Students will be based at the SLIIT School of Architecture, in the Faculty of Engineering, at SLIIT Malabe campus, to gain an internal degree from Liverpool John Moores, UK. The first two years of study at SLIIT aims to provide students with an inclusive understanding of the cultural and traditional context of architectural design in Sri Lanka. The third (and final), year of study collaborates with the Liverpool John Moores University, to introduce the global dynamic of the degree, imparting the international awareness needed to provide students with a comprehensive education in becoming truly global graduates of Architecture.
The degree will cover subject areas ranging from Architectural Design, History and Theory of Architecture, Culture and Society, Environment, Urbanism, CAD and freehand drawing, to Construction Technology & Professional Practice. This BSc (Hons) Degree in Architecture is recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Sri Lanka, opening opportunities to pursue postgraduate studies in related fields at government universities. This will be a firm foundation that paves the way to a number of other interesting postgraduate programs and professions. Urban Design, Town and Country planning, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, Archeology, Conservation and project management are some of the areas to which BSc (Hons) Architecture graduates can divert into, apart from a professional carrier in Architecture.
