What Does The School Offer Architecture Students?
We offer a comprehensive course of study in the discipline of architecture, allowing graduating students to successfully operate in a contemporary building industry.
We offer a studio environment, a workshop for creative work, which is constantly available to students as a work place/base, supported by the conventional lecture and tutorial formats. A strong architectural community is developed in the school through exhibitions and publications. In addition, the school offers a range of facilities such as:
an Audio-visual laboratory with facilities enabling experimentation and offering technical support.
student computing laboratories containing PCs and graphic work stations with CAD and 3-D modelling.
an acoustics and lighting laboratory providing measuring and testing facilities for assessing acoustic and lighting performance in building materials and construction.
materials testing laboratory for measuring the performance of building materials a Resource Centre housing literature, records and other material related to architecture and the building industry.
Given the diversity of architectural practice, our course provides the education essential to become an architect, but at the same time allows students to pursue their own specific interest or talent through options and minor studies focus areas.
The course is organised in the following interrelated subject streams:
architectural design (a major part of a student's time is taken in design subjects),
technical studies (which includes building technology and building science),
architecture and culture (includes theory, history and cultural studies),
communications (both writing and visual communication such as drawing), and,
professional studies (what you need to know about the law, contracts and management)
