Bachelor of Engineering in Architecture

at the NCUT College of Architecture and Art

 

 

Introduction

Bachelor of Engineering at NCUT is a 4-year undergraduate program aimed in providing a well-rounded pre-professional education with a solid introduction to the discipline of architecture. Our compulsory courses introduce to students the foundation of architect’s profession by combining theoretical knowledge (e.g. architectural physics, mechanics, history, urban-planning theory), with practical skills improvement (drawing and sketching, computer aid design, studio design etc.). Students learn through academic lectures, practicing in design studios, taking part in various research, and activities, and completing professional trainings. The College provides internship positions in design institutions in Beijing, where students have the possibility to get an insight into architect’s job and to gain a hands-on experience from working in a Chinese environment.

Students who want to pursue graduate studies in the field of Architecture are welcome to join our 2-year Master of Architecture program to gain a professional degree in Architecture. Those interested in architectural engineering can continue studies by taking the course of Master of Engineering in Architecture.

 

 

Program objectives

The program is aimed at providing a well-rounded knowledge in the field of architecture. It is intended to develop practical skills of designing and drawing, to boost creativity and open-mindness, and to enhance critical thinking and analytical approach of future architects.

 

 

Program plan

Program of studies is planned to progressively introduce to students the foundation of architectural knowledge which includes understanding of advanced mathematics, architectural mechanics, physics, and construction. It also includes familiarizing students with different ways of expressing the design intent, aesthetics concepts, drawing and sketching, and computer-aided design (modeling programs).

During 4 years students deepen their knowledge and develop designing skills to acquire qualities and technique of an architect.

The final year is spent on completing an internship and preparing independent design project culminating in the defense. After submitting the project, performing the presentation and passing the defense, a student receives a Bachelor degree in Engineering.

 

 

Courses characteristics

Apart from the major required courses which provide the core architectural knowledge, program has a wide range of elective courses. That enables students to have highly varied individual programs. It brings opportunities for finding, or pursuing one’s own interest among subjects such as photography, costume design, furniture design, and many others.

In addition to professional courses, all taught in English, we offer Chinese language classes and lectures on various topics related to China. Our students not only learn the characteristics of Chinese architecture, but obtain a comprehensive understanding of contemporary China.

 

 

Learning environment

We want to create a thriving and supportive learning culture in an engaging environment where students feel connected to teachers, staff and other students. Students will have an opportunity not only to learn, but be part of a positive community where they can collaboratively feel valued and have a constant opportunity to grow. We organize many design related activities, during which international students cooperate with Chinese colleagues resulting in improved cross-cultural communication skills. We also provide students with opportunities to use the advanced laboratory equipment including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), 3D scanners, 3D printers, and laser engraving machine to boost creativity and technical skills.
