It is an immense source of pleasure for me to welcome you to the Department of Architecture and City & Regional Planning (CRP). The Department offers B.Arch degree (5-year) in Architecture and BS (4-year), MS (2-year) and PhD in City & Regional Planning (CRP).
Our faculty strives to grip prospective students with a broad spectrum of knowledge and technical skills. Our aim is to produce highly skilled and technically sound City and Regional Planners/architects who are well-equipped with the practical knowledge and experience of dealing with the increasing number of problems and issues at urban and regional scales with futuristic approach and ground realities. Concurrently the Architecture program emphasizes a studio based design skill acquisition process where students of architecture work towards their own goal through a problem solving situation under the supervision of highly competitive professional experts from the field of Architecture. In addition to that we enable the students to become efficient urban managers and decision makers to tackle the emerging challenges in the field of Architecture and City & Regional Planning (CRP).
Our department has established educational links with international community of Planners, such as International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISoCaRP), The Netherlands and respective departments of Japanese institutions namely Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tohoku University and Aichi Gakuin University. We are progressively engaged in the process to establish exchange programs with School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP), University of the Philippines.
