The aim of Bilkent University’s Department of Architecture is to graduate students with architectural skills that will enable them to practice all around the world. Design studios rest at the curriculum’s core. Starting from the first year, students participate in the enjoyable learning experience of the design studio through projects undertaken either individually or in groups. In the second year, design studios are carried out in collaboration with other departments of the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture. This collaboration introduces architectural students to the concepts of interiors, environmental design, urban design, and landscape architecture. The following third and fourth year studios allow students to specialize in various areas of architecture. The architectural curriculum comprises courses in mathematics, physics, arts and culture. Also, the courses within the curriculum put emphasis on issues of energy efficiency, environmental concerns, sustainability, and preservation of historical heritage. Students are prepared for future professional life through summer practices held in offices and construction sites.

Graduates of Bilkent University, Department of Architecture, shall have adequate formation that allows them to be employed in local and international architectural offices and related government branches. They can also establish their own practices. The ever-growing nature of the construction sector paves way for young architects to have business opportunities. The graduates of this department who choose to pursue their education through graduate studies will aim at well-known universities around the world.
