EAC was started by renowned architects in 2004. At the heart of its courses, the EAC anchors the sustainable development of cities, responsible architectural creation and environmentally-oriented urban planning and landscaping.

Its mission is the training, research, and dissemination of architectural culture.

What does education for impact mean to THE HONORIS MOROCCO NETWORK?

Hassan Filali, CEO of Honoris United Universities in Morocco, speaks for the Moroccan network of Honoris-affiliated institutions:

“Education for impact means having an impact on the lives of our students through an educational model which does not only provide them with a recognized degree but gives them the skills that employers require. We put ourselves in the shoes of parents investing in their children’s futures and ask ourselves what their return on investment is, by closely observing the job market to monitor salaries after graduation. Our commitment is to add value to our students by equipping them with the resources and skills to be successful in their careers or entrepreneurial endeavors.”

Student Lifecycle


  • Admission to the first year is open to holders of the baccalaureate, after an examination of their academic record, an admission test and an interview
  • Students can also join EAC through parallel admission in the third year of architecture study. These students would have successfully completed two years of study in a public or other publicly recognized architecture schools
  • EAC’s enrollment more than doubled in the last four years


  • The courses offered at EAC focus on theoretical and practical approaches to architecture and landscaping. These are combined with compulsory internships, which offer the possibility of exchanges and the continuation of studies abroad
  • Support for foreign students is in place to make their integration to their new academic environment as comfortable as possible. The school also provides support in finding accommodation and in administrative procedures


Pillars of Honoris Impact Framework
EAC Impact

Network: the power of regional and global collaboration through institutions and partnerships and the positive impact.

  • Since its creation, the school has worked to bring together the different ecosystems that nourish architectural and urban thought and culture in the academic, professional, associative and media world. This openness to the national, regional and international level provides its students the assurance of an innovative, complete and aligned training
  • EAC has a large network of partnerships, both locally and internationally, which exposes students to opportunities in engaging with like-minded thinkers who have different levels of experiences and enlightening perspectives on various topics –academic and otherwise
  • This openness to the national, regional and international level has contributed to the development of the school, allows it to be in phase with contemporary architectural developments and offers the student the assurance of an innovative, comprehensive and aligned training with international requirements
  • Key EAC partnerships include The University of Angers, Sorbonne University and National School of Architecture of Versailles

Learning: quality education and developing world-class African human talent with an entrepreneurial mindset and 21st century skills to thrive in the globally disrupted world of work.

  • At EAC, initiation into professional practice is an essential part of student training. To this end, EAC continually forges lasting relationships with various economic operators, i.e., administrations, analysis and research laboratories, construction companies, and architectural firms
  • Students, researchers, industry professionals, artists, and public authorities work together in maintaining a school of excellence and adapting to contemporary requirements
  • EAC follows a pedagogical approach based on workshop teaching where students practice architecture under the supervision of professional teachers, with a supervision ratio of 17 to 20 students per teacher
  • The EAC has two plastic arts workshops, dedicated to the activities of sculpture, drawing, painting, calligraphy, etc. Here, students learn the techniques of making study models which relate directly to the projects and themes addressed in the architecture workshops

Innovation: education must continuously evolve to meet the challenges of the fast-changing and unpredictable globalized world.

  • The profession of architect or landscape architect requires many entrepreneurial skills. In this sense, courses in project management and professional practices are included in EAC programs
  • In an African context marked by demographic growth and a strong rural exodus, EAC provides specialized learning courses to allow architects, town planners and landscapers to support regional and national development and changes
  • Dedicated to the mastery of digital technologies, EAC facilities are equipped with all the hardware and software necessary for the design and representation used in architecture and town planning

Employability: commitment to enhancing employability of graduates.

  • It is important to EAC that its students experience professional immersion throughout their studies; that is, learning in a professional environment through internships
  • The Career Center offers services and advice to properly prepare students for successful careers. The resources offered guide students through self-exploration, career exploration, and mentoring. Also offered are workshops and coaching on setting up a good CV, and connections with the job market

Communities: delivering a positive social impact in local communities.

  • EAC offers scholarships to students who cannot otherwise afford the tuition fees
  • EAC participates in various community initiatives with schools, such as their collaboration with the Casachabab association to provide a buffet to raise funds that were dedicated to the renovation of an elementary school in the region of Imintanoute. In addition, Hajar Morjani, a 3rd year architecture student at EAC, in collaboration with Casachabab, organized a charity photographic exhibition. The funds collected were donated to the association for the renovation of a school in the region of "Imintanoute".
EAC proudly presents their affiliations and partnerships:


Zineb HAROUCHI, Student at EAC/Exchange student at ENSA Versailles

"I decided to go on a 6-month exchange not only to have a new study experience, but also to try a new personal social experience. My exchange gave me an insight into studying architecture abroad and brought a new dimension to my course. I decided to step out of my comfort zone, to discover a new world that is unfamiliar to me and although I faced difficulties, the important thing is that I gained a new and fulfilling experience.”

Walid NOKTA, EAC and Sorbonne University Alumni, Urban Planning Degree

“This Master's degree allowed me to deepen my knowledge in urban design and opened me up to new horizons. The global reputation of Sorbonne Université and quality training provide me opportunities in international organizations. Punctuated by various practical cases, I have acquired new skills on current and major issues that are a real added value to this profession and I am excited to make a real difference”
