In my role as the Dean of the College, it is my pleasure to welcome and address you through our official website in an attempt to reflect a clear vision of the College of Architecture and Planning in Sudan University of Science & Technology (SUST), and shed light on its creativity and developmental concepts. Today, the College is one of the most famous professional and largest colleges in SUST and a proud member of its community. The origins of the College dates back to the year 1971In the year 1975 the Civil and Architecture Engineering Departments in SUST (Formerly known as Khartoum Polytechnic) have been merged bringing together the two departments to form the College of Architecture and Planning. Since then the College began to thrive, grow and prosper vigorously over the past decades until it has reached its current notable position as Architecture and Planning College, and one of the top colleges locally and regionally. However, with the support and assistance provided by SUST’s High Management and our commitment to innovative education along with the persevering spirit of the staff, faculty and students, the College will keep moving forward on all fronts and continue its progress into a brighter future over the coming years. Today the College is led by distinguished professors, talented faculty and a skilled, dedicated staff who work together closely and in harmony to support our mission and create an environment in which students flourish, both personally and professionally The College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Sudan of Science and Technology is a place where advance design and construction of the built environment meet in unique ways. Currently it offers a Bachelor's degree program, three Master’s degree programs and a Diploma degree program. Based on our future vision, we aim to achieve even greater growth, by addressing sustainability issues and ecological sound design as well as various construction operations. Today, the College houses 570 undergraduates, 60 master’s and 175 diploma students, in addition to 32 staff members with different degrees ranging from professors to lecturers, all of them are full-staff member. On the other hand, the College will seek to establish extensive academic exchange relations and cooperation with universities and research institutes locally and abroad. It is a truism that architecture and planning require imagination, intelligence and skill. For this specific reason, the College endeavors to instill these attributes within each of its students by adhering to a philosophy devoted to the integration of artistic creativity, intellectual desire and technical acuity. in the same manner, the College will continue to provide them with the required competencies to acquire new skills and gain new and in-depth knowledge on the most important tools necessary for the designer to innovate and create, the planner to develop new policies, the architect to well organize, and the contractor to collect all relative data and plans to turn them into reality with high efficiency.
