The programme encompasses design, technology and practice, history and theory. Students are offered innovative choices in how they approach and shape their own architectural education – learning with leading experts in the field of architecture, urbanism and environmental design in a lively, collaborative studio culture.

We teach strong critical skills and clear conceptual thinking. This helps our Malaysian students develop their strategic leadership skills and heighten their ability to look critically at their own work within a wider cultural context and - ultimately - to develop those skills further into a career in architecture.
