The student elaborates under conditions of autonomy its diploma project for an architectural object in a specific site. The architectural project should integrate adequate solutions for the structural design, the constructive and engineering problems, managing the coherence of the esthetic, functional and technical criteria, as well as a minimum environmental impact.
Individual study with pluridisciplinary consultancy offered by a group of specialists belonging to the Technical Sciences Department.
Public presentation of the diploma project in front of a pluridisciplinary jury with international participation. The correct solution for the structural design, the constructive problems and the engineering requirements, integrated to the overall architectural concept, are evaluation criteria.
The task of selecting the relevant bibliography belongs to the student.
