5.Discipline and Specialty Construction
Since the enrollment of undergraduates in 2000, the School adhered to the principle of cultivating talents and developed a highly featured discipline and specialty system, and started enrolling postgraduates since 2007. Currently, teachers come from disciplines and specialties,including architecture, urban-rural planning, landscape architecture and artistic design and have abundant achievements in teaching and research.
This specialty has 1 professional-degree master's program—Landscape Architecture, and 1 professional-degree master training program—Civil and Water Engineering. The professional-degree master training program for civil and water engineering started enrollment since 2001 with two research directions set up: architectural design and relevant theories, and architectural technology and science; the professional-degree master’s program for landscape architecture started enrollment since 2016 with four research directions set up: landscape architecture planning and design, ecological landscape and restoration technology, traffic landscape engineering and technology, digital landscape and public art.
This specialty is a featured specialty of Chongqing Municipality’s universities and a first-class undergraduate specialty development discipline. A secondary discipline—Architecture— is set up in the field of architecture and civil engineering to enroll postgraduates. This discipline becomes a featured discipline and specialty groups among Chongqing’s universities when combining with the specialty of civil engineering into the discipline of civil architecture.Specialties are well supported with unique industrial and regional characteristics. Its talent cultivation system is highly recognized by the society for talent quality. This specialty is strong in schooling. Most of its teachers comes from the “Eight Old Universities” in the field of architecture and well-known domestic and foreign architectural universities. 58% of the teaching staff has senior titles. Professional teachers have two positions. On the current staff are 8 national first-class registered architects, 2 registered urban-rural planners, 1 first-class landscape architect, and 11 with engineering titles.
Landscape Architecture specialty
