Architecture and Urban Development
The consecutive master’s study programme Architecture and Settlement Development with the Architecture Planning specialisation and a standard 2-year study duration follows on from four-year bachelor’s courses with a similar focus on architecture.
During their studies, students will become familiar with the newest scientific and technical findings in all their complex mutual interconnectivity and are guided towards the creation of independent architectural and engineering work. They apply the knowledge gained in individual subjects in individually assigned architectural and technical tasks drawn from the issues of their field of study.
Students extend the theoretical foundation gained during their bachelor’s studies with additional theoretical knowledge. This serves as a basis for specialised subjects from various fields taken according to students’ specialisations, with a primary focus on the studied field of Architecture Planning. Economics subjects are also represented in the syllabus.
During the course of the students’ studies, emphasis is placed on the independent creation of architectural and engineering work. After graduation, students are capable of independently solving even demanding specialised problems and are thus prepared for their careers in architecture or engineering branches in industry.
Key learning outcomes
Graduates from the consecutive master’s study programme Architecture and Settlement Development with a specialisation in Architecture Planning have gained highly specialised (theoretical and professional) knowledge in the studied field. They are capable of applying their knowledge in dealing with the issues of their field and specialisation.
They are capable, within the scope of skills gained during their studies, of solving even demanding specialised problems and so are prepared for their careers in architecture or engineering branches in industry. As highly-qualified specialists, graduates from this programme are able to hold high positions as architects, engineers and managers, and successfully perform the functions required of them. They are equipped with the skills they need to solve even complex architectural and technical problems, and not only during the architectural design of structures, but also during their preparation and realization. They are able to direct the development of urban settlements from the technical and economic point of view, and also from the environmental and aesthetic perspective. They are familiar with the new situation in the development of urban settlements arising from the membership of the Czech Republic in the European Union.
Within the context of professional competence, after gaining the stipulated amount of work experience, graduates of the consecutive master’s study programme Architecture and Settlement Development can gain certification. They are then certified architects capable of directing complex architectural, technical and professional activities and projects, and taking responsibility for their quality. They are also able to take responsibility for the professional management of individuals and groups.
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples
Graduates from the consecutive master’s study programme Architecture and Settlement Development with a specialisation in Architecture Planning have deepened knowledge from both theoretical and specialised disciplines purposefully aimed at this field of study. They are entitled to use the title "inženýr architekt" (abbreviated to Ing. arch.) before their name.
They are familiar with the newest scientific and professional findings in all their complex mutual interconnectivity. They are capable of applying the knowledge they have gained in dealing with the issues of their field of study and specialisation. They are able to independently produce engineering and architectural work. They are capable of independently solving even demanding specialised problems and so are prepared for their careers in architecture or engineering branches in industry.
As highly-qualified specialists, graduates from the programme are able to hold high positions as architects, engineers and managers, and successfully perform the functions required of them. They are equipped with the skills they need to solve even complex architectural and technical problems.
They are prepared primarily for work in state administration. They are able to direct the development of urban settlements from the technical and economic point of view, and also from the environmental and aesthetic perspective. They are familiar with the new situation in the development of urban settlements arising from the membership of the Czech Republic in the European Union.
They are familiar with working with European and domestic public funds. They will mainly find employment in town and country development authorities, and possibly in highly qualified work at construction administration offices. They are prepared for certification by the Czech Chamber of Architects.
They can also find employment within their field in the area of research and development.
Their foreign language skills in the area of their specialisation equip them for possible work abroad.
