The academic bachelor study programme Urbanism is designed to provide contents of higher education qualification of an architect-urbanist.
The programme’s basic objective is to qualify professionals for less demanding tasks in the field of urbanistic planning and design and spatial management. An architect-urbanist’s responsibility derives from the purposes and meaning of urbanistic design, quality of urbanistic lay-outs, their harmony with the environment with respect to the natural and urban landscape, which is in public interest.
The profile of an architect urbanist is extremely complex, because architect-urbanists have to be capable of thinking about people and their spatial issues from different perspectives: from regional development criteria to architecture and vice versa. They have to derive from modern theoretical and technological knowledge, upgrade it, and endeavour to find the balance between the functionally-technical and the artistic component of the urban creation.
The educational profile of an architect urbanist combines knowledge from the technical, social science and humanistic fields, with additional components of capability to design and create space or build urbane structures
