As the world’s first women's engineering college dedicated to educate and train female professionals, College of Engineering of Ewha Womans University is established in 1996. Upon reorganization in 2008, College of Engineering now consists of three schools – Computer & Electrical Engineering, Architecture, and Environmental & Food Engineering. 1325 undergraduate and 126 graduate students are enrolled in College of Engineering.
As an integral part of College of Engineering, Division of Architecture is comprised of Architecture and Architectural Engineering programs. Architecture program offers a five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree. Utilizing the unique environment of women only university, Architecture program strives to provide students with opportunities to participate in self-initiated programs and to foster leadership. Ten full-time faculty members of Architecture program along with five faculty members of Architectural Engineering program and outstanding adjunct professors are providing students with hands-on and in-depth architectural education. Through close interactions among students and faculty members, Architecture program endeavor to provide opportunity for student to develop leadership and competence as future female professionals. Most of full-time faculty members are also certified architects from Korea or abroad with variety of field experience. Based on their experience and through practical architectural design education, faculties of Architecture program are dedicated to educate future female architects with competence and leadership.
The educational goal of the program encompasses the wide range of topics including various scales of interior design, regional & community design, and environmental design as well as commercial structures and cultural facilities, and extension/reconstruction. Especially, Architecture program specializes in residential and interior design and the digital architectural design based on a state-of-art digital fabrication equipment. In addition, the program also offers a variety of courses on history, city planning theory, and architectural practices and technologies for future female architects to further enhance professional knowledge.
Ewha Womans University’s Architecture Program received an architectural education accreditation from the Korea Architectural Accrediting Board(KAAB) by following the KAAB’s architectural education curriculum guidelines. The program is acknowledged by both the Canberra Accord and the UNESCO-UIA Validation Council for Architectural Education (UVCAE). The architectural education qualification accreditation is stated as a requirement for architects and is becoming an international trend (Refer to www.kaab.or.kr). Professional degree programs for architectural education in Korea can be a 5-year professional degree undergraduate program or a 2-year-minimum professional degree graduate program, as chosen by the educational institute. To maintain the accreditation, the program must be evaluated regularly. The Korea Architectural Accrediting Board regularly evaluates the programs for accreditation by following the guidelines, deciding from the results on whether to grant a 5-year term, a 3-year term, a conditional 2-year term or temporary suspension or revocation of the accreditation. The next accreditation evaluation for Ewha Womans University’s Architecture program will be held in 2015.
