Dean's Message

As the Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Architecture, I greet you with my warmest feelings.

Our faculty comprises two distinct, yet interconnected departments: (1) Architecture and (2) Interior Architecture and Environmental Design. 

The areas of interest of the two departments transcend the mere creation of aesthetically pleasing structures; they encompass a multi-layered and profound structure. The work of architects and interior architects involves understanding human behavior, crafting sustainable and economical solutions, and narrating compelling stories through designs. By utilizing a blend of studio and theoretical courses, our faculty explores this multi-layered approach from socio-cultural, economic, technological, and interdisciplinary perspectives, addressing both historical and contemporary professional discourse.

While we emphasize the importance of providing our students with the professional skills necessary for the real world, we also place significant emphasis on their growth as responsible members of society. We encourage a deep-rooted respect for environmental, natural, cultural, and regional values, coupled with a commitment to professional ethics.

Undoubtedly, architecture education can be challenging, with its share of difficulties and highs and lows. Yet, it is crucial to recognize that each stage in this journey is valuable and contributes significantly to the personal and professional development of our students.

Within our esteemed faculty, a team of dedicated academic staff, each expert in their respective fields, is committed to accompanying and supporting our students throughout their educational journey. We encourage our students to cultivate close relationships with these knowledgeable mentors, drawing from their wealth of experience.

We look forward to meeting and working with you.
