The architectural profession, one of the world’s most established, is continuously evolving and being redefined. Architecture, once identified as simply the practice of construction and the design work behind it, especially during pre-modern times, today encompasses an intellectual field as well. The architectural profession, being one of the most important components of the building sector, incorporates many other fields. Many disciplines are included within its domain, such as sustainable and ecological design, building structure and materials, history of architecture and restoration, urban design and planning, interior design, landscape design, construction techniques, philosophy, art, etc. However, architects are not restricted to these but may work in any of a wide range of fields extending beyond these as well.
At the Okan University Department of Architecture, our aim is to train students to become creative and modern architects who have a firm grasp on contemporary technologies, and who possess historical and social awareness, sensitivity towards the environment, and a sense of ethics. Our educational model is based on praxis (learning by practicing) and focuses upon developing the leadership skills and entrepreneurship qualities necessary for prospective architects. By incorporating working architects’ active contribution into the design education, we bring students into close contact with the professional sphere from the earliest phases of their education, thus fully preparing them for the careers they will pursue after graduation.
The English Program of Architecture aims to accomplish the aforementioned goals by means of a program that focuses equally upon both theory and practice, carried out under the guidance of specialized instructors. Particular care is taken to ensure that students are equipped with the latest knowledge regarding energy and the environment. Following a year of English language preparation classes, students take four years of architectural courses, all given in English. Thus students graduate not only with the professional skills needed for a successful career in architecture, but with the advantage of knowing a foreign language too.
The Okan University Department of Architecture aims to train its students to become architects who have internalized the concepts of architecture, who are qualified in foreign languages, who possess the qualifications required by the sector, and who are able to be competitive at the international level.
