Architecture strongly relates to built environment and urban planning disciplines such as civil and structural engineering, quantity surveying, and property economics and management. If you are interested in creating things, buildings and spaces, technology, art and design, a career in architecture may be for you.

After SPM, students must possess a credit in Maths & any one Science subject in order to enter into the Foundation for one year. Upon successful completion, they will then enter into the degree for another 3 years which is accredited by Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia (PAM) equivalent to PAM 1.

The next step is to go into an accredited Masters equivalent to PAM 2 for another 2 years. Graduates will then work for 2 years and then sit for the PAM 3 exams and then to finally become an architect.

The whole process after SPM will take you about 8 years.

Architecture is a mixture of practical and theoretical studies. It is important to understand the philosophy, history and culture in order to create stunning buildings. Students will learn how to use design software to create models, drawings, prototypes and structures.

You will learn how to use creative and rational inquiry to analyse and provide solutions to design problems, integrating emerging aesthetic, technical, social and ethical concerns. Students will apply advanced digital design tools to solve design problems and address sustainability issues. Students will spend long hours in research and project-based architectural design subjects to create stunning design pieces that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. To create these projects will require you to think logically on how the buildings function and are constructed, and then combine them with innovative & creative concepts.
