The main goal of the Faculty is training specialists capable of solving professional tasks in the field of modern architecture, design of the architectural environment and urban planning. Our students receive broad expertise in cultural and professional areas along with practical skills in the field of creating architectural concepts, planning the organization of spaces, construction and operation of buildings and structures, landscape design and architecture. Our students get competencies in theoretical and critical thinking and computer modeling of architectural objects.

The profession of the architect is one of the most interesting, creative and sought after. Compulsory practice in specialized organizations is included in the learning process, which opens up additional employment opportunities after graduation. Almost all of our students begin to work in their field immediately after graduation, and the architectural workshops of the city submit applications for the most talented and creative students long before they complete their studies. Many students begin their independent architectural activity still within the walls of the university, participate in professional contests, and become their laureates.

Teachers of the Faculty of Architecture are architects with impressive work experience; among them are practicing designers, candidates and doctors of science, heads of design organizations in St. Petersburg. Faculty teachers are true professionals in their field; they constantly keep abreast of the latest trends in the global architectural progress. The quality of education at the faculty meets the most stringent international standards, which has been repeatedly confirmed by the victories of our students in international competitions and reviews of student works.

The competition to enroll to our Faculty is high, but if you are a creative person eager to establish yourself in architecture, we’ll be happy to welcome you to our faculty.

See you at the Faculty of Architecture!

I did my undergraduate studies at SPbGASU, where I had the best teachers with the most interesting lectures. And now I am happy to continue as a graduate student under their guidance. What I really like about the university is the attitude towards international students. I have enjoyed support from the first day here and the university has become my home.

SPbGASU offers a very high level of architecture education and is situated in my favourite city – Saint Petersburg. I would definitely recommend this university to applicants from other countries because here you get real knowledge and not just ‘a piece of paper’. I like architectural design most of all, it is our main subject. I also enjoy sculpture and drawing classes. We have great teachers and they are always helpful, responsive and empathetic. I don't feel like a foreigner in Russia!

At first, I studied architecture in Tbilisi. Then the question arose as to where to study next. I decided to go to St. Petersburg because there are more opportunities here. When my parents learned about my decision, they were happy and supported me.

I like studying at Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering. The teachers at the university are competent and love what they do, they know how to set the right tasks. I heard a lot of positive feedback from the guys who came to Tbilisi for a workshop. They told me that training is at a high level here, and it is one of the best architectural universities in Russia.

At SPbGASU you find a high level of education and good people, all paths are open. I really like that the University provides opportunities to take part in workshops abroad and gain new experience.

I entered SPbGASU in 2019. I enjoy attending the lectures, our lecturers explain everything clearly and are willing to help students in difficult situations. All the teachers I have met here are very amiable and interested in the students' achievements. The teaching is informative. For well-known reasons, we have been transferred to distance learning, and we are looking forward to resuming our face-to-face classes.

I admire Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering. I found out about it just by searching on the internet for the best architectural university in Russia. That was back in 2015. I am now in my final year at the Faculty of Architecture. Since my first year here, I have been very impressed by the knowledge and experience I gained during my studies. It is an outstanding university – not only academically, but also in terms of extracurricular activities.

In my first year, I had difficulties with the Russian language, but the teachers and the Council of International Students helped me to solve my problems.

Since our university has had an e-learning platform for a long time, switching to distance learning and online communication with teachers during the pandemic was nothing new. I am proud to say that I will soon graduate from one of the best architecture and engineering universities in the world.
