Program Learning Objectives- Bachelor Degree in Architectural Engineering

The objectives of the Bachelor degree in Architectural Engineering at IAU are characterized at three significant categories of cognitive, affective, and psychomotor- the broadly recognized taxonomy of educational objectives in academia. The program objectives are to combine knowledge and skill in education in a manner to graduate professionally competent architects. These objectives are characterized as the following goals.

  • Present cutting-edge education to prepare students for playing key roles in professional Architecture by offering comprehensive and cognitive knowledge in engineering, technology, design theories and practices, environmental and cultural factors, planning, and building science
  • Prepare students to effectively perform in team-based settings in design and construction industry by providing know-how in the built environment relevant to professional practice and ethics in  Architecture
  • Train students and assist them to develop and acquire significant learning skills including analytical thinking, assessing of surroundings, experimental learning of design concepts, communicating to peers and team members, presenting of ideas to clients and public 

Upon the completion of the following credit hours successfully, the students would be graduated from a Bachelor of Architectural Engineering program.

Program Learning Outcomes- Bachelor in Architecture Engineering:

The program objectives of the Bachelor of Architectural Engineering are being   identified as many learning outcomes. These outcomes are related to the knowledge and skill components essential for professional practice in Architecture. Theses outcomes translate the minimum expected learning outputs and are not exclusive. Upon the successful completion of the program, the graduate is expected to be academically capable of:

  1. PLO1: Gaining and recalling the rudimentary knowledge in subfields of maths, geometry, building materials, and understanding of surroundings as well as sketching the drawings and developing them to building details.
  2. PLO2: Recognizing the social and cultural aspects of architecture and outlining the theoretical and practical terminology regarding the topics including world architecture, Islamic architecture, contemporary architecture; and mechanical and electrical utilities.
  3. PLO3: Classifying and describing the ideas about perspective, architectural expressions, lighting and acoustics; and the connection between buildings, human and nature through observation and recognition of various techniques.
  4. PLO4: Applying the introduction to architectural design through the sense of space and physical features, practicing the learned material in environmental control, and optimally solving problems as well as calculating in the fields of static, strength of building material, steel and concrete structure.
  5. PLO5: Experimentally identifying perceptual dimensions of peoples and built environments; and critically analyzing the data gathered through surveying, the results in urban spaces as well as the findings collected from field studies in the rural areas with appropriate tools, applications, and methodology.
  6. PLO6: Comparing fundamental perceptions such as identity, values, and traditions; and contrasting other concepts such as the theory of architecture, building restoration, physical planning, and management in an argumentative way in acquire a better grasp of the subject and generate knowledge.
  7. PLO7: Creating conventional and innovative projects following the industry standards in architectural and technical design, presenting the design outcomes, evaluating the design of other peers, and eventually generating the design requirements such as form, function, and orientation.
  8. PLO8: Building an effective rapport with the peers in implementing team-based settings and projects including construction administration, workshop report, cost estimation, and rural architecture.
