As a professional program in architecture, Department of Architecture of National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) has been regarded as one of the best architecture educational institutions in Taiwan.
|1991||The department was established as Engineering Technology Research Institute of Architectural Design Technology course of study group.|
|1994||A two-year program was founded.(stopped admitting new students in 2008)|
|1996||Converted into “The graduate of architecture program of engineering technology”.|
|1999||An In-Service master program was founded.|
|2000||Establish College of Design.The architecture and design program of engineering technology transferred from Graduate Institute of College of Engineering and College of Engineering to College of Design, and become the current Department of Architecture and Industrial and Commercial Design.|
|The department started to admit new students and combined the four-year program with Ph.D. program.|
The courses of undergraduate program prepare students for the future in the field of architecture. It emphasizes on developing professional design abilities through a series of design studio courses. The graduate program provides opportunities for advanced study and training potential leaders in both professional and academic in the architectural field.
Our department also offers special programs to enrich its curriculum to promote internationalization and enhance English proficiency and international perspective. There is an exchange program between NTUST and California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Besides, our department will continue to extend its invitation to the scholars worldwide.
In order to improve the domestic architectural industry environment and architectural engineering technology, to enhance engineering quality, to promote international technical exchange, and to assist the internal status of Taiwan’s architectural industry, our department dedicates to the integration of theoretical and practical applications and interdisciplinary issues. Because of the changes of architecture, our department is also devoted in the application of information technology, ecological engineering methods, prevention of disasters, and sustainable development. We hope to explore a new future for our graduates
