The architecture combines both art and science of designing buildings and (some) non-building structures. It is a profession that develops, designs, plans and manages the building and its surrounding context. Architecture is a rich discipline covering a diverse scope ranging from the design of various types of buildings within the urban, rural, community, ecological and regional areas. Architects serve not only as designers but they also help create buildings that respond to human habitation in diverse cultural and ecological contexts. The School offers Diploma in Architecture to candidates who are interested to pursue their studies in a career within the design and construction industry. Students will be exposed to the knowledge and skills required in planning, design and researches for areas such as housing, institutional, industrial, and commercial.
