Taking artistic background as the basis, the EAaD School Environmental Design Program is an application-oriented profession which emphasizes people-oriented design of the space environment, and encourages students to study different scales of landscape architecture and interior scenes. It supports student develop their logical thinking and learning competence in facing complex problems, as well as their team working and practical application abilities.
The four-year degree starts with design basics and spatial cognition that offers students a step-by-step training. The third year students are free to decide whether major in Architecture Interior Design or Landscape Design according to their career development direction. The curriculum lays the groundwork in courses of design basics, design history and theory, engineering technology, general courses, equipping students with skills and abilities of conceptual design innovation, design representation, modelling and technical solution.
In addition to the regular courses, the program also invites world-leading practitioners, specialists, and academics to deliver project-based workshop and masterclass, in order to help students learn and understand the industry development and trends.
International Environmental Design Class
The International Environmental Design Class is structured under the Environmental Design Program of EAaD School. It supports the concept of sustainable development, and relies on the ascendancy that brought by the cooperation between EAaD School and the alliance of Cumulus International Art Design colleges. This program will lead students to take an international perspective in the Architecture Interior Design, and explore the Interdisciplinary design, as well as focus on cultivating students' foreign language skills and cultural literacy.
Now, the EAaD School has established cooperation with California College of the Arts, Coventry University and many other famous universities, our students can directly enter these schools in the future.
