  2. To be exempted from the GFP (IT Component), an ICDL Certificate in English or its equivalent is required.

Program Objectives
  • Graduates are expected to succeed as architectural engineers who are able to apply sound engineering principles to unravel problems related to complex design/projects.

  • Graduates are expected to engage in lifelong learning and contribute to society by designing structurally resilient buildings each embedding a unique signature.

Student Outcomes
  • An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  • An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.

  • An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.

  • An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.

  • An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.

  • An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
