Program Aim and Outcome

Completing a master's degree in architecture enables students to develop advanced skills to succeed in their field. As the workforce changes, a postgraduate degree indicates that you are committed to developing your knowledge and reputation in the industry. The students should concentrate on a specific area of research, which will help them become more successful in their field. The advantages of a master's degree can also help students build on their current skills, learn new talents, or even transfer to an entirely new area.

A master’s degree also supports career development supporting a transition to more senior positions, such as leadership and management. Many companies understand the advantages of a master's degree and choose to provide one for their employees. In fact, over the last few years, 74 percent of employers have increased educational requirements, with several businesses seeking to recruit those with advanced degrees.

The other advantages of a master's degree often allow students to develop their ability to study, research, write and analyze. Consequently, they can become stronger in problem-solving and develop the ability to better handle complicated tasks. They continue to build on a wealth of experience by obtaining a postgraduate degree, preparing them for a life of continuous learning.

Therefore, from an academic point of view, engaging students in a high level of education to continue their studies will open a new door for them to continue their academic and professional lives.

There is no doubt that the proposed program will have both academic and market value. It is a fact that a program with a thesis will be beneficial for successful students in academic and scientific studies and will open academic career paths. Our university will also have qualified students who will support academic studies.

The learning outcomes of the program are:

*Develop and critically analyze the architectural design

*Employ modes of architectural representation and other discipline-specific vocabulary and analytic systems

*Situate architecture within historic, social, and cultural contexts

*Assert a critical position through the development of an architecture thesis

*Understand the methods of investigation and preparation of a brief for a design project.

*Engage in all aspects of architectural work from assessing user requirements to designing within the constraints imposed by cost factors and building regulations.

*Understand the regulations and procedures of the industries and organizations involved in translating design concepts into buildings and urban planning.
