INTRODUCTION

The ancient roman architect Virtuvius commented that a building should have Beauty (Venustas),
Firmness (Firmitas) and Utility (Utilitas),hence, architecture is said to be a balance and coordination
among these three elements, with neither overpowering the others. The practice of Architecture in
Malaysia also seeks to create a balance – today’s Malaysian Architects are in great need of technically
capable technicians who can assist them in fulfilling their social function as spatial designers.
Thus, the Polytechnic Diploma in Architecture programme is specifically designed to counter this imbalance.

the development and implementation of team skills through the teaching of architectural design through studio-based projects.
The projects involve the application and integration of the knowledge and skills acquired from supporting courses in
technology, environment, cultural context, communication, management practice and law.

JOB PROSPECT

This programme provides the knowledge and skills in Architecture that can be applied to broad range of career.
