Along with the process of globalization, the production and use of urban and built environment is becoming increasingly important role in the architectural disciplines. No longer possible is to think architecture independently without social, cultural, political and economic dynamics within this global environment.
Architecture and urban problems and their solutions for the production of accurate analysis will be possible by addressing architectural design processes as a whole within the scopes of economic, cultural, social and political aspects. For this, a common communication language between these different areas is needed.
In this context, Architectural PhD program’s objective is to produce inter-disciplinary perspective and build a common ground for the researchers from different areas like architecture, interior design, and urban design, under the same roof, by examining these different disciplines and their relationships.
Architecture is a field that plays an important role in shaping the built environment and accordingly our life. Thus, the field of architectural knowledge is a dynamic field that is constantly evolving and updating.
Architects play an important role on the design and production of the environment, where we live in and which it shapes our lives. However, architects should have adequate and up-to-date knowledge, and environmental concerns in their profession as well as being able to analyze the dynamics and actors that shape their occupational field.
Therefore, architectural PhD programme aims to analyze today`s world production and use of the built environment, and the role and responsibilities of the profession of architecture in this area with an interdisciplinary approach.
The graduates from our Architectural PhD programme may continue their academic carriers as lecturers and/or researchers.
