Architecture

Architecture is about providing appropriate shelters for human functions and activities through a comprehensive understanding of our living environment, our society and culture, our history and technology. The aim is to provide sustainable future for the next generation.

Learning architecture allows us to explore the intrinsic relationship between people, culture and city systematically. Research into the site context, building functions, and statutory constrains to provide a solution by developing an architectural design through a process of conceptualization and rationalization which echoes the past and forecast the future in a meaningful way.

We offer a broad range of architecture courses from award-bearing courses providing students with the foundation to study architecture at the tertiary level, to interest courses on architecture and design-related topics and technical courses on the practice of architecture.
