The curriculum of the first semester carries out two projects with guidance and three short ones - one-day sketch, without guidance.
The first concerns the realization of the project of a commercial space, in one of the malls of Bucharest, with the intuition of a feasible profile that would bring an added value to the complex of which it is part.
The second, the design of a restaurant with a specific profile - chosen and argued by the student - and a service kitchen, in an area of offices and other functions in Bucharest.
Short projects, without guidance, have a duration of eight hours and themes connected to the reality of the projects or the society in which we live.

Teaching Method:

The theme is presented throughout the year through theoretical lectures and multimedia presentations. Colloquia are organized outside the university and meetings with specialists in related fields, for information on specific programs, technological flows needed to be taken into account in the project economy but also on teamwork issues related to the specifics of the future profession.
In the workshop, each student continuously benefits from individual and panel correction in the successive stages of the project.
Of particular importance there are considered to be the individual research, site visits, market research of profile products, sketches, examples, preparation and deepening the bibliography.


Individual presentation of the project in front of the committee and colleagues in conjunction with the activity and attendance at the workshop. Presence and activity along the way + Final evaluation of the pieces required through each theme. Individual support of the project with grading by the jury.
