Director’s Message

"The School of Architecture in Rabat trains the architects of the future by aiming for excellence and openness."

The UIR's architecture program has developed through a privileged partnership with the ENS d'Architecture of Marne la Vallée and Nancy. Today, the school has opened up to other academic partners in France, Italy, Germany, England, Portugal, Romania, etc. These partnerships have several facets, notably the mobility of our students for one year in foreign partner schools and of teachers within the framework of intensive weeks dedicated to major themes and issues in the discipline of Architecture, which are highlights of the school's pedagogy.

Focused on teaching the theory and practice of architecture and urban planning, the school offers parallel activities emphasizing the dimension of openness (cycle of conferences, study trips in Morocco and abroad) while relying on state-of-the-art equipment and services (online courses, media library, digital prototyping workshop, material library).

As such, the school enables our students to grasp the concepts and tools adapted to them in order to better understand the realities and multiple challenges of contemporary territories.”
