GOAL ----

The Department of Architecture and Graduate School of Architecture aims to provide students with professional training in urban design, environmental planning, architectural design, and interior design. We provide students with professional required and elective courses to cultivate individual specialization according to their interests. Our goal is to foster "the most sought-after talents in the industry" with the ability to learn independently with "knowledge and skills", "aesthetics and creativity", and "attitude and vision".



The CYUT Department of Architecture has, as its primary responsibility, professional education and training for designers of the architectural environment. Architectural design course is the core of the curriculum, which develops students with design skills through a graded series of design projects. Students also absorb practical and theoretical knowledge through lectures courses associated with green building, physical environment design, facility application, construction technology, 3D computer-aided design, history of architecture, design methodology, and professional practice. Moreover, the flexibility of the curriculum allows students to focus on particular professional areas to develop their expertise. The broad range of curriculums also cultivates students' maturity, judgment ability, and creativity.

Students could obtain official course information of the current academic year from the website "Query on curricular information" (https://cts.cyut.edu.tw/CTS0006?lang=en-US).
