About

Courses of the Breuer Marcell Doctoral School of the University of Pécs are built on the single-cycle MSc programme in Architecture, the multi-cycle MSc programme in Architecture, the multi-cycle MA programme in Architecture, as well as the single-cycle MA programme in Architecture.

The primary task of the Doctoral School is to provide educational programmes of a high standard in accordance with the requirements of the Bologna system to those leading architects with an MSc or MA degree, as well as to those with an MA or MSc degree in an architecture-related field.

The programmes of the Doctoral School engage in fields dealing with the most important concerns in Hungary and, specifically in the Pécs region, the areas of national heritage protection. Heritage protection, taking advantage of the latest developments and technologies, enjoys priority within the highly complex system of architectural tasks both in Hungary and the whole of Europe. Heritage protection, in addition to its architectural and artistic aspects, encompasses the active use of a wider range of scientific fields (civil engineering, structural engineering, geology, information technology).

The DLA in Architecture / PhD in Architectural Engineering programme is offered by the University of Pécs. The Pécs Doctoral School has demonstrated and justified the importance of this highly complex activity over the past six years. However, the need to simultaneously deal with a very wide scope of activities requires a change in the methods applied.

It is in light of the above that we wish to reshape and modernise the structure of the Doctoral School, primarily based on recommendations of the President of the Hungarian Accreditation Committee and the Visiting Committee of the Hungarian Accreditation Committee. Accordingly, in addition to DLA degrees in Architecture, the Doctoral School will also grant PhD degrees in Architecture in the future.

Programme Structure

The programme covers aspects of past and modern building materials science, engineering structures and building frames. Furthermore, it also focuses on areas closely related to the programme"s priorities, such as environmental planning, settlement planning and energy design. In view of the specific features of the discipline and the wide range of subjects – that is, the interdisciplinary nature - of the various fields of research, the course curriculum lays special emphasis on ensuring that doctoral candidates gain the necessary knowledge and competence while also catering to their individual research topics.
