Program Description 课程介绍
The 4+ Internship in Architecture Program offered by the Faculty of Architecture at The University of Hong Kong is a stand-alone program intended for individuals who have completed or is to complete a five-year undergraduate professional program in architecture or its equivalent. It aims at providing architecture students with an opportunity to get exposed to HKU’s curriculum and faculties and multi-cultural working environment in the leading architectural design office. Target students of the program include Year 5 undergraduate students and graduate students who majored in architecture, potentially pursuing a higher degree in architecture and/or related fields at HKU or universities overseas.
The program consists of design studio, field trips, lectures and internship in architectural offices, which are to be led by both HKU teachers and experienced professionals (architects, landscape architects, engineers) practicing in Shanghai. The 16 weeks of training will help the students get prepared for multi-cultural academic and working environment. Students advance and expand their theoretical and analytical skills with strengthened disciplinary knowledge. The program is also designed to meet the requirements of the practical/internship training modular for Year 5 undergraduate students majored in architecture in Mainland China.
