Department Overview

(The Introduction to Simplified Chinese)

    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.

    Initially established in 1981 as the Department of Horticulture & Gardening and later renamed in 1989 as the Department of Landscape Architecture. During the period from 1981 to 1990, only the undergraduate Landscape Architecture degree was offered. Since 1991, the Department offers Landscape Architecture degrees both in the undergraduate and graduate levels. In response to the increasing interest in landscape topics, a Certificate program at the graduate level becomes available since 1997 which is targeted toward mid-career professionals and scholars.
