Courses in Architecture Studies

Architecture is a concept that most people are familiar with, even if they do not understand everything that goes into designing a building or structure. In order to become an architect, students must complete classes, earn a degree, and become certified.

If you are wondering how professionals in this field complete their education before and after graduation, you should be asking, “What is a course in Architecture?” The simple answer is a course is a specialized way for student to get required instruction. Possible architecture studies courses include sustainable architecture, real estate development, sketchbook drawing workshops, and interior design. These classes are meant to supplement the student who already has a strong foundation in the basics.

It is helpful for even well-established architects to pursue additional coursework, even after becoming involved with a design firm. Courses sharpen their creativity and inventive nature while also allowing students to pursue new topics to stay on top of the competitive market.

If an architecture course is part of a four year degree, the cost may be reduced. However, solo courses may cost more or less, depending on where the student enrolls.

Taking a single course does not an architect make, yet these classes are still vital to the learning process as a whole. Such courses allow well-established designers to meet the expectations of their current employer or provide the leverage the person needs to negotiate a higher salary. The right courses also allow job seekers to find the position that fits their demands.

Perhaps the most convenient thing about individual courses is the capacity to be completed remotely via online learning opportunities. Combine on-campus and computer based classes to fit your schedule and get the additional education you need. Whether you are pursuing a four-year degree or want to bone up on interesting contemporary architectural concepts, you can find the coursework that is ideal for you online.

Rationale of the Training Course - Eco-Cities: Policies for Sustainable Energy

Half the world’s population now live in built-up areas, with an estimated 60 million people being added every year. This rapid urban growth leads to environmental degradation and excessive demands on services and infrastructure. Energy consumption has increased drastically. To address this it is necessary to develop sustainable urban energy policies and best practices in efficient land use, transport, sustainable buildings and sustainable development overall.

Post Carbon Architecture: designing the next generation of buildings Track leader: Andrea Rossi 5 months, full time in teams Mission

The objective is to design buildings with low technology (in terms of the physical plant) and to work with the form and the materials as new agents of performance.

Theme

The real estate and the construction sectors are responsible for 50% of global CO2 emissions. Growth forecasts indicate that over the next 20 years, built areas will increase by 50%, which will have a significant impact on the resolution of the environmental crisis. Despite the great attention paid by international politicians (The Conference of Parties, Europe Roadmap 2050, Architecture 2030) towards the de-carbonization of our society, to date building professionals and the construction industry lack the knowledge and skills needed to develop buildings with zero impact....

A new interdisciplinary field of design, researching the transformations of architectural, urban/regional space of the emerging "information age", explores the dynamic interaction of architecture/urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks. It develops scenarios for the interplay of public urban and public media space.

The products of these alliances of urban/regional and media networks, of architectural and media space, are bastards: ambivalent spaces that are at the same time analog and digital, tactile and abstract, material and immaterial, expanding hyper-sensuality in the time- and placelessness of media flows. These hybrid spatial morphs act simultaneously in urban (local) and media (global) space and mediate between them, unfolding the undefined space between the local and the global, occupying the vacuum between local place and global space. Within the inversions of identity (communication), within the fluid ever-changing densities in the knitted networks, fused analogue/digital cultures are idensified.... [-]

The Building and Public Works program, specializing in Architectural Techniques and leading to an Attestation d’Études Collégiales (AEC), is based on two fundamental subjects; construction which involves; building science, knowledge of materials and proper procedures required to achieve every element of a building, and drafting which constitutes the instrument by which the Architect or the Civil Engineer expresses his ideas to the client as well as to the contractor who must execute the work. In addition, the student is introduced to proper graphics language for each: the client and the contractor.Advantages and benefits of the programThe training is purely technical. Its focus is on learning computer assisted drafting and cutting edge building technology, allowing for immediate entry into the workforce;The size of the classrooms is kept to a minimum (10 to 12 students per class). This allows us to ensure that individual attention be given to each student, to follow respective learning procedures emphasizing the importance of communication and autonomy as a result;After having completed just sixteen (16) months of training (four consecutive sessions) students are ready to enter into the workforce;...
