The undergraduate program in Landscape Architecture (BLA) is based on a six-semester curriculum. The first three semesters consist of several cross-disciplinary fundamental courses with students pursuing degrees in Architecture and Interior Architecture. The second half of the curriculum is field specific.
In addition to a cross-disciplinary design foundation, this approach also provides opportunities for seeking double major degrees and a transition between majors. Students who have completed the first three semesters with a GPA minimum of 3.00 are allowed to enter the double major program. At this point students can also apply for a transfer between departments within the ITU Faculty of Architecture; Landscape Architecture, Architecture, Interior Architecture, Urban Planning and Industrial Design.
During the fundamental period students learn about basic design and drafting techniques, architectural design and rendering as well as getting an introduction to landscape architecture, history and theory of landscape architecture, plant materials, natural systems and design, computer aided design and information systems, landscape construction and site planning.
