Programme overview

The architecture blends science and art, and it is present in all the spaces around us – our home, neighbourhood, cities we live in. The significance of architecture is more than evident.

The main skill of an architect is the ability to create safe, functional, and aesthetically pleasing buildings or dwellings. At KTU, the graduates learn that a building is not only a place where people live and work but is also an important part of our surroundings that makes an impact on how we live.

Our students learn using contemporary technology and knowledge of historical, aesthetic, socio-cultural and ecological contexts. KTU graduates become the architects that can create buildings for any purpose, shape the landscape, analyse and design the spaces for the future.

Learning from internationally renowned scholars and practitioners you will analyse and design projects both from user and architects’ perspectives using structural, social, aesthetical, ecological, and economic research. In your studies, you will learn how to visualise the innovative architectural design and urban planning solutions, to generate creative ideas and implement them.

Our graduates can create individual projects and work closely within a team, to coordinate and lead projects, as well as work according to BIM methodology together with other construction participants.

  • You will be taught by the experts awarded with the highest national prizes
  • Possibilities of joining internationally renowned research groups
  • Talented students can join an advanced study path of KTU GIFTed Community

While studying at KTU Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture, together with students of the civil engineering program, you will participate in the Joint Project module, during which you will work in teams, collaborate with professionals and gain practical experience More about the Joint Project in this video.
