Head of Architectural Department : It gives me great pleasure and honor to welcome you to the Architectural Engineering Department (AED) and its high caliber staff members and teaching assistants, Throughout 8 years of excellence, the AED played a proactive role in providing the Architectural, Engineering, and Construction industries with qualified graduates who are capable to contribute significantly in building the nation. The AED is a positive, multidisciplinary and creative environment that helps to equip students with state-of-the-art knowledge and practical skills in Architectural Engineering to address global environmental and technological challenges. It brings students to the fore cutting-edge approaches to architecture, urban planning, and design, landscape architecture, building services, sustainability, construction technology, and management. Finally, I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the department, staff members, and projects.
“The Architecture engineering mission is to provide a high-quality educational experience for undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of architectural, environmental, geotechnical, structural, and transportation engineering and environmental science. The educational experience is accomplished through innovative classroom instruction aided by computer and multimedia-based instruction, laboratory experiences and student mentoring. The products of this experience are engineers and scientists capable of critical thinking, devoted to a lifetime of learning, and highly sought after by employers
Architecture is the art and technique of designing, planning, and constructing buildings and facilities that man utilizes to satisfy his material or spiritual needs through using various different construction materials and methods. Thus, it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic ends. Architecture is a broad field; it includes various fields of knowledge and human sciences, such as mathematics, science, technology, history, psychology, politics, philosophy, social sciences, culture and art in its comprehensive form. Architecture has a close-knit relationship with the areas of urban planning of cities, and the development of strategic plans. It also deals with civil furnishing and interior design. During the design phase, the architect is required to creatively make use of all the available resources and techniques to analyze the contrasting data. Then, he develops a complete and detailed conception of the project, putting into consideration functional, artistic and aesthetic aspects and linking it to the nature, traditions and customs in the region. Finally, he gets an appropriate version of the design reflects the needs of the people who use the place later. He is also required to prepare drawing of various architectural and construction plans to determine the construction method, prepare schedules, cost estimation and construction management. The word "architecture" is also used to include all other designed systems, computer architecture, and software architecture (especially in the field of information technology.)
