Welcome from the Chair

Omar Khan, Chair, Department of Architecture

The Department of Architecture is committed to the philosophy that architects have a role to play in the aesthetic, social and cultural betterment of society.

Our curricula prepare students to see the full implications of what architecture does for the built environment. Through our pedagogy, faculty research and creative practice, we engage our students in local and global issues to help them understand the human, ecological, material and technological consequences of design. Students receive a comprehensive design education that prepares them for contemporary and future challenges in architecture and urbanism.
