During the first year of the Architecture program from Bilkent University, the curriculum establishes foundational knowledge in mathematics, physics, arts and culture as well as in design and architectural drawing. This foundational year reflects the interdisciplinary nature of architecture and allows students to share an intellectual environment specifically within the faculty as well as the university at large. 

The second year curriculum introduces students to topics of architectural history, structural design, and construction of buildings. Design studios rest at the curriculum's core and enable students to apply knowledge learned in these courses to architectural design problems. 

The collaborative design studios in the second year expose students to concepts of interiors, environmental design, urban design, and landscape architecture. They aim to help students understand and appreciate the interdisciplinary character of architecture. 

The third and fourth year courses that follow offer advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in various areas of architecture and develop skills in architectural design. Together with a wide range of electives, these courses allow students to specialize in different aspects of the discipline. Courses on professional practice and summer practices held in offices and construction sites help prepare students for future professional life.
