Founded in 1952, the School of Architecture continues to make efforts to be a core architectural institute leading regional academic research and quality education open to the community.
In 2002, the Department of Architecture was reorganized into the School of Architecture with a five-year Bachelor of Architecture program and a four-year Bachelor of Architectural Engineering program. With a common curriculum in the first semester of studies, students can select and advance to one of the two programs in their second semester.
To achieve this goal, the School of Architecture provides an opportunity for students to understand the methods of creating buildings and architectural environments through design and experiments. The objective is to develop creative, scientific, and future-oriented architect engineers with a professional and comprehensive overview in order to contribute to the creation of architecture culture and academic development of Korea.
