So here are some tips on how to make the most of your Architecture faculty.
KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO HELP HELP THE FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE BETTER
Many people are entering Architecture faculty without knowing what they are getting into. In general, most of the incoming students do not even complete the first year. Others go a long way in the course, but not sure if it really is what they crave for their professional lives.
And the faster you “find yourself”, the faster you’ll have the chance to become deeply committed to your studies. But you will quickly sacrifice yourself to maximize learning, knowledge, and value all that is taught in the course.
However, it has become rare to find architecture students faithfully committed to college and its training. And with competition and numbers and graduates on the rise, it is precisely these [the truly committed] who will have the best chances of professional placement and will be handpicked to work in large firms and even in projects abroad.
If, throughout college, you are deeply committed to what you do and to being a future architect, you should have no reason to worry about what will happen after college.
HAVE A BETTER FRIEND (A) AUXILIARY TO GET BETTER THE FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE
The undergraduate degree in architecture is formulated to promote teamwork. All structured so that one student learns from the other. Those students who do not collaborate with peers in group work and only attend classes on presentation days are missing out on one of the most important aspects of their education.
It’s incredibly powerful to find a quality friend to work with together. In this way, everything is much easier to overcome the difficulties and challenges of each one throughout the course.
During university, you and a good friend can:
– Share books, work materials, computers and other equipment;
– Helping each other in matters, especially those that have greater difficulty;
– While one advances the model the other can go to the stationery to buy the missing materials;
– Each one can pay attention and help in the project of one and the other.
– Studying together for the exams
By sharing your academic experiences and believing in the success of the other, you will certainly be collaborating highly with yourself. And thus, increase the chances of taking better advantage of the faculty of architecture.
LEARN WITH EVERYTHING
Do you know when the college promotes lectures and meetings with experienced professionals who have much to teach? Most or even attending or at the moment of final questions are not present. Everything is a reason to learn and we must suck everything to the maximum.
Students having some time judged as “free” or going to sleep or devote to some unfinished task or worse, do something completely useless
The learning of architecture is in practice, but also through observation, hypotheses and much questioning.
One of the best ways to get the most out of architectural college is to know that you can learn everything – even the worst projects or students in your class. Other people’s designs consist of design decisions that you have not taken and this situation can lead to reflection. Knowing whether or not to take that same decision from a colleague, you can make the choices in your future projects in a more thoughtful way.
The cool thing is to pay attention to peer project evaluations and note down everything you’ve learned in all of your class presentations. By actively pursuing what you can learn, your ways of designing and understanding architecture become more and more interesting.
EXERCISE AND EAT HEALTHY FOODS
Yes, we know how exhausting the content load and the amount of time demanded by the architecture faculty is. However, you must reserve even a few minutes of the day for a healthy life. Make sure that your academic achievement will be positively impacted by physical exercise.
Exercises that make you sweat and heart beat faster influence directly on the brain and with that in learning. They can provide faster and more dynamic reasoning. In addition, physical exercise is a good way to relieve all stress and stress of student rhythm.
Another important issue is food. It’s okay that most students are young, but you know you do not sleep well nights sleep and the rampant consumption of coffee and other types of energy drinks. Good nutrition, as well as physical exercise, are stimulants to good brain function. Try to eat more fruits, vegetables, salads and good proteins (like fish) without forgetting carbohydrates, being the energy fuels for all daily activities – including studies.
Make sure that by including physical exercise and good nutrition in your routine, you only have to gain in your performance in college.
MAKE STAGES AND TRAVEL
In a difficult period to find work and even stage seems a little surreal. But when they appear, enjoy the best. Try to work or train with experienced professionals, even on school holidays without a scholarship or restitution. Knowledge at this stage of life is the most important.
And if you can travel, do it. Meet places, explores important architectural points, enjoy new architectures and new conceptions. All this will greatly facilitate your life as a student and also a professional future.
