1. get advanced in responding to more complex building programs and start analyzing the requirements of the program in relation to the context and users;
2. are expected to have produced a series of experimental concepts and projects, where they have a change to test their organizations and formal attributes, before arriving to the final project;
3. will be able to evaluate social and cultural issues in relation to their conceptual framework and relate their projects with environmental aspects, like the qualities of the building site, its topographic and climatic features;
4. will be able to define the relation of the project with the structural systems and building materials
