Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.)

(Course Outline)
The Department of Architecture offers undergraduate & graduate degree in Architecture. The undergraduate program is a five-year curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree. This is a professional degree that fulfills the educational requirements of a licensed architect. The program provides opportunities for general education as well as preparation for professional practice and/or graduate study.

We are committed to the study of architecture as a cultural discipline in which issues of practice, of the multiplicity of social formations in which buildings exist, and of environmental effect are enfolded with the subject matter of building design- construction, space, material, form and use. Architecture arises from the aspirations that diverse individuals and groups have for their *Physical environment, and from the social enterprise of designing and fabricating the landscape we inhabit. It involves individual and multiple buildings, the spaces within them, and the exterior landscape.
