The Department of Landscape Architecture was established in 1982 under the College of Science. In 1983, the Department was transferred to the College of Agriculture. The goal of the department is to train students as professionals in landscape architecture. It also emphasizes the importance of planning, design, and solving environmental problems.
In response to the rapid changes in environment and the great need of society, landscape architects increasingly serve not only as landscape designers and planners, but also as advocates of landscape rescue and environment conservation. Landscape architects are called upon to create landscapes that form a harmonious relationship between nature and man – respecting the ecological system while making it suitable for human settlements.
