Qualification Awarded Diploma (Dip Arch) in Architectural Engineering (Integrated Master, 5-year program)
Level Of QualificationProfessional Degree (Diploma) in Architectural Engineering (2nd Cycle Degree).
Offered by Department of Architecture
Mode of Study Full Time or Part Time
The aim of the Department of Architecture is to educate future architects, providing them with knowledge and sensitivity to the built environment of the European and Mediterranean region and to become an outstanding academic center for studies in the wider European context.

The program duration is five (5) years and leads to the professional degree (Diploma) in Architect Engineer.

Education and training leading to diplomas, certificates and other evidence of formal qualifications referred to in Article 2 shall be provided through courses of studies at university level concerned principally with architecture. Such studies shall be balanced between the theoretical and practical aspects of architectural training and shall ensure the acquisition of:
1. an ability to create architectural designs that satisfy both aesthetic and technical requirements;
2. an adequate knowledge of the history and theories of architecture and the related arts, technologies and human sciences;
3. a knowledge of the fine arts as an influence on the quality of architectural design;
4. an adequate knowledge of urban design, planning and the skills involved in the planning process;
5. an understanding of the relationship between people and buildings, and between buildings and their environment, and of the need to relate buildings and the spaces between them to human needs and scale;
6. an understanding of the profession of architecture and the role of the architect in society, in particular in preparing briefs that take account of social factors;
7. an understanding of the methods of investigation and preparation of the brief for a design project;
8. an understanding of the structural design, constructional and engineering problems associated with building design;
9. an adequate knowledge of the physical problems and technologies and of the function of buildings so as to provide them with internal conditions of comfort and protection against the climate;
10. the necessary design skills to meet building users’ requirements within the constraints imposed by cost factors and building regulations;
11. an adequate knowledge of the industries, organisations, regulations and procedures involved in translating design concepts into buildings and integrating plans into overall planning.

Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading
Independent Design Thesis: The Independent Design Thesis project is the culmination of the Architectural Studies at Frederick University. It is a synthetic work with a high level expectation of exploratory, analytic and synthetic approach. Independently of the selected topic, the Design Thesis project should lead to a completed and high expectancy result, taking into consideration of all the parameters that constitute an architectural project, that is to say from the functional approach of the composition, to the integration to the environment, the bioclimatic output, the constructional plenitude and possibility, the artistic and aesthetic value etc.
