Outline of the Department of Architecture
Vitruvius, a Roman architect who lived in the first century B.C., characterized architecture as “the synthesized art of strength, function and beauty” in his book.
The Department of Architecture is now put into the categories of engineering. However, the essential purpose is to create spaces which directly support human life and therefore are closely related to humans. For this reason, architecture is recognized as a unique discipline which requires highly artistic cognition in addition to engineering knowledge.
Industrialization and functionalism have succeeded in making our life more convenient than ever before. On the other hand, our life has become wearisome. A main goal of architecture is to revitalize human nature and make our life fruitful.
The Department of Architecture of this college conducts its curriculum on the basis of the thoughts mentioned above. Firstly, students learn social science which is related with architecture. Secondly, they learn the basic engineering knowledge of architecture. Lastly, they learn specific subjects using various experimental facilities, for example, CAD (Computer-aided design).In the Fifth year, students are encouraged through seminars and senior research activities to accomplish their specialty based on acquired knowledge.
