The Bachelor's degree program / Discovery of the discipline of "Architecture".
The Bachelor’s degree program lasts 3 years. Students learn how to "make" built and inhabited spaces by combining the wealth of knowledge and skills they have acquired in the diversity and complementarity of the courses offered.
At the end of the Bachelor’s program, students will have acquired an initial knowledge base that will enable them to consider architecture as a comprehensive discipline, directly linked to its environment, geography, society, etc... constantly challenged and questioned by the technical and technological evolutions that we face. Through introduction to research, students will have acquired a particular capacity for observation of phenomena as well as a perpetual exercise of questioning the design process, which is essential for architects who seek to consolidate and expand their knowledge.

The Master's degree program / One discipline, several professions
In the Master’s degree program, students gain autonomy in the architectural project design process and learn to interact with the different players involved in the design / construction process of the project.
They become familiar with the latest building techniques and technologies using BIM (Building Information Modeling) software. They learn how to convey their architectural choices using the most efficient photorealistic rendering tools.
Students are introduced to the wide range of the various major complementary issues of the Architectural Discipline of our time, all of which underlie the diversity of professional practices in Architecture (urban planning and territorial studies, landscape, sustainability and ecology, heritage, design, construction site, graphic design and communication...). In this way, each student jumps on the bandwagon of his or her preferred theme while corresponding with all of the other proposed themes. That is the strength of the discipline of Architecture: one discipline, several professions... In short, this is the essence of the Master's degree program: to offer students all the diverse but complementary professional possibilities of this discipline (studies and analyses, territorial decision-making, project management, construction and site management, heritage, sustainable development, furniture and interior design, communication of the architectural project...).
The Architecture Workshop: ("Large building" Project), urban integration of the architectural project)
The representation of the architectural project: BIM (Intelligent Building Information Modeling) oriented digital tools for architectural representation, topography and digital mapping.
History, theory, sociology, urban planning: Landscape and garden history, history of nature in the city.
Building Technology: Environmental issues, Materials and structures, Construction risk management, Specific construction techniques.
Research: introduction to research, dissertation in one of the chosen fields of study (eco-design of buildings, heritage, urban planning and territory, sustainable and inclusive cities)
The Architecture Workshop: Specialized architecture workshop (eco-design of buildings, heritage, urban planning and territories, sustainable and inclusive cities).
The representation of the architectural project: advanced photorealistic rendering tools.
History, theory, sociology, urban planning: Seminars in the chosen field of study.
Building Technology: Construction site supervision seminars.
Research: Dissertation in one of the chosen fields of study begun in 4th year (eco-design of buildings, heritage, urban planning and territory, sustainable and inclusive cities) - Defense of the dissertation.
Internship: 2-month internship in an architecture firm.
Trip: International trip
The 6th year / the professionalizing year leading to the diploma
The 6th year is the professionalizing year leading to the Architect Diploma. In addition to the professionalization courses, which aim to give students an initial theoretical and technical foundation to prepare them for possible future project management responsibilities, students must complete an end-of-study project accompanied by a dissertation that they must defend before a jury in order to obtain the diploma.
At the end of the course at the School of Architecture in Rabat and under Article 3 of Decree No. 2.16.244 of 22 July 2016, students obtain a diploma recognized as equivalent to national diplomas enabling them to work for the government or in the private sector (opening an architecture firm).
