About

Architecture is the art and science of building. The word ‘architecture’ was derived from Latin word ‘architectura’ and Greek word ‘arkitekton’, which mean ‘master builder’. As a trained professional and very often the lead player in building projects, an architect is entrusted with transforming the client’s need for space into reality. An architect is usually involved in all aspects related to the design, construction and commissioning of a building project. In the private sector, an architect may be employed in an architectural consultancy firm. After gaining suitable experience, he/she may decide to set up his/her own private practice.

The Bachelor of Science in Architecture (Honours) programme serves as Part I of the architectural education on the pathway towards the registration as Architect. As one of the accredited architecture courses in Malaysia, the programme is designed to cater for students who wish to pursue the career of architecture and practice as architects in Malaysia. For candidates without the requisite pre-university qualification, they may choose to complete the Diploma in Architecture programme first before they are promoted to the degree study on credit transfer.

Candidates for architectural studies are expected to have an interest in art and design, an ability to appreciate form and space, a love for heritage and culture, as well as an ability to appreciate all the five human senses. Students in this programme go through lectures, tutorials, laboratories, group discussions, seminars and studio works in which they learn draughting skills both manually and by using computer aided design (CAD) tools. Subjects covered in the programme include Design Studios, Design Theory, Construction Technology and Materials, Structural Studies, Environmental Science, Building Services, History of Architecture, Building By-Laws, Digital Modelling, Architectural Drawing etc.
