The Department of Architecture was founded in 1982 in the former Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and the undergraduate program was first enrolled in the same year while the postgraduate program was established in the following year. Prof. Zhou Puyi who graduated from Columbia University of America in 1947 had engaged as the first head of the department, and also several famous Chinese architectural professors participated in the department creation. A large number of teachers have been designated by the Department to study abroad successively. Therefore, the Department has been well equipped from the starting point and has accumulated abundant academic and professional experiences. In May 1999, the Department successfully passed two national accreditations, one is the undergraduate program of the architectural discipline education, and the other one is the master program of architectural design and its theory.
Wuhan Urban Construction College was the first institute for urban construction in New China, established with the approval of the State Council. It is one of the institutes that were directly affiliated with the national Ministry of Construction. The program of architectural discipline education was started in 1986.
In 2000, the former Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Wuhan Urban Construction College merged into Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), integrating the programs of architectural discipline education to school of architecture and urban planning. After that, the program successfully passed the Architectural Accreditation of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education in 2003.The Department of Architecture passed the Architectural Accreditation of Undergraduate and Postgraduate Education again in 2007 and 2014, and they also respectively achieved excellent level of evaluation results. The Department of Architecture ranked No.9 in 2012 China Discipline Ranking (CDR) organized by China Academic Degrees and Graduate Education Development Center (CDGDC) approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
Our students have participated in many kinds of competitions and won numerous honors, including the first price of International Union of Architects (UIA) and International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) student competitions awards. Some of our early graduates have become backbones in some China high-level architectural design institutes. Some others have worked as main architect in American and European architecture firms. A number of alumnus have been awarded PhD degrees by lots of world-renowned universities like Harvard, University of California, Berkeley, and Delft University of Technology, and then joined many famous universities both in China and abroad.
For more than thirty years, the Department of Architecture has adhered to international teaching models. We have maintained continuous and close cooperation with many other colleges and universities including Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), University of Arizona, North Carolina State University, University of Florida, Technical University of Munich, Detmold School of Architecture in Germany, University of Tokyo, Paris-Val de Seine Architecture School, Nantes Architectural Institute in France, Delft University of Technology, Bergen School of Architecture, and Fiuni School of Architecture in Norway and so on. The architectural design courses have been approved as provincial key disciplines of Hubei. The main goal of the architecture educational reform programs for undergraduates is aiming to cultivate professional architects. Students will get an international certificated degree: the Bachelor of Architecture. The postgraduate course system is composed of three research fields: Architecture Design and its Theory, Architectural History & Theory, Building Technology, Urban Design, Cultural Heritage Conservation and Interior Design. The Department of Architecture can confer the degrees of Bachelor of Architecture, Master of Architecture, Master of Engineering (Building Technology) and Doctor of Engineering (Architectural Design & Theory), with a post-doctoral station.
The Department now has 47 teachers, including 10 professors, 19 associate professors, and 15 lecturers, in which there are 26 teachers with PhD Degree. There are about 3 full time guest teachers from both domestic and overseas all year round. Most of the teachers have experiences of oversea study or advanced study abroad. Some of them are members of domestic or international academic organizations and academic journals. Since 1982, our department researchers have undertaken more than twenty projects of China National Science Foundation. A large number of design works have been done by our teachers and postgraduate students, and won UNESCO, national and provincial design awards.
