Education 

Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, BR, BArch, Architecture and Urban Panning

The undergraduate course in Architecture and Urbanism at the Federal University of Minas Gerais is offered in ten semesters and has a curriculum of at least 3,600 hours.

UFMG's Architecture and Urbanism course offers subjects in the areas of graphic representation and architectural expression; theory, history, cultural heritage, structural engineering and technology of architecture and urbanism; architectural, urban and regional planning.

The course trains architects-urbanists as professionals able to meet the demand of society for space agency projects in general; able to teach their craft by reproducing and spreading their knowledge; able to reflect critically on themselves and the world around them; and able to act by modifying and perfecting this reality.

The objective of this course is to prepare professionals able to understand architecture as a built space, in its urban and environmental dimension. It is the role of the architect to work towards the advancement of technique and art as promoters of quality of life, ecological balance and general well-being. Thus, it is up to the professional to develop projects, construction and maintenance of buildings, architectural ensembles and monuments, landscape and interior architecture, physical, local, urban and regional planning, and other related services
