Faculties and Departments

Faculty of Architecture and Interior Design

The Faculty offers two of the best Bachelor degree programs in Architecture and Interior Design in the GCC. The Bachelor of Architecture is a 5-year terminal degree program forming graduates poised to fulfil local professional registration while matching licensing requirements of international associations of architecture.

The BSc in Interior Design has a marked emphasis on creativity and problem solving in conjunction with adaptability, rationality and accountability in design thinking. Both programs are benchmarked against Canadian and American standards and offer opportunities to transfer or undertake a period of study in North America. The Faculty plans to offer in the near future a 4-year BSc degree program in Architecture followed by a Master of Science (MSc) in Architecture – Urban Planning.
