The Architecture program of Bahçeşehir Cyprus University aims to offer students an academic environment of communication, freedom and easy access to knowledge, creating a milieu where they could acquire the equipment, experience, ability and skills to practice good, contemporary architecture that deals with not only the basic requirements of the field such as functionality, arts, design and construction but also forms a universal, progressive approach in regards to environment and ever changing social demand.
Included in the curriculum are courses on design, history, theory, building technology, cultural / environmental sustainability, communication media, urban studies, and departmental electives as well as courses on related interdisciplinary fields.
The concept and structure of the program, aim to create awareness on the conditions and norms in which architecture is formed while developing students’ skills for critical thinking, evaluation, using alternative paths as significant components of education; learning / teaching process.
The structure of the program is designed to create awareness on the conditions and norms in which the field of architecture is based upon while developing students’ skills for critical thinking and evaluation. The concept of progressive education the program entails include alternative teaching methodologies that form a lively learning process while instilling necessary principles on the mind of the student.
Bahçeşehir campuses at central locations in Istanbul, Berlin and Rome and Cyprus create settings where cultural opportunities of the city centers, diverse dimensions of architecture and education exist on common grounds with the university facilities. Moreover, exploring world cities and architecture as a method of learning / teaching is encouraged through site trips, summer / winter school and exchange programs.
Civil engineering is a wide ranging profession, including different sub-disciplines, structural engineering, management, materials science, geotechnical engineering, water resources, surveying, and transportation engineering.
The mission of the Department of Civil Engineering of BAU Cyprus is designed to prepare students for professional practice by equipping them with skills and abilities to handle problems in their professional life. In order to qualify as a successful student during the four-year undergraduate program, an interest in subjects such as mathematics, engineering, computer and environment is essential.
