Course Description

Architecture is a social art as well as an artful science which involves erecting buildings, structures and outdoor spaces to allow the man-madecomponents to fit in harmony with the environment while promoting health and well-being. An architect’s design could extend from simple individual houses, work places to communal and urban living spaces of the society. The programme aims to equip students with sound knowledge and skills in architectural design processes and technological aspects such as services integration in their design projects; application of building by-laws together with sustainability issues into designed buildings. It also includes study of architectural history and cultural practices which will enhance their awareness and sensitivities needed for holistic architectural education.
