Faculty of Architecture and Design 2020-21 Spring Semester Hybrid Education Planning
Even though we would like to return to the campuses full time with our all units, new mutated variants of the virus and the high number of cases as well as the risk of transmission require all of us to pay high attention to the precautions. As of March 01, 2021, our Spring semester education in Bahçeşehir University will start and our campuses will be open to our valuable students. In this whole process; we are proud to announce that we, as BAU Family, have worked hard to increase the quality of all our education and service processes with our Hybrid University model, which we have developed in accordance with international norms.
In line with the decision taken by our University Senate by prioritizing the health and safety of all BAU members, in the Spring Semester of 2021, we will conduct our lessons as hybrid, as long as the pandemic conditions, which we follow closely, allow us.
In this context, we have completed all course plans as Faculty of Architecture and Design. In the following days (unless there is a different guidance from the Ministry of Health and the Scientific Committee and unless otherwise decided by the Council of Higher Education), all theoretical courses are held online until the end of the semester, and applied courses are started online and if the risk of contamination is reduced to a level that allows us to gather, it will be decided to switch to the hybrid method in a controlled manner. In the light of current data, it is envisaged that the second half of the Spring semester can be taught with the Hybrid method in applied courses.
The statements of the National and International boards and authorities regarding the instant evaluation of the pandemic process are closely monitored, and we will continue to inform you about the reflections of the changes in predictions due to the circumstances.
In addition, all BAU campuses are open during the semester, Computer Laboratories, Model Workshop, Studios, VR Lab and 3D printer facilities etc. (in accordance with all necessary health rules and regulations), will be available for your use by notifying our faculty for student affairs contact person in advance by sending an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
With this understanding, we, as the entire BAU family, have full hope that in this extraordinary period, we will do our best with your moral support, to overcome the process in the best way possible. In this process, we would like to express our gratitude to especially our academicians, our valuable students, the families and all our administrative staff.
We wish you all a healthy, successful and hopeful period with your families.
