Architecture is a specialized profession associated with design proposals and building technology implementation in both environments built and natural. Architectural curricula of AURAK is establishing an educational standards of architectural training along with the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole organization certified to accredit U.S. professional degree of architecture worldwide: the Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch). Presenting design ideas visually to our clients, architects need to work on design innovations and to build graphical communication skills thoroughly.However, in AURAK (American University of Ras Al Khaimah) Architecture, students are learning intensely about new design thoughts and to apply special design concepts for functional spaces in architecture. Students at AURAK are also communicating their ideas through multiple media to be able of preparing a variety of architectural drawings, building models and construction documents in details….
Careers after Graduation
Architects are in competence to practice their talents in innovating new design with engineering to handle their leading professional duties. Their responsibilities are also to generate aesthetically pleasing architecture and functional buildings that serve a purpose. However, architects are involved in every step of a scheme mission which starts from the initial proposal sittings to the ribbon-cutting ceremony. One of the major advances in the architecture field to build the necessary skills of digital design and building information modeling BIM. Nowadays, the understanding of digital architecture along with hand-skills of sketching, drawings and building physical models is allowing architects to be more innovative in design aspects and associating theory and practice of architecture clearly.
The Architecture Department at AURAK has a digital laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to support teaching and research activities in the main areas of construction and design.
Architecture Digital lab contains 18 PCs. Each PC is equipped with AutoCAD 2016; Revit 2016; 3ds Max 2016; Rhino 5 for windows, ADOBE Photoshop, ADOBE Indesign and CutePDF Writer. All computers are connected to Canon iPF785 plotter (max. paper width: 950 mm), Océ (Plot Wave 360) and Universal Laser System (Work Space size 80 cm x 45 cm).
