Characteristics of the educational program: Graduates receive qualified theoretical and practical training in the field of development and typology of residential and public buildings. The educational process is focused on disclosure and improvement of creative individuality of each student. Training of bachelors is based on humanitarian, natural and scientific, architectural and art disciplines, various topics of architectural design. The students develop the necessary professional skills to make independent planning and organize the designing architectural activity, learn to develop sketch and working projects of architectural objects of various types according to the functional, aesthetic, structural and technical, economic and other requirements, taking into account the standards, regional particularities and global trends for aesthetic formation of spatial environment for comfortable human life. Students gain proficiency in main stages of exterior and interior designs of residential and public buildings and facilities, architectural environment design, gain experience in visualization and presentation of projects designs. During their training students get practical skills in developing and presenting architectural ideas by means of graphics, breadboarding, multimedia, get skills in working with artistic and photo materials. In the process of training students study modern software systems and technologies to create and process two-dimensional images (Adobe Reader, Adobe PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, Paint), three-dimensional architectural objects (ArchiCAD, SketchUp Pro, AvtoCAD), develop multimedia products. Graduates learn the history and current trends of architectural industry, study the peculiarities of profession of an architect, participate in educational and social programs, promote architecture in society.
