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 urban architecture major was developed along with the architectural engineering department in March 1979 with the founding of Incheon University. Since its founding, the architectural engineering department has produced 28 rounds of graduates as of 2010, and in March 2010, the college of urban science was expanded to include the field of urban architecture. Among 3 intensive majors of the urban architecture major, the architectural engineering major focuses on technology-based education, and includes advanced study of architectural structure, architectural materials, structural mechanics, ferroconcrete, river structures, architectural environment, architectural facilities, and construction project management. The purpose of the architectural engineering major is to produce, through advanced education and research, expert professionals who can acclimate quickly to on-site work settings in businesses and research institutes. The curriculum includes a 4-year process beginning with education in the fundamentals of architecture, and uses this basic knowledge as the foundation for further training in a variety of advanced fields, focusing particularly on the cultivation of technological expertise. The architectural engineering department includes a faculty of 7 members and a total of 200 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students. To help ensure that students are equipped with a strong foundation in socially and industrially-related knowledge, the major is managed in collaboration with the general graduate school, the graduate school of education, and the graduate school of engineering. Graduates of the architectural engineering department enter both industry and research settings as advanced technicians and professional researchers.
