Life at Faculty

In UKM, students will be exposed to exciting opportunities to expand their learning experience especially through their studio-based projects. Learning in a tight-knit studio environment, students will be able to work closely with faculty members and make meaningful connections with their peers on a daily basis. Design studio often involves learning and experiencing activities outside the faculty that includes engaging with various communities of different backgrounds and visits to various cities, villages, buildings, construction sites, historical and cultural sites, architecture firms and possibly even to the jungle. Students are trained throughout the learning process to be versatile, able to think on their feet, and ready to take up responsibilities.
