Faculté Architecture

Born in 2010 with the integration of the Lambert Lombard and Saint-Luc Wallonie (Liège) higher education institutes, the Faculty of Architecture - with its 800 students and 85 teachers - has now rounded out the University of Liege's teaching menu. The Faculty of Architecture's future graduates will on the one hand profit from the methods and experiences the two institutions have acquired over the course of time, and on the other from the University's didactic and research structures.

The Faculty of Architecture will award diplomas in Civil Engineering (Architecture) and a Masters in Architecture. Open to numerous disciplines, this Faculty is fully inscribed in the ULg's policy of transversality. Its eduction programme is arranged in such a way as to train students in the specificity of architectural processes. It is centred on the notion of 'The Project', as a creative, innovative and pragmatic process, consisting of an exercise in drawing different strands together in order to understand the real life milieu in all its complex dimensions. It sees itself as being both generalist: offering a good general education and developing the abilities to understand ever more diversified specific domains, and profession orientated: offering access to the diverse jobs in the domain of architecture.

Towards these ends the teaching on the one hand privileges a direct relationship with the students, by being based in particular on the development of their personalities, and on the other offers a diversified educational programme, at the level of the subjects taught as much as in the forms of teaching (lectures, project workshops, modules, seminars, group work, etc.); it integrates responsive, artistic, intuitive, rigorous and technical approaches, and leans on very diversified means of expression.
