Presentation

In the schools of Architecture, the LMD (Licence, Master, Doctorate) resulted in the following structure:

  - A first three-year cycle leading to a diploma in architectural studies, earning Bachelor's degree,
  - A second two-year cycle leading to the architectural state diploma, earning master's degree,
  - A year of vocational training leading to Architect Clearance Degree Graduate of State for the Exercise of the Project Management in its Own Name (HMO-NP) through practical professional immersion of six months in the agencies and other places of production of architecture and 150 hours of theoretical lessons taught in school.

Furthermore, this reform provides better readability of curriculum and increased mobility of students through the system of equivalence of teaching modules.

The first course leading to a “diplôme d’études” in architecture :

The first cycle of ENSAB is characterized by apprehension and understanding of the project. From discovery to autonomy, this cycle prepares students to the diploma in architectural studies worth License (rank +3).

In the first year, the student acquires technical tools of the architectural language and its representation. The educational trips, exercises on scale 1 and the two compulsory internships (L1 and L3) structure the achievements of students throughout the cycle.

In L3, the student must support a research report before a jury. This report is an opportunity for the student to conduct a comprehensive review of its curriculum. Furthermore, the student will develop a particular piece of knowledge for which he found of particular interest.

A jury is responsible for validating the cycle leading to a diploma in architectural studies conferring Bachelor's degree: the jury is made for architects representing half of the teachers teaching units incorporating the project, a representative of a unit education integrating studies report a charge of a cycle leading to the academic unit architect State diploma and two PhD holders including a research professor.

Internships: during the first cycle, two courses must be achieved.
 - The first, called "workers and / or construction" is a 15-day course which aims first making contact with the building of the world.
 - The second, called "first practice" is a one-month internship, which aims to be the site of a first confrontation with the professional world.

 These courses are validated in educational units with a project teaching.

The study report:
In L3 students must make a report of study. Equivalent of a university degree of memory, the study report is an opportunity to take stock of already completed courses, and outside the school, before approaching the two-year master during which students will have to make more personal choices (workshops, seminars) and so to direct their professional future. The study report is a written document of 30,000 characters, possibly accompanied by graphics.

The second course leads to the “diplôme d’Etat d’architecte” equivalent to the Master’s degree :

The second cycle of ENSAB allows the student to define an architectural project in its geographical complexity, historical and social. This cycle prepares students for the state of architecture degree worth Master degree +5.

This cycle prepares students for its professionalism with the obligation to complete an internship of 4 months and the opportunity to go abroad to study.

 In the 1st half of the 4th year, students have a choice of 4 units with a project teaching seminars and 4 teaching units. They must follow a teaching unit construction.
 In the second half of the 4th year, students have a choice of 4 teaching units include a draft education. They will choose two seminars teaching units from five proposed. They must follow a teaching unit construction.
 In the 1st half of the 5th year, students can choose from five teaching units with a project teaching seminars and 4 teaching units. At the end of this semester, they must submit a statement that can be made in project teaching units or seminar.
The second semester is devoted to the preparation of a project graduation. Students will be supervised by groups of teachers. The framework will shop type.

The course: Master of the course, called "practical training" aims to prepare to become a professional and diversification. It is a period of 2 months full-time or four months part time. All stages of production may be the subject of this course: study, project management, project management, construction sites, management ...
The course can be done during the summer period after the master 1.

Students also have the opportunity to also follow a double architect engineering curriculum, or a Master of Urban and Real Work Degree.

The Master Master of Urban and Real Work:

The Master 2nd year (MOUI) lies in the prospect of the establishment in the West of France, a center of excellence in urban planning and development.
This master trains professionals of the urban project exceeding the specialized divisions of the various urban actors. He teaches the whole of a project from conception to operational implementation by using multiple skills, social, technical, architectural, economic, legal, financial.

The double degree "Architect-Engineer":

The educational activities relating to double degree "Architect-Engineer" "Engineer Architect" must allow students to follow the ENSAB for three years, between the 2nd and the 5th year of study ENSAB, a set 'instruction provided by the school INSA Rennes lessons covering the core and the teachings of the first year of study of civil engineering department Urbain from INSA Rennes.
The validation of these teachings, an hourly weight of about 450 hours (30 ECTS), is the certificate of successful double degree "Architect-Engineer" "Engineer Architect" needed to be a candidate for entry into 4th year of Civil Engineering and Urban Department (GCU) INSA Rennes, to obtain the INSA engineering degree.
The educational activities relating to double degree "Engineer Architect" allow students of Civil Engineering and Urban Department (GCU) of INSA Rennes monitor, during their 3rd, 4th and 5th years of study, a set of teachings provided by the ENSAB.
 The validation of these teachings, an hourly weight of about 450 hours (30 ECTS), is the certificate of successful double degree "Architect-Engineer" "Engineer Architect" needed to apply for access to the Master architecture in order to obtain the State diploma architect (ADE).
