DDIT The Department of Architecture started its Bachelor of Science in Architecture in 2011. This 11 Semester study program provided students with a solid base of knowledge in the creative arts, building science, up-to-date technology and practical skills thereby producing professional architects who will contribute and participate responsibly to the socio-economic and cultural development of Ethiopia’s built environment.
Accordingly, the Department harmonized its curriculum in collaboration with other Universities in 2013. It now focuses on outcome-based learning, giving importance on the actual outputs. The Department upholds its compliance to the UNESCO/UIA charter for Architectural Education and the UIA Accord on recommended International standards of professionalism in Architectural practice.
