ConceptMajor in Architecture

The study and design of our environment: from furniture and interior spaces to buildings and urban spaces

Our aim is to research and develop the field of "holistic Design" for architecture and cities from interdisciplinary viewpoints, based on specialized knowledge and advanced technology. Additionally, this program focuses on fostering specialized professionals (architects, architectural engineers, etc.) that are equipped with the knowledge of holistic design, as well as educators and researchers with advanced planning and development skills. The predecessor of the current program, "the Architecture Field, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture" was a fairly large-scale organization that graduated many successful students. This was made possible by the high enrollment rate from undergraduate schools and other departments and universities. In recent years, this trend has become increasingly evident, and Major in Architecture is constantly seeking young students with a passion for architecture.
