This major aims to produce internationally qualified architectural professionals to support Hong Kong's move to a knowledge-based economy and a world class city. The programme also seeks to provide a basis for continuing professional development, and encouragement for professional specialization or higher academic study, particularly for holders of associate degree or higher diploma in architectural studies looking for articulation with the corresponding full-time bachelor's degree programme.
The Programme aims to offer a well-balanced curriculum with emphasis on the technological aspect of architectural design and construction. It is also designed to equip participants with the concept of full integration between various disciplines within architectural studies and in particular, the importance of integration between architectural studies with other trades within the building industry, including building service engineers, builders, developers, surveyors and property managers.
In addition, the programme aims to provide a suitable foundation for the educational development, within an academic environment, in order that students may reach their maximum potential. This foundation is achieved by attaining a balance between the intellectual, vocational and the practical constituent elements and by fostering an attitude of enquiry, confidence and professionalism.
