Orientation to Engineering course



What is Architecture?

  • It is all our surroundings buildings, houses and project which was built by experts.
  • It is the art of building.
  • It is the result for planned work.
  • It contains buildings and built environment that we live, study, worship, get sick and die in.
  • It is the art of expression about functional spaces, to transfer what architecture must be associated with individual and collective taste for humans and linked to their nature and cultures.

What is Architecture?

  • An architectural product or work.
  • The discipline dealing with the principles of design and construction and ornamentation of fine buildings; "architecture and eloquence are mixed arts whose end is sometimes beauty and sometimes use."

What is Architecture?

Architecture (Latin „architectura“, from the Greek „arkitekton“, ὰρχιτεκτονική – arkhitektonike, from ὰρχι chief or leader and Τεκτονική builder or carpenter) is the art and science of designing buildings and other physical structures

The profession of designing buildings and environments with consideration for their esthetic effect.


What is Architecture?

The word architecture can have many meanings. Depending on the context,

Architecture can refer to:

1. Any man-made building or structure.2. A man-made building or structure that is important, large, or highly creative.3. A carefully designed object, such as a chair, a spoon, or a tea kettle. 4. A design for a city, town, park, or landscape.5. the art or science of designing and building buildings, structures, objects, and outdoor spaces.6. A building style or method.7. A plan for organizing space.8. The flow of information on a Web page.9. The planned design of any kind of system.10. A systematic arrangement of information or ideas.


Who is the Architect?

  • Someone who creates plans to be used in making something (such as buildings (
  • An architect is trained and licensed in the planning and designing of buildings, and participates in supervising the construction of a building
  • The person who is qualified with scientific and technical and engineering and has the skills and experience required to work in the field of building and construction and architectural design
  • .
mission vision and goals

Architectural department

  • The primary mission of the department is to prepare students for successful careers in professional practice and to conduct research in the design, engineering, and construction of buildings with special emphasis on high performance green buildings.
  • High performance green buildings are energy efficient, healthy, productive, and safe facilities that reduce the environmental impact of the built environment through the use of integrated systems and appropriate materials.
Mission, Vision and Goals
mission vision and goals1

To accomplish this mission, the scope of the department’s teaching, research and service efforts includes:

  • - Designing all building systems on principles of safety and serviceability;
  • - Creating high quality, healthy, safe, energy efficient, and productive indoor environments;
  • - Designing lighting and electrical systems that are highly functional and make appropriate use of daylight;
  • - Integrating building systems within a design to optimize overall building performance;
  • Constructing these facilities using the most functional project delivery methods, building information modeling practices, and efficient construction systems;
  • Promoting leadership and positive influence on the education, design and practice of architectural engineering.
Mission, Vision and Goals
mission vision and goals2

Our vision is to educate world-class architectural engineers capable of excelling in the creation of high performance buildings, addressing both new and existing building stock and to continue to be recognized as the premier academic program in the integration of teaching, research, and service in architectural engineering.

Mission, Vision and Goals
mission vision and goals3

World-class architectural engineers are:

  • Solidly grounded with high professional ethics to handle real life problems elegantly;
  • Competent with breadth and depth in engineering fundamentals and building systems;
  • Aware of the world and sensitive to the environment and international cultures;
  • Versatile and flexible in providing professional services and understanding entrepreneurship;
  • Effective in team operation and cooperation skills;
  • Effective in communication skills and leadership roles.
  • Crucial to our vision is the promotion of continued leadership of architectural engineers in creating positive influences on the education, design, and practice of architecture besides the engineering of building systems.
Mission, Vision and Goals

To accomplish our mission and approach our vision, the Architectural Engineering Department has identified the following goals:

  • Provide students with the best cross-disciplinary education available for successful careers in the building professions of high performance building design and construction;
  • Promote effective and efficient graduate programs by developing the resources and programs to attract an outstanding and diverse body of graduate students. Grow external and internal student interest in the Department’s graduate program;

To accomplish our mission and approach our vision, the Architectural Engineering Department has identified the following goals:

  • Enhance the AE Department’s leading position in high performance green building research through existing and new initiatives to advance the state-of-the-art in the Architectural Engineering field, particularly related in sustainability and energy efficiency;
  • Enhance academic excellence through the effective support of faculty, students, and staff including acquiring the necessary human and physical resources to assure expanded success in the Department’s teaching and research goals; and,
  • Develop and implement a department governance structure that promotes collaboration and cooperation among the Department Head, faculty, and staff.

Architectural Department Activities

  • Holding Public Lectures and workshops in different disciplines related to architecture.
  • Organizing scientific trips to archaeological and urban areas to provide students with various theoretical and practical knowledge together.
  • Holding exhibition at the end of each design course to highlight the level of students and their creativity in different disciplines.
