Workshop on Doctoral Education in Architecture, Taksim/Istanbul, Turkey (28-29 November 2011)

24 November 2011

In 2009, a group of academics in the Faculty of Architecture of Istanbul Technical University initiated a pilot study on the Nature and Structure of PhD Studies in Architecture. As a first step, a questionnaire for collecting basic information about PhD programmes in well-known universities was circulated and 20 positive replies from these universities with information about their PhD programmes were received.

Based on this pilot study, a workshop on Doctoral Education in Architecture is being organised by Istanbul Technical University’s Faculty of Architecture on 28 and 29 November 2011. The aim is to establish a discussion platform based on the information that has been collected through the questionnaire and to define the bottlenecks and critical issues in PhD Education in Architecture. Discussions will be focusing on comparison of different types of doctoral programmes in terms of organisational issues together with the aims-achievements, problems and advances.

Besides keynote speakers there will be contributions from the institutions that participated in the pilot study. Papers and discussions of the workshop will be included in a publication later in 2012.
