Undergraduate Programme 2017 – 2018

Think, Design, Build > Architecture

The role of the architect today is to awaken a sense of wonder in the environment we live in, to question how people dwell together and, ultimately, to improve our habitat through creative thinking, innovation design and building techniques.

With this vision in mind, the four-year Bachelor of Social Science (BSSc) degree in Architectural Studies at The Chinese University of Hong Kong takes students on an inspiring journey into the field of architecture via three key concepts: Think, Design, Build.

The undergraduate programme lays the foundation for the study of architecture, serving as a prerequisite for the two-year professional Master of Architecture (MArch) degree that fulfils the academic requirements to become a registered architect in Hong Kong.

Postgraduate Programmes 2017 – 2018

City, Place, Context > Architecture

At a moment in time when half of the world’s population lives in cities, how can the built environment respond to the new challenges associated with this phenomenon? How can architecture, city and people co-exist? These are the fundamental questions that our postgraduate programmes at the School of Architecture, CUHK, aim to address.

Our programmes offer a diversity of design and research agendas ranging from design methodology, history and conservation, and urban design to building technology, sustainability and computational design. The urban conditions of Hong Kong, Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta provide complex challenges for investigative design and research. Both core competence and critical thinking are developed in order to enable our students to create innovative solutions that are still grounded and purposeful.
