Architects do not just build houses - they create visions of how space can be used. An architect is responsible for every aspect of the building process - from the initial idea to inspecting the finished building.
Architecture studies contain modules on physics, chemistry, geometrics, and statics amongst other scientific subjects. Parallel to this, the creative aspect of the degree program will be covered by practical and theoretical design and art classes, e.g. landscape design, developing blueprints, or construction and art history. Computer science is an increasingly large part of studying architecture, as most work nowadays is done with computer aided design software. Energy-efficient building is another topic in many architecture degrees.
Architecture graduates work as architectures, independent consultants, or interior designers.
