Department of Landscape Architecture

Destruction of natural resources which arose due to changing environmental factors of urban and rural areas, revealed importance of making decisions about planning attentively. This situation has led to an interdisciplinary approach to environmental issues. Therefore, Landscape architecture Department was founded with an intent of educating qualified staff for a comprehensive education in the field of ecology, design, architecture and behavioral science within the Landscape Architecture and about environmental design planning principles. The department was founded as the newest department of our Faculty, in 1985.

Graduates of Landscape Architecture have knowledge and skills about environment arrangement and land planning works in both urban and rural areas. They can work as a landscape architecture in Parks and Gardens of Directorate, architecture offices, construction companies, landscape offices, private plantations or they can run their own business.
