Candidates for any Bachelor's Degree Program have to pass the national entraceexamination organized by the Ministry of University Affairs.
Candidates for a Master's Degree have to pass a written and oral exam organisedby the Graduate School and the Department.
Apart from course work in the classroom, candidates may have to undertakespecial field trip for their projects and training in government ministries and de-partment, state enterprises or private companies before starting their thesis.
On the 8th floor of 10-Storey Architecture Building is located the LandscapeArchitecture design studio - workshop with the pleasure environment among the3rd-5th year landscape architecture students. In addition, there is a reservedresources corner in the faculty library consists of journals, thesis, maps, architec-tural plans, aerial photographs, cassettes and video recordings of seminars andspcial lectures. Computer center studio equipped with pesonal computers andworkstations for sketch design, graphic design, architectural and landscape ar-chitectural design, automated mapping and geographical information systems.
The library system consists of three major libraries:1) The Main Library : The main library is part of the Academic Service Institute.The library provides large selections of textbooks, journals, CD-ROM Database,microfilms, and microfiches of various disciplines.
