The programme is aimed at developing building and other components of the built environment amidst natural and environmental challenges of the mangrove swamp. It emphasizes on the relationship between the environment and the increasingly dominating schemes of urban development and renewable energy resources. The programme is the first in the line of a two-tier system aimed at producing highly skilled architects capable of responding to a rapidly changing world within the context of sustainability and globalization. It further focuses on remaking the image of local, cultural, land and seascape as contemporary places to live and work with architecture that is functional, resilient and aesthetically pleasing through the use of cutting edge information technology.
