Department of Architectural Engineering



Architecture is the science and art of shaping the built environment and establishing habitable and enjoyable communities. The architectural engineering program is a five-year course designed to equip students with a sound knowledge and understanding of building design, landscape design, structure, construction, history of architecture, heritage conservation as well as many other related subjects.

Program Goals

The main goals of the architectural engineering curriculum are to enable students to:

1. Demonstrate basic philosophy and ideology of architecture.
2. Coordinate environmental studies in design proposals.
3. Comprehend and apply the knowledge of social and cultural studies in design proposals.
4. Comprehend and apply the knowledge of science, mathematics, and technology.
5. Comprehend and apply the knowledge of architectural practice and management.
6. Conceptualize, conceive and coordinated design in the realm of contemporary issues and challenges of built environment.
7. Communicate, demonstrate and implement the architectural solutions clearly.
8. Propose the architectural design in the context of modern technology and engineering.
9. Design and evaluate the architectural design solutions through computers.
10. Analyze the design critically and foresee its consequences at the occupational stage.
11. Apply the problem-solving approach in conducting experiments, analyzing and interpreting data in proposed architectural design.
12. Work independently as well as in teams across technical or professional activities.
13. Team with multidisciplinary professions engaged in building design and construction process.
14. Identify, formulate and solve design management problems.
15. Comprehend and apply the professional and ethical responsibilities in architectural practice.
16. Identify and adopt the market trends to compete in the professional market.

Because of the multidisciplinary nature of the curriculum, graduates are qualified for employment in a variety of areas. They can work, for example, as designers and construction managers, or join city planning or community agencies and governmental authorities. Alternatively, they can become building contractors. As graduates are trained in problem-solving, they are able to adapt to a range of jobs in both the public and the private sector.
