The first aspect: the extent to which the department’s infrastructure requirements are appropriate, such as spaces, equipment, an internal and external environment that is appropriate to the requirements of the student and the educational process.
The second aspect: the extent to which the educational process fulfills the requirements of the architecture specialization, the skills they have acquired and the ways to develop, their observations about the nature of the relationship between the syllabus and the process of explaining the necessary information and the skills appropriate to apply this information.
