Registration Number (Non-Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance):252460
Design is at the heart of the BA (Hons) Architecture degree.
The designers have been working in design studios to create imaginative and practical building designs. History, theory, construction and environment studios are largely integrated with design projects in the studio. The studio is a co-operative and productive environment for sharing ideas, techniques and experience which supports students in discovering their own approach to design.
The aim is to help students acquire a complete tool kit of skills for architectural design and production. From the outset, students learn to apply drawing techniques to the investigation and communication of architectural design, alongside computer-aided design and hands-on modelling and construction. The excellent workshop facilities have laser-cutting and rapid-prototyping equipment for exploratory work supported by highly-skilled technical staff.
The diverse teaching staff encompasses individuals with a range of international qualifications, research and experience devoted to practise-based and research-engaged teaching. The School is committed to socially and environmentally sustainable development, both locally and globally, aiming to equip the graduates with the analytical and design skills to match up to the challenges of future architectural practice.
