The architectural underpinnings of our history can be seen in our ancient buildings. There is no denying the fact that across the world, individuals or groups had different methods and styles of building. This program seeks to train you to be able to apply modern techniques and materials in the design of buildings.
The program as a foundation for the Bachelors program also provides you with the basic knowledge to be able to successfully complete the Bachelors program if you opt for it. Most graduate from the program go on to either pursue the Bachelors program or work as technical personnel in construction or architectural firms.
