Introduction

Programme Aims

The Department of Architecture, Interior and Product Design runs a one-semester spatial and environmental based curriculum common to all first-year Higher Diploma students studying in Architecture, Interior and Landscape Design. The programme aims primarily at students who have completed their secondary school education and expect to take up specialist spatial and environmental design studies. It is designed to reflect the context of basic design and creative knowledge and skills which serve as an introduction to, and preparation for, the year one students for the next four to five-semester study in their respective professional design programmes.

The spatial and environmental-based common curriculum design provides a holistic experience to the year one students and a sound foundation to enable the students to confirm their study programmes within the Department of Architecture, Interior and Product Design.

Programme Stream

Students will choose one of the following specialised programmes so as to enhance professional knowledge and skills in specific areas:

  • Higher Diploma in Architectural Design
  • Higher Diploma in Interior Design

* The 1st semester is a common semester. Students will progress to the professional programmes in the 2nd semester, subject to their programme choice, academic performance and study place availability in a specific programme.
