  • Welcome to the Department of Architecture at Seoul National University of Science and Technology [SeoulTech]. Located in central Seoul, the School of Architecture at SeoulTech is dedicated to pragmatic and industry-oriented education. The School of Architecture offers a 5 year fully accredited Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) program and associated coursework that provides excellent preparation for future careers. Our program features the full spectrum of design, theory, planning, and technology.
  • Background Image
  • Established in April 1910, the School of Architecture at Seoul National University of Science and Technology is the first educational institution for architectural training in Korea. SeoulTech introduced the 5 year Bachelor of Architecture Program in professional architectural education in 2002, again the first of its kind in Korea. We redesigned a curriculum that introduced practical studio experiences, including partnerships with industry and global initiatives. We combined pragmatic tradition of quality and frontier spirit that are directly responsive to the changing needs of society. In recent years, our school has become an even better place to pursue an architectural education. A new home for the Department of Architecture is being built and we will move into the new facilities in January 2014. For over a century, the School of Architecture at SeoulTech has been a frontier in architectural education, and we are continually committed to producing future leaders of architectural and urban professions.
  • Essential to our inter-professional philosophy is the cooperative, team-oriented learning environment that we foster. SNUST Architecture itself is small and intimate; students have immediate and easy access to professors, administrators know students by name, and the friendly atmosphere extends from faculty to staff to students. Collegiality, rather than competition, is the defining characteristic of our community. I’m proud to be department chair of such an outstanding program, whose core commitments to interdisciplinary, experiential learning, integration with the professional community, diversity, and community define our past, shape our present, and guide our future.
  • Thank you for visiting SNUST Department of Architecture.
