DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE

 

GOAL ----

The goal of the department is to give students professional training in the related fields of environmental planning, architectural design, and construction management. In order to implement this goal, the department has developed three major instructional and research tracks, which are environmental planning and architectural design, building technology and construction management, environmental control and facilities management. The program seeks to ensure that students have basic professional knowledge and skills. In addition to helping them developing the abilities of independent thinking and a strong sense of professional ethics and integrity, it also provides students opportunities to cultivate individual specialized areas according to their own personal interests.

 

 

COURSE ----

The CYUT Department of Architecture has, as its central responsibility, professional education and training for designers of architectural environment. Architectural design is the core activity of the Department. Design skills are developed in design studios in which a graded series of design projects enable students to demonstrate the practical application of theory. Students also obtain theoretical knowledge through lectures in theory of architecture, history of architecture, architectural technology and architectural practice. Moreover, the flexibility of the program allows students to focus on particular areas to develop their own professional skills. Students' maturity, judgment ability, knowledge, and skills are developed through a broad range of curriculums while students’ creativity is encouraged.
