Bachelor of Architecture

PROGRAMME OUTLINE

Architecture is the art and science of building. It’s activities encompass the design, development and planning of the built environment as well as managing the construction process. Architects play the key role in creating buildings and habitats that serve as integrated solutions to issues and contexts as diverse as design, research, practice, construction, socio-culture, human behaviour, history, and the environment. An architect’s design could extend from working places and simple individual living, to communal and urban living of the society. Such role demands highly professional and ethical individuals in creating better built environment. The Bachelor of Science in Architecture programme at UTM is designed to produce individuals that can fulfil this role.
