The Bachelor of Architecture Program in Architecture offers a fundamental architectural education for future practitioners and leaders who will contribute their skill, intelligence and vision towards the advancement of the architectural discipline at both the local and global levels. The undergraduate curriculum positions architectural design in the context of socioeconomic and sociocultural awareness and stresses the significance of environmental impacts, materials science, engineering, and construction techniques in research and practice.

BArch Program in Thai Architecture

Founded in 1996, the BArch Program in Thai Architecture was conceived as a learning laboratory for the scholarship and research of Thai architectural traditions. The objective of the program is to introduce future architectural professionals to the elements of Thai building design and construction not only for the purposes of conservation but also for the innovation of new architectures that meld old techniques and new technologies in revealing and creative ways. The curriculum for the BArch Program in Thai architecture follows a similar course of study as the BArch Program in Architecture. Once second year standing has been achieved, students branch off into a concentration in Thai architecture, with separate required courses and engagement in a dissertation project. Approximately 12 students are accepted into the program per year.
