The Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design in the CYUT was established in 1997. It is the only graduate school of architecture and urban design has PhD program in central Taiwan's advanced polytechnic educational system. The program is designed to give students the academic and professional core knowledge. The program is built on students' existing experience and background to encourage students to develop architectural research skills and technologies.
The School's master curriculum is divided into four tracks: In year 2003, we have Architecture, Urban Design, Architectural Design and Design Management; In year 2004, we changed the tracks into Architecture and Urban Design, Landscape and Recreation, Architectural Design, and Digital Design(closed in 2006). In year 2009, we changed the tracks into Architecture and Urban Design, Landscape and Urban Design, and Architectural Design. The Architecture and Urban Design track and Landscape and Recreation (Urban Design) track, in addition to required courses such as research methodology, design practice, and individual projects, electives include a variety of both practical and theoretical courses, which are offered based on student interests and professional backgrounds. The Architectural Design track is designed for students who come from a non-architectural professional background. It is a post-graduate curriculum for students now in the workforce and its purpose is to provide these students with the additional professional training required to become architects. The curriculum is arranged to offer creative design methodology, programming design, marketing, and relevant professional training required to be professional designers. The doctor curriculum is concentrated on design science methodology, theme research, and seminar. With these tracks, the school offers graduate programs leading to three Master Degree and one Ph.D. Degree.

Second-year curriculum emphasizes various kinds of architectural design, and let students learn professional skills such as structure, construction and equipment system. Third-year curriculum explores the relationship between Architecture and Urban Design, and trains students how to tackle difficult problems in architectural design.
2.Lectures: teach professional knowledge and skills such as Architectural History, Theory, Structure, Construction and Equipment.
3.Design Thesis: After grasping the gist of basic theory and skills in Architectural Design, students conduct individual architectural design project (supervized by a faculty member) so as to let students have the opportunity to synthesize his or her architectural knowledge in the process of planning and designing good architecture, and thus further enhance their abilities in tackling design projects.



Ph.D. in Design Science


In order to cultivate leaders of design profession with a global perspective, the Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design established Ph.D. program in 2002 after the prior establishment of Master programs. The Ph.D. program comprises at least three-year academic research within the framework of this school’s academic education. This program emphasizes theory and managerial practice in architectural, urban, landscape and recreational designs, it explores:
1.Theory and developmental history in architectural, urban, landscape and recreational planning and design.
2.Architecture and Urban Relics Preservation, Architectural Structure, Architectural Construction and Material, Physico-environmental control.
3.Computer-aided design and practice in Architecture, Urbanism, Landscape and Recreation.+
4.Design Managerial Science, Design Policy and Management.


Apart from the four above-mentioned major areas, this program, coupled with both curricula of Arts and Overseas study, provides a full-fledged design education ranging from the education in Liberal Arts to the content of creative knowledge in practical professional design and planning. The professional curriculum of this program comprises the three following types:
1.Lectures and Seminars: teach and explore theory, skill and methodology in relation to Architecture, Urbanism, Environment, Landscape and Recreation.
2.Overseas Study: Ph.D. students are required to study theory, skill and methodology in a related faculty of any foreign sister university for one semester (at least four-month duration).
3.Thesis: supervised by a faculty member, Ph.D. students conduct creative, individual research of a chosen topic based on the theory and methodology of Architecture, Urbanism, Landscape and Recreation.
