Teaching Characteristics Teaching in the department are focused on both theoretical and practical training, and develop suitable architecture-related teaching materials for professional institutions.
Basic training and hands-on works in practical training are emphasized in the department. Architectural design and engineering practice are aimed at integration with theories and practices.
Students have better comprehension of knowledge because the knowledge obtained in classroom can be verified in the practical fields.
Students can also develop outstanding architectural talents when they are educated by team work, concept of rule by law, and moral responsibility in life supervision.
Curriculum Planning For undergraduate degree, the minimum graduation credits are 91 credit hours for daytime department.
The course structures are designed in two major categories: architectural design and construction management. The major core of professional courses include architectural design, building construction, history of foreign and domestic architecture, construction evaluation, accomplishing with practical courses such as construction drawings, engineering practice and internship.
The courses are also integrated with computer technology in order to enhance student ability in computer-aided design. The goal of emphasizing on both architectural theory and practice in the department can be achieved.
本科設有四間設計教室，兩間模型工作室，另有評圖、材料試驗室、視聽教室、測量儀器室及電腦教室等，且配有AutoCAD、Revit、Bludcad 、3DMAX、Corel DRAW、PhotoShop 等業界常用的專業軟體。
Faculty and Equipment Currently, there are six full-time faculties in the department, all of them full of much experience both in theoretical and practical areas.
In addition, there are twenty one part-time faculties in the range of architectural design and practical applications. The department facilities include four design studios, two model fabrication studios, design evaluation room, material c, audio-visual classroom, survey equipment room and computer laboratory, etc. The Bludcad , Autocad, 3DMAX, Corel DRAW and Photoshop professional software in the department are commonly used in the architectural industry.
Future Development In order for students have more time to develop their professional technique and also satisfy the policy of Ministry of Education, the three-year high school programs are restructured into five-year Junior college programs. The related faculty, curriculum, enrollment are cooperated together for the better future. The department is supported by Ministry of Education in various ways including funding. According to the necessities of students, they are trained to obtain professional licenses, e.g. computer-aided drawing, engineering surveying, construction management, etc. Students can continuously upgrade to the university level of institutions according to their interests when they are graduated from junior college, or directly upgrade to the graduate school after having three years of working experiences. There are cooperation programs in the department for participating in the development of local community, strengthening the interaction between regions and improving the local cultural and ecological environment.
