Urban  Design  and  Landscape  Division  of  the  Department  of  Architecture  deals  with  the  designing  of  human  activity  spaces  outside  the  buildings.  Boundaries  and  Domains  of  Urban  Design  (UD)  and  Landscape  Design  (LSD)  is  blurred  and  depends  more  on  emphasis  put  on  the  design.  UD  focuses  more  on  physical  built-environment,  hard-scape,  urban  enclosed  spaces  and  relationship  between  complexes  of  buildings.  The scale ranges from neighbourhood to the whole city.  LSD,  on  the  other  hand,  focuses  more  on  the  biological  environment,  soft-scape,  natural  elements,  ecosystems  and  its  relationship  with  the  built  environment.  The  scale  ranges  from  household  to  the  whole  region  where  human  activity  takes  place.  UD  is  concerned  with  the  design  of  public  realm  and  of  the  buildings,  places,  spaces  and  networks  that  make  up  our  towns  and  cities,  and  the  ways  people  use  them.  It  is  an  approach  that  draws  together  many  different  sectors  and  professions,  and  it  includes  both  the  process  of  decision-making  as  well  as  the  outcomes  of  design.  LSD  is  concerned  with  the  design  of  outdoor  areas,  landmarks,  and  structures  to  achieve  environmental,  social-behavioral,  or  aesthetic  outcomes.  It  involves  the  systematic  investigation  of  existing  social,  ecological,  and  soil  conditions  and  processes  in  the  landscape,  and  the  design  of  interventions  that  will  produce  the  sustainable  human  activity  areas.  At  the  undergraduate  level,  UD  and  LSD  division  offers  introductory  courses  on  complex  urban  and  natural  environment  design  issues  of  professional  B. Arch program.  At  postgraduate  level,  the  division  offers  courses  on  more  advanced  and  provocative  level,  which  lead  to  specialized  and  research-based  postgraduate  degrees  like  M.  Arch;  M.S  Arch  (Urban  Design);  M.S  Arch  (Landscape  Design)  and  PhD.
