Department of architecture

Architects aim to design  buildings and spaces that are inspiring, sustainable, and functional for the people who live and work in them. At LTU you’ll learn from professional architects and designers who have the experience and knowledge to prepare you for a career of your own. You’ll not only learn the “theory” of your profession, but also the “practice,” the day-to-day realities of working as an architect and designer. You’ll tackle real-world projects and learn to interact with clients and confidently make presentations. Your professors are committed to instilling the right balance of foundational knowledge and skill you need to pursue the career you want in the field of architecture.
