The interdisciplinary Minor in Integrated design, Architecture and Sustainability (IDEAS) responds to a need to further reinforce the integration of sustainable architecture questions within the Master Cycle in Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering. It focuses on issues of energy consumption and the use of natural resources within the global framework of integrated design. The objectives are also to strengthen exchanges and synergies between the three institutes of ENAC with a list of interdisciplinary classes selected from the existing course offering. Moreover, the Minor creates a new orientation to prepare second cycle students more explicitly for a doctoral work within the Doctoral Program Architecture and Sciences of the City (EDAR).
The IDEAS Minor is fully in line with the restructuration process of the different research and teaching fields of the SAR, as well as with the interdisciplinary exchange possibilities within ENAC.
