In the Division of Urban Construction Engineering, the 3 majors(architectural engineering, architecture, urban planning) necessary for the creation of sustainable and future-oriented urban∙architectural environment, are integrated based on specialization.
In the architectural engineering, we foster professional engineers with technical abilities and business mindset through a curriculum covering construction management, green construction facility, aseismatic and storm-proof structure, as well as global architects and related professionals possessing the ability to create sustainable architectural and residential environment. In the major of urban planning, we nurture creative urban designers with urban engineering, humanistic and artistic ability. The division focuses on producing practical experts loyal to social demands through such specialized curriculum of each major. On this basis, through a systematic education such as thematic integral education between majors, research oriented curriculum, expansion of the international exchange etc. for an integral expansion of personal ability, we aim to nurture urban and architectural professionals who will lead the creation of future urban and architectural environment.
The architecture major was established together with the engineering school and architectural engineering school in March 1979 with the founding of Incheon University, and in 2010 was reorganized and expanded into the urban architecture major within the college of urban science. The purpose of the architecture major is to develop highly qualified, practice-oriented architects who can exhibit their talents in architectural enterprise and research following graduation. The architecture major cultivates advanced professionals with solid foundations in the technical areas of architecture planning, architecture design, architecture history, digital architecture, green architecture, and construction, as well as in the general fields of cultural studies, the humanities, and the social sciences. The department consists of five faculty members, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral curriculums, and is producing highly qualified professionals in social and industrial settings through the graduate school of architecture and graduate school of education. The department is focused on developing an internationally-oriented curriculum which conforms to GATS standards, and is diversifying its educational process and opportunities for its graduates by emphasizing expertise in advanced technology and technical research.
