Philosophy, Importance and Objectives of the Program
Bachelor of Science Program in Architectural Intelligence and Design Thinking focuses on responding to the change of design paradigm and combining the expertise of needed in the 21st century by developing design innovations that respond to a specific target group of international standards. This will increase the ability of Thai designers to be accepted both at domestic and abroad. Including an understanding of the social, cultural, and technological context that constantly changing which will result in the quality of the design to be able to express identity.
Focusing on increasing work efficiency (Productivity) and the ability to compete (Competitive Advantage) by practicing digital technology skills with architecture. This will create more opportunities for career options that enable students to expand their knowledge and expertise the in-depth knowledge or special ability.
Designing the architectural must come from the creation of design concepts systematic (Design Thinking Process) with rules and regulations that able to investigate. Gathering the information and emphasizing participation skills which interact and learn with the community to create the understanding of economic, social, cultural and ecological dimension which lead to the analysis by accessing the quality of life and the environment in an integrated way of Synthesis, Having a creativity which resulting in quality architectural results. Originating the extension of new design innovations based on social capital, culture, technology and resources with sustainable development.
Therefore, the creation and development of the curriculum is carried out by basing on an understanding of changes in society and technology allowing multidisciplinary integration.
This is also considered the mission, vision, university development plan, and National Qualifications Framework for Higher Education to create graduates who are ready to pursue a career with quality, having knowledge and understanding of morals, ethics, and professional ethics in architecture including innovation and modern technology.
Importance of the program
From the rapidly changing of the design process ideas and current construction technology which including the development of economy, society, culture, and language, resulting in technological leap, the way of living, and the emergence of new technology such as Building Information Modeling: BIM, Artificial Intelligence: AI, Augmented Reality: AR which causes changes at the global level in the architectural profession, including concepts and design theories. The using of tools and technology expand the scope of learning and practice without limiting knowledge to design. Not only to meet the aesthetic needs but also a design to develop and respond to the utility that is more complex of different needs. There is a consideration of the integrated building resource management through a combination of creative thinking along with the understanding and applying computer technology innovations. Through the process of designing, drawing, estimation, presentation, construction control and building resource management, an economic basis society and culture of the country that is continuously changing into internationalization. From the above reasons taken into consideration Bachelor of Science Program in Architectural Intelligence and Design Thinking (international program) appropriate for changes to the above situation and supports the establishment.
This competency-based international program in Architectural Intelligence and Design Thinking emphasizes on the production of graduates with the following qualifications:
– Having skills to apply new professional knowledge to generate solutions for the future global challenges
