Architecture is a unique field that integrates elements of both engineering and art. Those who would master architecture must have both a basic knowledge covering many fields and creativity. With these unique aspects of architecture in mind, students in this curriculum will be thoroughly acquainted with the various kinds of specialized knowledge needed for design work, from design training to industrial design, construction, facilities, materials and construction methods.

Third and fourth year students are divided into four groups: 1. architectural planning/design, 2. building system and structure, 3. building materials/construction methods, and 4. building environment/facilities — and they participate in seminars and graduate research. The students themselves determine the directions their studies will follow.

In recent years, there has been expansion in fields covered by architecture, such as regional planning, project management, facility management, etc. in design and a wide variety of innovative technologies are emerging in engineering. In this curriculum, we are passionate about teaching students the solid basic skills as well as creative thinking that will allow them to flexibly respond to these conditions.
