Architecture Engineering is one of the prominent and popular disciplines within engineering. Many people in the developed countries, developing countries and under developed countries have given emphasis for the broader application of Architecture Engineering. This field has been helping the world for the all-round physical infrastructure development and it has been creating wage and self employment opportunities both in public and private sectors. This curriculum is designed with the purpose of producing middle level technical workforce equipped with knowledge and skills related to the field of Architecture Engineering so as to meet the demand of such workforce in the country to contribute in the national economic development of Nepal. The knowledge and skills incorporated in this curriculum will be helpful to deliver the individual needs as well national needs in the field of Architecture Engineering.
This curriculum has following objectives to:
1. Prepare technicians who are capable of undertaking works in architecture engineering field as architecture engineering technicians under rural and urban development planning, design and development of building construction and other civil infrastructures development related departments and sectors;
2. Produce middle level competent technical workforce/human resources that could provide supervisory works of architecture engineering;
3. Prepare technical workforce who will demonstrate positive attitude and respect for the profession and socio-cultural values;
4. Help in meeting the demand of required architecture engineering technicians for the public and private infrastructure design and development of Nepal; and
5. Create self employment opportunities.
This course is based on the job required to perform by the Junior Architect/Draftsperson (Diploma engineers) at different levels of public and private sectors physical infrastructures development related architecture engineering works in Nepal. Therefore, this curriculum is designed to provide knowledge and skills focusing on architecture Engineering related to the occupation. There are six semesters in total within the period of three years. The first year courses are offered focusing on foundational and core subjects of engineering; the second year courses are focused on basic disciplinary subjects of architecture Engineering. Similarly, the third year whole courses comprise of the disciplinary subjects related to building design, construction and working drawings. Moreover, the third year insists on the application of learned skills and knowledge through the Quantity surveying, specification and project work. The foundational subjects like Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics are offered in diffusion model of curricular programme are applicable in the field of architecture Engineering. It also includes language subjects like Nepali and English applicable for the communication in the same area. The disciplinary subjects of architecture Engineering are offered in this programme are included in all semesters. The curriculum structure and the subject wise content that reflect the details of this curriculum. In brief, this curriculum will guide to its implementers to produce competent and highly employable middle level technical workforces in the field of architecture engineering.
The contents of individual subjects prescribed in the curriculum are incorporated in the light of "must know and must do" principle of knowledge and skills for this level.
