Architecture is one of the most sought-after professions in both our region and the world. The graduates of this department will gain knowledge related to their field learn to present the solutions/suggestions that these problems require.
Architects not only address aesthetic issues in the structures they design, but also have to consider the ergonomics, comfort, accessibility and health and safety of their buildings. Our Architecture Programme aims to ensure the continuous development of the educational spectrum that will ensure competence in relevant fields in accordance with the modern-day requirements.
Apart from working as a freelance architect in their own workplace, architects can also work in multi-purpose institutions. Graduates can find career opportunities in many industries including: interior design, urban planning and construction management. Architects can also specialise in construction management, urban planning and design if they wish to pursue a graduate degree.
When I visited university, I was immediately captured by the creative atmosphere, as if I was in another world, amazing in its splendor! ARUCAD is not like all those typical universities that I visited earlier. Teachers reveal exactly talent, without loading us with knowledge that will not be useful at all later. I have never seen such a vibrant and colorful university. This is the best university, due to the atmosphere, which literally penetrate, crossing the threshold of this marvelous place.
