pd-fbThe Master in Environmental Building Design is a specialized, post-professional degree developed to train architects in the new skills and knowledge required for environmental design and especially in the design techniques with which those skills must be integrated into the practice of architecture. The one-year course of study includes coursework on building performance simulation, integrated building design, building envelopes and systems, lighting, daylighting, and the theory and practice of environmental design. Coursework is complemented and extended by a Performance Design Workshop and then explored in an intensive Environmental Design Studio in the early summer.

logo_uni_ferrara-189x126The new Department of Architecture at the University of Ferrara currently promotes and coordinates both research programmes and educational activities, the latter managed until a few years ago by the Faculty of Architecture, active since Academic Year 1991-1992. While its history goes back little more than twenty years, the Ferrara School of Architecture offers a wealth of events, outstanding choices and a reputation gained nationally and internationally.
The school focused on the direct and collaborative relationship between students and faculty, engaging in recruiting young researchers and lecturers, even from the professional world, then placing many in a stable academic career.
