Evaluation of the final semester design studio’s approach of bachelor of science in architecture at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In year 2015, the Department of Architecture (DoA) has obtained full five-year recognition from the Board of Architects Malaysia (LAM) for Bachelor of Science in Architecture starting 2014. In the accreditation process, the evaluation of design courses is the most important to describe the outcomes of the program. Architectural Design VI is the final design studio course before completing the degree. It sums up all the knowledge throughout the three years program. The outcomes of this course describe the ability, knowledge and potential of all students. While the course was designed to suit the requirements of LAM, it was also designed to achieve the architecture approach of DoA (which is National Architecture Identity). However, after 4 years of running the program along the outlined approach, evaluation has yet been completed whether the course has successfully achieved its objectives. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to evaluate whether the course can achieve the architecture approach of DoA, National Architecture Identity. A questionnaires survey was conducted for this study. The respondents were the final semester students. Two batches were selected, involving 23 students. The outcome from this study suggests that all the four strategies to fulfil the department’s goal to incorporate ‘national architecture identity’ element in its program were successfully achieved in Architectural Design VI.
