or research topics, thus coming into the most direct contact with the subject matter. Exercises can be auditory, laboratory, computer or computational. Exercises in basic subjects that directly deal with the problems of architectural and urban design have a consultative character and are based on personal contact between lecturers and students.
Depending on the nature of the exercises, the size of the group is determined. If individual contact between teachers and students is necessary for the organization of classes, then the exercises are organized in small groups, with a significant fund of classes. This is especially true for basic subjects, which deal with issues of design, architectural or urban planning, and basic training.
