Faculty of architecture

The Faculty of Architecture prepares  BA and MA degree specialists in the specialty of Architecture. The launch year of architectural education in Armenia is considered 1921, when engineering education was adopted within Yerevan State University, and in 1928 seven  graduates of its Technical Faculty  were awarded with the qualification of the  architect. In 1930 the Institute of Construction was established on the basis of the Technical Faculty with its first provost and renowned architect Miqael Mazmanyan. In 1933 the Institute of Construction  was transformed to Polytechnic University and in 1974 the Faculties of Architecture and Construction and Engineering Construction were formed on the foundation of Construction Faculty. With the RA Government decree on 11 July  1989 those faculties were merged and the University of Architecture and Construction has been created, known as YSUAC since 2000. The Faculty of Architecture developed its unique face and occupied a special place in Armenia's engineering education the evidence of which were  the diplomas won in international competitions and contests during the years of Soviet Union and at the time of  Armenia’s independence.  The equivalency of diplomas of the Faculty of Architecture is officially recognized in France. Here renowned architects engaged in practical  design and experts from leading construction companies are teaching as well as representatives of state and local governing bodies contributing not only to close cooperation among external stakeholders and employers, but also to the integration of educational, research and practical processes. Faculty has 121 lecturers, 75 are full-time employees, 6 are doctors of science and 37 have earned their PhD degrees while 19 has the title of the professor, 33 are associate professors and 22 are assistant professors.
