The Department of Architecture at AURAK is committed to providing a specialized education focused on design proposals and building technology implementation in both built and natural environments.
Our curricula are designed to meet the highest standards of educational quality in the field and have been crafted in accordance with the National Architecture Accreditation Board (NAAB) (for BArch) and with Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) (for BAID) standards.
Our Architecture program provides students with a comprehensive education on creating sustainable built environments, and Interior Design trains students in creating healthy, user-friendly interior spaces.
Students from both programs learn to use various design tools and techniques, including hand and digital drawing, and the most advanced software for design modeling and 3D visualization.
Our programs prepare students for careers in architecture and interior design, where digital design skills and knowledge of building technologies are essential. Join us at the Department of Architecture and gain the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in these exciting and dynamic fields.
