UNICA's Master of Architecture program aims to train a professional figure qualified at different scales in architecture and urban planning and identifies design project as a a fundamental qualifying process, synthesis of cultural values and technical skills.
Students will develop the ability to competently attend to the transformation of landscape and city, to the recovery and restoration of the existing heritage - historical, traditional and 'modern' - and to master tools for the control and management of construction processes. With this in mind, the Course is divided into three curricula - Architecture, City and Society; Historical Architecture and Project; Architecture, Construction and Sustainability - which provide for teaching largely developed through laboratory design training activities, mainly distributed among the disciplinary sectors of Architectural and Urban Composition, Restoration and Technical Architecture, integrated by those of related disciplines: historical, social, economic, urban and technical.
The program completes the figure of architect already trained in the three-year basic degree: a figure who is required a professional contribution that is expressed through critical-operational procedures and guidelines aimed at planning, designing and managing interventions of modification of the 'existing', in order to improve the quality of the landscape and the built environment.
The program is limited to a maximum of 80 students, subject to passing an admission test scheduled in the first ten days of September of each year.
