The Associate of Science in Architectural Studies programme, offered by the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, provides a sound education and training for students to become technically competent personnel in the architectural profession.

Graduates may apply to enter full-time architectural studies degree programmes offered by CityU and other local institutions, or pursue further study with credit transfer in overseas universities.
