Top 5 Architecture studies in China

Updated: Mar 27,2018 cucas.edu.cn Print

Architecture is the art and science of designing and engineering large structures and buildings. Those who choose to study architecture will have enthusiasm for both the sciences and the arts, and architecture admissions requirements typically consider both artistic ability and mathematical proficiency.

If asked to answer the question "what is architecture?" many people might simply say that architects design buildings. However, architecture careers often involve a much more varied workload. Much of the time, a practicing architect at a small- to medium-sized firm will also be involved in planning, budgeting, handling financial accounts, negotiating with contractors, ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations on site, and preparing specifications for materials and workmanship.

In conclusion, combining both sides of the brain and promising graduate career prospects that are both personally fulfilling and financially rewarding, architecture degrees are a highly popular and competitive choice. Blending art, science and technology, the subject requires the development of an interdisciplinary skillset – drawing on elements of mathematics and engineering, combined with creativity and an understanding of modern technologies, social issues and cultural trends.

They also travel to visit construction sites and oversee the progress of projects. Self-employed architects have more flexible schedules but are also expected to be available to meet with clients and other professionals involved in a project.

About 69 percent of all architects are employed in architectural, engineering or related services. About one in five are self-employed.
