WORKSHOPS ARE THE BEST PART

The international workshops have been very productive as I have learnt a lot so far, they are totally the best part of the MCH because we as students push our knowledge and skills to the maximum to learn in a short time period. The quality of the professors has been impressive and all of them have taught us something different architectural related.

SPECIALTY IS THE KEY
The program and the experience exceed what was imagined, nothing negative. In addition to the workshops, the specialties also project and make architecture. A very balanced program between theory and practice. An experience that changed my understanding of the role of the architect and what I want from the profession.
