Building and Planning (HBP) offers a curriculum that is unique amongst programmes of advanced education dealing with the built environment. In addition to the considerable latitude afforded by the unit system. Building and Planning) The School of Housing. rather than the more narrowly focused concept of a single discipline. Interior Design. the School takes the position that all subjects have a theoretical and a methodology component. building and planning. Building Technology. it is more correct to describe the broad focus of education at the School as a field of knowledge and skills. Urban and Regional Planning.1 PROGRAMME STRUCTURE/CURRICULUM Bachelor of Science (Housing. Laboratory projects 4. the School eschews professional specialism in favour of a broadly based education cutting across both professional and disciplinary boundaries. Studio projects are the keystone of the curriculum providing the essential creative exercises by which all students. no matter their individual programmes. so long as he/she satisfies the minimum and maximum requirements for units to be taken in each subject area and course. engineering or planning are generally based upon a professional training in one of these disciplines. learn to integrate the many diverse skills and forms of knowledge that comprise the total field of housing. Whereas curricula in architecture. all students have the opportunity to major in one of a number of optional programmes. Rather than treating theory and methodology as separate from each other and from other subjects. Studio projects also provide the most important objective test of each student’s proficiency and creativity. These theoretical and practical components are grouped in the curriculum according to the following categories: 1. Construction Management. whereby the individual student exercises a considerable degree of choice in arranging his/her own programme of studies. in their second and third year of study.0 2.2. Courses in theory and methodology 2. As such. building and planning. Research 10 . Studio projects 3. quantity surveying. Further integration is provided by the special treatment given to the teaching of theory and methodology in the School. in so far as they are all relevant to the activities of housing. The structure of the curriculum is based upon the unit system. Both the structure and content of the School’s curriculum reflect the main aim of the School to develop integrative and creative skills across a broad spectrum of knowledge and activities dealing with built environment. to be dealt with as an integral part of each subject area. Both theory and practice are therefore identified in the curriculum as mutually inter related components. The students of HBP therefore draw upon many different disciplines during the course of their studies. cutting across and occurring at all levels of the curriculum. Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying. Practical training 5. each dealing with a particular emphasis on Architecture.

The path to Bachelor of Architecture that is offered by the School of HBP is as shown below: Bachelor of Science (HBP) (Architecture) 3 years (Awarded LAM Part I) Bachelor in Architecture from other recognised universities (LAM Part I) 4th Year 5th Year Bachelor of Architecture (Awarded LAM Part II) 11 . The course comprises of two years where the first year aims at exposing students to a housing design of unique nature as a human settlement concept and also multi-storey building design with emphasis on technological aspects. An important element of the design is the energy efficient consideration as one of the objectives to produce future designers who are energy conscious. conservation or other areas of special interests. In the final year students are expected to do an independent design thesis study of a challenging typology that suits their interest and touches on wider architectural issues.Arch) Programme in the School of HBP is unique among courses offering LAM Part II accreditation. forward thinking and sensitive at exploring architecture design within an array of contemporary issues and styles. This is a continuation of Bachelor of Science HBP (Architecture) or a similar Degree from other local universities or abroad with LAM Part I or equivalent. special technologies. The pre-requisite to enter the course is to have undergone a total duration of 6 months practical training (can be in two consecutive training – 3 months & 3 months). as the two major projects.
