  2. Produce visual information for the adequate communication of design ideas during the project process and of the material and technical characteristics of the work to be built, through the application of resources and traditional and digital graphic expression tools, with creativity, aesthetic sense, clarity and precision in the information, in the local, regional, national and international spheres.
  3. Establish urban-architectural projects from the theoretical analysis based on the knowledge of methodologies and on the understanding of the historical phenomenon from the human, environmental and technological perspectives; to achieve congruent responses to the social needs of habitability, with a sense of belonging and identity manifested in a critical vision, at the local, regional and national levels.
  4. Carry out architectural and/or urban works considering the use of traditional and avant-garde engineering, for the resolution of executive projects and management programs, construction and technical supervision of work, under quality standards and thermal and energy efficiency in adherence to the regulation and official normativity; with objectivity, responsibility, social commitment and respect for the environment, at the local, state, regional and national levels.

CURRICULUM

In Baja California, the most important occupational areas in the architect’s practice are architectural design and construction. In addition to this, aspects related to administration, planning and urban design, the valuation and rescue of built heritage, bioclimatic design, environmental quality and technological advances, both in terms of refers to new construction materials and systems as in computer programs. This situation, which defines the professional profile to be trained at the UABC Faculty of Architecture, involves the acquisition of professional skills that will allow the architect to develop and carry out successfully the activity of the architect.

This curriculum, based on the Model for Professional Competencies, consists of a total of 350 credits, distributed in the three stages of training: Basic, Disciplinary and Terminal, as well as a professional internship program worth 15 credits and social service divided into two stages. The training stages are made up of 42 required learning units that represent 80% and elective ones that together with laboratory stays represent 20% of flexibility. It also makes it possible to carry out linking projects with external sectors that would grant credits in associated subjects and/or in other academic activities.

A relevant aspect of this curricular structure is constituted by the areas of knowledge, which from the academic point of view obey the grouping of the knowledge of the discipline, which allows better monitoring and quality during the process of acquisition of skills and an adequate both vertical and horizontal integration in the curricular structure, specifically in relation to the guiding axis represented by the design area, since its continuous structure allows the knowledge from other subjects to be integrated in the design exercises that are perform at each stage of training.
