Department of architecture in RUET started its journey in 2013. Architecture involves the study and transformation of the constructed environment, from the scale of furniture to the scale of the city. The goal of this new discipline is to equip the student with skill to develop a synthetic thought process of critical thinking and creative problem solving to address all aspects of the built environment in its cultural, social, and ethical context and to meet the challenge of this new millennium.
This shall comprise of the following:
Combining both sides of the brain and promising graduate career prospects that are both personally fulfilling and financially rewarding, architecture degrees are a highly popular and competitive choice. Blending art, science and technology, the subject requires the development of an interdisciplinary skill set – drawing on elements of mathematics and engineering, combined with creativity and an understanding of modern technologies, social issues and cultural trends.
Architecture is the art and science of designing and engineering large structures and buildings. Those who choose to study architecture will have enthusiasm for both the sciences and the arts, and architecture admissions requirements typically consider both artistic ability and mathematical proficiency. Architects design structures fit for human use and therefore are largely responsible for the safety and reliability of these structures. So, students must be prepared to study for a relatively long period before becoming a fully-fledged, licensed architect. Although regulations of architecture licensing vary from region to region, often you will have to commit to at least five years of study and two years of practical work experience.
If asked to answer the question “what is architecture?” many people might simply say that architects design buildings. However, architecture careers often involve a much more varied workload. Much of the time, a practicing architect at a small- to medium-sized firm will also be involved in planning, budgeting, handling financial accounts, negotiating with contractors, ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations on site, and preparing specifications for materials and workmanship.
