The Department of Architecture at CUD is the intersection of design, business, technology, and creativity. Our degrees provide a balance of theory, design work and professional experience and as a graduate you'll learn how to lead on projects, solve complex problems and communicate your ideas while thinking about the wider responsibilities of an architect.
Our interactive program is aligned with the Canadian Certification Board (CACB) standards and delivered in a studio setting by faculty experienced in both teaching and professional practice. Students enrolled in this program develop knowledge and skills that enable them to become multi-functional professionals with the ability to blend the fundamentals of architectural design with business and creativity in technology and art.
Our program reflects contemporary design approaches and is facilitated by full-time faculty and professional architects and engineers who bring practical as well as theoretical experience, providing deep insights into the local and international world of design. The department maintains a close relationship with the UAE Society of Engineers and other professionals in the industry, with many of them coming in to deliver guest lectures, conduct professional workshops, and inviting our students into their workplaces and factories.
