The final oral exam consists of an individual interview through which the knowledge and the critical understanding of the constructed architecture (1st Dublin descriptor) will be verified in relation to the project. The interview will also test the communicative and learning / reasoning skills, the clarity of the exhibition and the use of the specific terminology of the discipline (4th, 5th descriptor of Dublin).
