Specialised Studio

FAST-NGA057Acad. year: 2022/2023

The specialized studio has a direct link to the diploma thesis both with its focus and via pedagogical guidance. It deals with a more demanding programme appropriate to the master’s level of studies. It acts as a lead-in to the diploma thesis either via a related topic or through a solution within a wider context - the area from which the diploma thesis will arise. Simultaneously, it is a comprehensive, independent project.
