The Department of Architecture is one of the pioneer departments that launched the first academic activity of SU at its own campus in Kawran bazar, Dhaka. The Department of Architecture aims at a curriculum befitting the contemporary needs providing a student with reasonable flexibility in the selection of courses to move horizontally and vertically to suit his/her aptitude and interest. The academic atmosphere is characterized by rich co-curricular activities and a lively cultural life. The program is pragmatic in the sense that it is cut to the needs of the profession, keeping intact all the skills demanded from a professional B.Arch. degree, but not to unnecessarily burden the students. The design studios, the vital part of the curriculum are taught by 2 to 3 teachers. Thus excellent 1:10 teacher-student ratio is maintained.
