When Engineering and Architecture students meet: a French case study
MetadataShow full item record
From the beginning of the 18th century onwards, the discipline of Engineering education split away from that one of architect in France. A renewal in both disciplines occurred after World War II and in the early 1970's when the country was under heavy citizen pressure to change its societal ways. Today, as the expectations and demands of government and industry increase with regard to a better quality of life, the challenge on a more sustainable built environment is also increasing. The disciplines of Architecture and Engineering provide two means of regulating, within this scope, through a wide range of knowledge, practice and innovation. PURPOSE The purpose of our study is to reflect upon the changes in educational practices, at both national and local levels, of a double-degree engineer-architect curricular; these curricular changes have been reinforced in the last five years and we wish to analyse the implemented strategies, practical skills development, and the outcomes for the graduate students.
