Specialisation thesis

Specialisation thesis

 

The specialisation thesis is the guiding principle of the entire study course offered by the Specialisation School.

 

Thesis work is 16 university credits (CFUs) and consists of drawing up an intervention plan related to a specific architecture, a building complex, an urban area, or an area of particular landscape and environment interest.

 

During the first semester, the students are called to choose their thesis theme, with the support of SSIBAP teachers and of a dedicated mentoring activity that can be both in English or Italian. It is possible to either propose a theme of their choice, or draw from the “protocolli d’intesa” (memoranda of understanding), conventions, and networks of national and international relations stipulated by Universitā Iuav di Venezia.

 

Within the two-year period, the thesis subject is gradually developed in the various lessons, seminars and intensive workshops and laboratories. The latter are set at the end of each semester, and are moments in which the student can apply the methods, analysis tools, and intervention criteria that he learned during the courses to his thesis preparation.

Laboratories also represent important moments of exchange between students and teachers, and they are coordinated by the Specialisation School Director.
