Through the formation of a basis in all areas of knowledge that traditionally converge in the architecture discipline, the course aims to provide design skills that will constitute a valuable support for students wishing to pursue their studies in many MSc-level programmemes: architecture and urban design, design, planning, conservation and landscaping. If it leads to further architecture studies at MSc level, LM4 class, the course is an integral and essential part of an educational path designed to train European architects according to EEC Directive 85/384. In accordance with the profile outlined in DM 4/8/2000 and related professional activities, as defined by DPR 328 of 05/06/2001 Article 16, the course aims to form an autonomous professional figure capable of "designing simple civic buildings using standard methodologies" and "carrying out direct and instrumental surveys of contemporary and historical buildings¿, as well as collaborating in architectural design at different scales, from conception to completion to management, using his/her analytical and critical skills, within professional design practices in both public administration and private enterprise.

The three-year training course focuses on the practice of architectural design in its various aspects and at different scales, incorporating both humanistic and technical disciplinary contributions. Traditionally structured courses are supplemented by mono-disciplinary laboratories and ateliers, or multidisciplinary laboratories providing opportunities for practical application of theoretical learning, as well as creating learning experiences from the reality of territorial transformation and interdisciplinary dialogue. In the first year, students will follow courses in mathematics, history, technology, representation, and English. There is also a multidisciplinary atelier offering an overview of the subjects - architectural design, urban planning and construction - that encompass the diverse topics and scales which must be confronted in architectural design, from the urban context to the individual building.
In the second year and third year students follow courses in building physics, structures, history, urban planning, restoration, and appraisal, along with mono-disciplinary workshops and multidisciplinary ateliers that address the design problem at different scales, with in-depth exploration of themes ranging from building in already-built areas to realization of new projects, and development of the concept of architectural and urban sustainability. There are also elective courses and related subjects which will enable students to address different design and conceptual aspects, including design of detail, interior architecture, sound design, lighting and energy techniques, materials science, landscape, and social, geographical and economic problems of urban and territorial transformation.
Students will address specific design questions or further disciplinary exploration in the final exam that concludes the three-year programme.
