For the above reasons, the curriculum of the Department of Architecture of Istanbul Medipol University is specifically designed as a new and unique model that integrates architectural studio themes with technology, art, architectural history and professional practice, creating a strong foundation for professional life.
Another important goal of our department is to educate future architects with an understanding of three pillars of sustainability (economical, social, ecological) as well as spiritual and aesthetical bases.
The program also aims to develop digital competence in the early stages of architectural education. Preparation for real professional life is dependent on the early acquisition of modern management techniques in the coordination and administration of human and material resources.
Precisely for this reason, the courses on digital design tools and professional practice start in the first year curriculum. This program is the only architectural program in Turkey that provides these unique opportunities to its students and in this sense, the School of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture at Istanbul Medipol University is the first program that combines design with other disciplines.
Istanbul Medipol University Department of Fine Arts, Design and Architecture will leverage the experience of IMU’s Medical School by establishing comprehensive and distinguished masters and doctoral programs on an interdisciplinary basis, integrating architecture with healthcare. The program shall be the first program in Turkey to offer specialization opportunities in healthcare architecture.
Students in our Architecture Program can elect to do a double major or minor in our “Interior Design” or “Environmental Design” or “Industrial Design” programs.
