Bachelor of Science in Architecture

Why study

BUiD’s BSc in Architecture is designed to provide research-led teaching which leads to critical and independent learners. The undergraduate course emphasises the specificity of space and place expressed in integration and acknowledgment of its context. The programme’s modules explore sustainability in architecture, green buildings, energy efficiency, building codes and regulations, and building indoor environments, and they depict the cultural and ecological conditions that shape the built environment. Students are encouraged to find their own responsible roles within the architecture profession. The course considers the role of sustainable materials and state of the art technology as integral parts of architectural concepts with emphasis on the importance of occupant experience.
