Characteristic education  

The School of Architecture has a tradition to organize international workshops as one part of its advanced teaching method. In recent years, the school's design courses has made continuous attempts to be more open and creative, and enjoyed fruitful collaborations with several famed international organizations and universities. With these jointed teaching experiences, our school has developed a more diverse and holistic approach to design teachings, and made our students become more competitive and have wider visions. Up until now, the school has established workshops with more than twenty countries from Europe, America and Asia, and that includes jointed courses with world renowned institutes such as Harvard University, UC Berkeley and Università degli Studi di Ferrara from Italy etc. In the past five years, there are totally more than twenty academic staffs (about one quarter of them) and three hundred students (about one sixth of them) had participated in these workshops, making it a key component of the school's creative way of teaching.
