The architectural profession is an interdisciplinary field, including wide range of fields such as sustainable and ecological design, building structure and materials, history of architecture and restoration, urban design and planning, interior design, landscape design, construction techniques, philosophy and art. At Okan University Department of Architecture, our aim is to train students to become creative and modern architects who have a firm grasp on contemporary technologies, and who possess historical and social awareness, sensitivity towards the environment, and a sense of ethics. 

Our educational model is based on praxis (learning by practicing) and focuses upon developing the leadership skills and entrepreneurship qualities necessary for prospective architects. By incorporating working architects’ active contribution into the design education, we bring students into close contact with the professional sphere from the earliest phases of their education, thus fully preparing them for the careers they will pursue after graduation.
