  • Developing a ‘creative culture’ is one of the important challenges for the 21th century and Architecture stands at the center of it. Architecture will make our lives rich and beautiful in the future. The goal of the Department of Architecture is to educate students who acquire abilities to design human environments such as architecture and cities in a sustainable way. Architecture, which encompasses both liberal arts and science, is widely open to everyone unlike other engineering fields, as architecture creates and combines social culture with technology and art.
  • The Department of Architecture started to provide a 4-year-course as well as a 5-year-course in 2011. This new system guarantees students to have more opportunities in diverse ways to have a future career in the field. In detail, the 5-year-course is for the student who aims to be a licensed architect much like other professionals like a doctor or a lawyer. The 4-year-course is to study more general areas of architecture and this course leads to careers in such fields as Construction, Construction administration, Interior design, Traditional architecture, Urban design, Graduate Department, and Government agencies or Housing. The courses especially place an emphasis on practical studies and follow the standard of the UIA (Union International des Architects).
  • The Department of Architecture has global-level professors who have excellent academic experience and capability for research and teaching. The Department of Architecture also has a leading educational environment as evident in the CAD room, Design room, Model room, Materials lab and Individual design studio space. This environment fosters students’ dreams and passion for design.
  • The KIU Department of Architecture is ranked in the top 5 among 140 universities in Korea for the licensed number of architects among its alumni - a total of 245 licensed architects. The Department of Architecture has also taken the Grand Prize 8 times at the ‘Daegu Architecture Festival’ for the past 20 years despite there being 15 other universities in this region. The Department of Architecture students also won the most prizes at the ‘2010 Gyeongbuk Architecture Festival’, which is a regional festival in the area.
