Message from the Dean

Welcome to the College of Architecture and Design (CAD) at Phoenicia University.

This unique academic body follows an integrated and holistic educational approach to design fields which aims at equipping students with fundamental knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become independent lifelong learners, critical thinkers, problem solvers, and innovative designers as well as responsible citizens. The breadth and depth of the university course requirements at the university at large provide students with knowledge of fields outside their majors and hence develop interdisciplinary perspectives on issues they encounter throughout their lives.

Architects and designers have always been expected to possess far more than the knowledge and skills immediately pertinent to their majors which in itself is multi- and inter-disciplinary by its very own nature.

At CAD, each student shall experience a quality education with friendly colleagues, enjoy learning with dedicated professors, and be fully engaged in an intellectually and experientially stimulating academic environment.
