Mission

The Mission of the Department of Architecture is very much aligned with the mission of the University. The Department of Architecture aims at providing learning opportunities through teaching and research in the broader field of architecture and especially in the areas of Building Design, Urban Design and Planning and Architectural Technology as well as contribute systematically to the wider social development and the debate on the role of Architecture at a local, regional and international level.

The activities of the Department of Architecture are based on three cutting-edge pillars, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for success. They are the follows:

  • Architectural Education - The Department should provide training opportunities at the following levels: Diploma Degree of Architect Engineer, Postgraduate Programs in the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Historic structures, Environmental and Energy Design and a PhD in Architecture. These opportunities will aim to provide clear benefits to their recipients, through an appropriate studio environment that provides knowledge and development of design skills and contributes to the academic development of architectural practice.
  • Architectural Research - The Department should actively support the development of architectural research and the creation of new architectural knowledge, in the three special areas mentioned above.
  • Professional Practice - The Department should provide scientific guidance and furthermore enhance and extend its presence and impact on European and international policy, through its collaborations with governmental organisations, municipalities, local communities and professional bodies.
  • Contribution to Society - The Department should actively encourage connection to the needs of society, such as governmental organisations, educational institutions, communities and cultural bodies, by increasing the sensitivity of society to a good architectural environment, the sustainable planning of cities and the promotion of architectural heritage locally, regionally and internationally.
