Masters in Arts in Asia 2017. Like the Department of Interior Design, the Department of Architecture belongs to the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture.

This is so not only because the two disciplines are close relatives of each other, but also because it facilitates transfer of students from one discipline to the other if they wish to do so. The principal objective of this education is to teach students the important skills they would need in the future. Moreover, it is thought to be essential that students acquire a sincere love of this profession, if they are to be successful in the future. In this direction, besides obligatory practice in offices or the construction sites, students will be introduced the realities of professional life under dynamic circumstances – may this be within or outside the academic life.
