Program Description

Architecture Engineering


To meet the requirements of the local and regional labor market with qualified engineers, the bachelors program in Architecture was introduced within the Department of Architecture in the 2008/2009 academic year. The number of students registered in the program has reached more than 600 students, the majority of whom work in companies and government and private institutions locally, regionally, and internationally.

The program is taught by a qualified teaching staff of doctoral and masters holders in all scientific fields and specializations. The program also includes several design studios and well-equipped laboratories such as a computer lab and a laser cutter lab. The department constantly updates its program to meet the future needs. In this context, the department has established a system that conforms to the highest academic standards.
