Welcome to the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning (DAUP) at Qatar University!

Our department is a unique educational hub and research center for the built environment fields (such as architecture, urban design, urban planning, and more) in the State of Qatar.

We offer three degrees at the undergraduate and graduate level.

- Our Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) program is a 5-year professional degree across a wide range of design, technical and theory subjects.

- Our Master of Urban Planning and Design (MUPD) program is a 2-year graduate degree focusing on urban design and planning challenges in Qatar, across the region, and around the world.

- Our Doctorate of Engineering with a focus in Architecture/Urban Planning (Ph.D.) program is a 3-5 year program of supervised research into the built environment across a wide range of subjects.

We also embed the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030 and Qatar National Development Framework (QNDF 2032) in the educational process through creative teaching/learning experiences, innovative research, and community service with local and international stakeholders to achieve the goal of a more resilient and sustainable built environment for Qatar in the 21st century and beyond.

The DAUP has strong ties to professional industry and practice in Qatar and worldwide fostered by the research-led teaching and services of our faculty and staff. We encourage and support faculty and students to seize the numerous opportunities for Research and Development (R&D) funding available in Qatar, and elsewhere in the world through multi-disciplinary collaborations, to further develop their expertise and knowledge in the field.

We hope you will enjoy the virtual tour of our department. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future.
