The Department of Architecture organizes summer schools for students from Tongji University in Shanghai who wish to develop their interests in the historical-artistic, architectural, economic, engineering and communication fields through an intensive summer course at the University of Florence.
This educational offer, set up in 2017 and assorted year by year, is based on some series of lectures and study visits, capable of providing specific insights and enrichments based on the academic path of each group.
Mhoursover, thanks to the collaboration with Tongji University, between 2014 and 2017 the Department of Architecture has developed a programme of short semester courses for students and professors which is currently in progress with the China Education Association for International Exchange.
The summer schools run for approximately 20-30 days and are held in July and August. The courses are identified on the basis of programmes agreed between the University of Florence and Tongji University, with particular reference to the cultural opportunities offered by the Tuscan and Italian territory.
The summer school programme includes lectures and study visits to museums, monumental complexes, villas and historical gardens, as well as companies. The lectures are mainly held at the educational sites (classrooms/laboratories/libraries) of the departments of the University of Florence involved in the courses.
The topics covered range from architecture to design, history of art, history of architecture and the city, sciences for the economy and business, political sciences, civil and environmental engineering and information engineering.
The official language of the summer school is English, whose knowledge is required to profitably participate in lessons and study visits. Some educational content may also be provided in Italian, in any case ensuring an optimal understanding for all participants through translation.
The educational material provided by the professors/tutors shall be made available on the platform moodle: https://e-l.unifi.it/
A certificate of attendance will be issued upon completion of the course.
Next activation of Tongji University summer school: summer 2021.
