Thus, its objective is to deliver a high-level curriculum leading to a new practice of architectural design adapted to the context of the Mediterranean and African region.
The architecture program at UIR is developed in partnership with the School of Architecture of the City and Territories in Marne-la-Vallée and the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Nancy (ENSA de Nancy), two schools of architecture in France.
The architecture program at UIR is characterized by the teaching of the theory and practice of architecture and urban planning. The main objective of this program is to train architects who are capable of carrying out a variety of professional practices and who are ready to take on new missions to respond to the sociological and ecological complexities of the world around them.
Studies at the International University of Rabat also foster interdisciplinarity with other departments (Renewable Energy, Culture, Civilizations and Political Sciences, etc.) and thus allow students to better understand the complex realities of our contemporary world (overpopulation of cities, pollution, environmental concerns).
