Higher Diploma in Landscape Architecture
Programme code DE114502 - subvented programme
Full Time - 5 semesters (Normally 2 to 3 semesters during one academic year)
The programme lays a foundation of both design philosophy and technical knowledge for students who intend to pursue the landscape architecture profession, providing the background training in basic design skills, planting design, landscape architecture theory and history, technology, and visual communication, for the students to practise or to advance to further studies in landscape architecture. It equips students with technical aptitude, professional knowledge and skills together with the necessary legal and managerial knowledge, professional language, leadership qualities, interpersonal and other generic skills, initially at a para-professional level, via the blending of theoretical knowledge and practical application, to enable them to pursue careers in the profession of landscape architecture. It also aims to cultivate a holistic approach to design education that encompasses both conceptual and professional concerns leading to graduates capable of independent decision-making.
This programme is designed with an emphasis on generic and language training, whole-person development and workplace experience to better prepare students for further studies and employment after graduation.
