Engineering Degree Program in China - Architecture

1. Introduction

Architecture is a subject mainly about architecture and environment. Normally, it refers to the combination of art and technology related to architectural design and construction. Thus, architecture is involved with both engineering and humanities. 

“How to design buildings” is the topic of architecture. At the same time, learners need to grasp the basic knowledge and technology of architecture. For example, people are asked to design the building from the facade, interior and exterior space according to the requirements of the functions of room, types of buildings, (such as stadiums, cinemas, houses, buildings, etc.), and the technology and materials of building construction, etc. What the students need to learn is from a simple room layout to the design of the several building blocks in the city.
