For those who want to become an architect, it is not enough to have only the vocation of drawing, but to study and learn the technical concepts for this area. Although it is not necessary, a student always aims to study at a college that is best when it comes to the chosen profession. And architecture is no different, art is connected with the culture and urbanity of each country with the history of the city.
Attending a high quality school can be a good introduction to the architect’s future. That’s why we’ve listed the best colleges and universities in the world and Brazil. These schools were selected according to specific criteria: academic reputation, employer reputation and research impact.
In the list of the best universities for the study of architecture appear two Brazilian universities, the University of São Paulo and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
