Department of Architecture Engineering

The Department of Architecture was established in 1959 in the domains of the College of Engineering in Baghdad University to get B. Sc degree in the Architectural Sciences. More than two thousands architects have graduated since the establishment of the department until 2005-2006. Many of them could fulfill creative architectural achievements in different state sectors. Furthermore, a great number of them have become distinguished in the Arab and international architectural fields. The numbers of acceptance for the primary study range from 50-60 students per year as a minimum number in addition to the acceptance of foreign and Arab students, who constitute 10% of total number of the accepted students. The period of undergraduate studies is 5 academic years, each consists two semesters.

The post-graduate studies were introduced to get the degree M. Sc. in the Architecture for two academic years at the end of the seventies of the past century. The number of acceptance of the Master stage has increased reaching more than 12 students in 2002-2003 distributed into three specializations as the following:

- The environment and technology of architecture.

- Theory of architecture and Islamic architecture.

- Housing and urban design.

Similarly, the Doctoral study has been introduced to get Ph. D. in Architecture since the eighties of the last century and the annual number of acceptance has increased to average 4 students. The Ph.D. curriculum period is three academic years as minimum and it includes a group of specializations in the philosophy, history, sciences,

theories of architecture and Islamic architecture, beside technology sciences, cities development, urban development, and housing issues.
