Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering

The Associate of Science in Architectural Studies programme, offered by the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, provides a sound education and training for students to become technically competent personnel in the architectural profession.

The programme seeks to prepare students for a role that is complementary to that of the architect in the preparation of design and production information for building projects, and provides a broad-based academic foundation for further academic and career development. Graduates may apply to enter full-time architectural studies degree programmes offered by CityU and other local institutions, or pursue further study with credit transfer in overseas universities.
