    About Architecture and Urban Planning


    About the Department

    Department for Architecture and Urban Planning at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, University of Novi Sad, was founded in the autumn of 1996, and today it has over 1,250 graduate engineers in this complex discipline – both technical and artistic simultaneously. Together with the programme for undergraduate studies, the first generation of graduate students was also enrolled, so more than 20 candidates have obtained their Master’s degree so far at the Department, and 11 candidates defended their Doctoral Dissertations. Sixteen years later, one can observe with pleasure the reasonability and the profound sense of founding Architecture at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, where over 2,350 students have been enrolled in all years of studies until today. Department for Architecture at the Faculty has a modern and open curriculum and syllabus based on the union of theory and practical experience, on local influences and worldwide trends, on the harmonious combination of architecture as art and as built environment with the great social, economic, technical, cultural and developmental significance. Beginning with the academic year 2005/2006, the studies have been in accordance with the Bologna Declaration; thus, all the courses are now one-semester long, and the studies are organized following the model 4+1+3. Department curricula at all study cycles were accredited in 2007 as the first ones in the field of Architecture in Serbia.

    Studies

    FIRST CYCLE STUDIES – Undergraduate Academic Studies last for four years, i.e. eight semesters. At the Department for Architecture and Urban Planning, there are two study programmes at undergraduate academic studies:
    • Architecture
    • Stage Architecture, Technology and Design
    On completing the undergraduate academic studies in Architecture, and after defending their graduation thesis, students obtain the degree of a Bachelor with Honours in Architecture (BSc) and they are allocated 240 ECTS credits. On completing the undergraduate academic studies in Stage Architecture, Technology and Design, students obtain the degree of a Bachelor in Stage Design and are allocated 240 ECTS credits.

    SECOND CYCLE STUDIES – Master Academic Studies – Continuing their studies at the second cycle, students decide on one of the four study programmes:
    • Architecture
    • Regional Development Planning and Management
    • Stage Architecture and Design
    • Digital Technologies, Design and Production in Architecture and Urban Planning

    At the study programme Architecture, students can decide on one of three modules: Design in Architecture and Urban Planning, Contemporary Theories and Technologies in Architecture, and Interior Design. At the study programme Architecture, on completing the second semester and defending the Master thesis, students obtain the degree of a Master in Architecture. At the study programme Regional Development Planning and Management, on completing the second semester and defending the
    Master thesis, students obtain the degree of a Master in Regional Development Planning and Management. At the study programme Stage Architecture and Design, on completing the second semester and defending the Master thesis, students obtain the degree of a Master Artist in Stage Design. At the study programme Digital Technologies, Design and Production in
    Architecture and Urban Planning, on completing the second semester and defending the Master thesis, students obtain the degree of a Master in Digital Design in Architecture.

    THIRD CYCLE STUDIES – Doctoral Academic Studies last for three years, and students decide to enrol the study programme
    Architecture or the study programme Stage Design. Lectures are held in first two years (four semesters), and during the third year (fifth and sixth semester) candidates for the PhD diploma elaborate on their Doctoral Dissertation. At the study programme Architecture, on elaborating and defending the Doctoral dissertation, candidates obtain the degree of a Doctor of Science in Architecture. At the study programme Stage Design, on elaborating and defending the Doctoral dissertation, candidates obtain the degree of a Doctor of Art in Stage Design.

    Multidisciplinarity has always been the basic policy on which the Department for Architecture and Urban Planning insisted, and it will continue to be so. In this sense, the accreditation also included the Specialist Studies in the field of Architecture and Urban Planning, in cooperation with other faculties within the integrated University of Novi Sad, other universities in the region, as well as institutions and organizations whose activities can contribute to the quality of educating the future specialist students.

    Department for Architecture and Urban Planning cooperates with all other departments at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, with a range of courses taught at Architecture successfully by professors and assistants from the entire Faculty, especially from the Department for Civil Engineering. All courses and topics related to building and construction are lectured by professional and competent members from different chairs. Cooperation with the experts from different fields and diverse organizations in the city has been developing each year; thus, better results are yet to be expected. From its early age, the Department has had a range of expert projects and studies for towns and villages in Vojvodina, from Sremska Mitrovica to Kula and Apatin, from Bečej old and new, Irig and Bačka Palanka, all the way to Novi Sad; thus, the arrangements are being made for new projects. Department has continually organized annual exhibitions of students’ works. Since these exhibitions have caused enormous interest among the professional and cultural public, some of these exhibitions were transferred to other towns (Sombor, Subotica, Zrenjanin, Bečej, Pančevo, etc.).

    One of the halls on the fourth floor at the Faculty has been adapted into the Gallery named after a professor, “Đura Kojić”, where various exhibitions have been organized throughout the years with large success. Besides students’ works, the Gallery also presents the works from secondary school pupils, as well as works by prominent architects from the country and abroad.
    To make architecture and urban planning closer to students, as well as other interested public, numerous lectures and visiting lectures of prominent persons have been organized in the amphitheatre “Ranko Radović” on the same floor, mostly in the area of built environment, and they are intended for wider professional and cultural public.

    Each year, teachers, assistants, associates and numerous students participate at diverse national and international professional meetings, congresses, symposiums, and conferences, as well as summer schools and expert workshops. Large number of students takes the mobility programmes and enrols studies at the faculties abroad lasting from one semester to one academic year, which enables them to enrich their knowledge listening to the experiences by professors from diverse surroundings.

    Young colleagues who graduated from our Department have won numerous awards and first prizes at different competitions in the last couple of years, both in the country and worldwide, which undoubtedly confirms the high level and quality of studies and acquired knowledge.
