Diploma in Architecture

Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL)
Kajang, Selangor
Studying architecture is both challenging and fun. Architects enjoy the satisfaction of watching their drawings transform into magnificent masterpieces.

This course will equip you with the technical and practical skills to become a creative designer and good problem solver. Students will learn to work well both individually and in a team to complete a project.

Is this programme for me?
Those with artistic skills, are technically inclined and have a flair for problem solving would be most suited for this programme. In addition, if you work well independently as well as in a team, it would be an added advantage as one of the programme's effective learning concepts is peer learning which demands a lot of interaction.

Bear in mind, Architecture is a challenging programme. Be prepared to spend most of your time in the design studios and working on your masterpieces.

What will I learn?
Architecture is the profession of designing buildings, open areas and other man-made structures and environments, usually with artistic effects.

An architecture student will produce drawings, construct building models, specify construction materials and colour combinations for a given project.

Students will be exposed to assignments and projects through site visits, study tours, exhibitions and competitions. At IUKL, the focus is more on hands-on experience, technical and practical skills.
