Innovative educational processes

In order to respond to the needs of the individuals and society, architects need an extremely broad education. That is why the program of architecture at IBU attempts to provide fundamental understanding of society and culture, materials and techniques of construction, the significance of the natural and built context, historical process, critical thinking and the diverse forms of creative expression.

Internship Procedure

The courses “ARC 201 Internship – In Architectural Studio” and “ARC 301 Internship – In Construction Company” are registered in the 3rd semester (1st semester in the 2nd year) and 5th semester (1st semester in the 3rd year).

Students must complete a 60 days of summer practice, of which is 30 days in Architectural Studio and 30 days in Construction Company.

We advise students to do the internship during the summer break between the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 5th semester, and also at the end of the 6th semester. Previous practice has shown that after the completion of the first two semesters, students usually do not have enough technical knowledge for doing the internship. Taking the internship in this period will not have the desired outcome for the student.

Students are advised to fully engage in seeking the appropriate internship opportunity for themselves. The University is not obliged to provide a student with the company to do internship, but will always guide the student so that he (she) finds one easier and faster. The best practice in the previous years was to search for such companies in the student's birth place or the place of residence and its surroundings.

The single requirement for the acceptance of the internship is the Internship Chairman's consent. Observations from internship must be documented and presented in the form of a clear and concise technical report (Internship Notebook), which the student brings to the Internship Committee for evaluation. The company must send two more documents to the University's address via post: Company's Evaluation of the Student and The Internship Acceptance Form. The former directly affects the student's grade from this course, whereas the latter serves as a proof and acknowledgement that the student has really done the internship.

Internships permit students to interact with professionals in the fields of work in which they may one day have careers. Students are expected to learn about a real business and work environment and get involved in many aspects of designing process. In addition, students are generally expected to:

  • Begin to work effectively as part of a team, developing interpersonal, organizational and problem-solving skills within a working environment, exercising some personal responsibility.
  • Apply theoretical knowledge gained on the Faculty to the concrete Projects
  • Actively participate in, reflect on, and begin to take responsibility for, personal learning and development;
  • Internship coordinator
    For all Internship related questions,
    please contact our Internship Coordinator,
    Erna Husukic.
