The Master of Architecture at the Szechenyi Istvan University is offered to students who want to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to practice architecture professionally. The programme consists of two years of study, based on design studios, including individual and team-work. 


Our aim is to create a student-centred environment, where peer-to-peer learning is realized via the connection of students, expert academics and design professionals. 

The curriculum is structured on the series of Design Studios to provide students with an experience in architectural design, integrated with classes that bring an understanding of arts and crafts, building technology, sustainability, architectural heritage, urban theory and design. 

International workshops play a significant role in our educational system, for widening the professional network of our students and also introducing real-scale building experiences.
