UTM M.Arch Part Time Programme Now Open for Applications!

UTM M.Arch Part Time Programme Now Open for Applications!

It’s here! The long awaited M.Arch (Part-Time) is now open for intakes. UTM have been working hard in converting and revamping the old B.Arch (LAM Part 2) SPACE programme, and now it’s finally available.

The interview will be conducted on 27 January 2017 (Friday) in UTM KL Campus Jalan Sultan Yahya Petra (old: Jalan Semarak). Apply online at the link below. The code of the programme is MBESA1BKA (remember to get this right or else you’ll be applying to the wrong programme!).


The UTM M.Arch PT spans 3.5 years (7 semesters), with the programme mirrors the Full-Time programme. However, the running of the studio differs slightly where students are required to be attached to a practice and conduct their studies integratively.

The programme will be conducted in part-time mode where classes/studios will be on weekends (Saturday/Sunday) in KL Campus. This is not a distance-learning or online programme; you have to be physically in UTM.

Basic Requirements:
a. Meets the general university requirements (SPM Credit in BM and Maths);
b. Holds a recognized undergraduate degree in architecture with at least 3.00cgpa**;
c. Certified with LAM Part 1***;
d. Have fulfilled at least 6 months working experience in related industry;
e. Must be attached to a practicing architecture firm through the duration of the studies; and
f. Passing the Intake Interview (27 January 2017).

**For candidates below 3.00, they must have at least 2 years of working experience in the related industry to compensate.
***Either automatic accreditation or passing independent exams.

Intake Interview Requirements:
i. Original personal documents
ii. Original certificates
iii. Portfolio of professional works as well as during studies (including anything else that might interest us)
iv. Reference letter from the current employer/practice indicating their support and endorsement.

Submission Day Guide

Submission Day Guide


Check your deadline first!
Day, Date, Time and Venue

Then follow the procedure below:

Deadline and Penalties

Adherence to deadline will be enforced strictly in this school. Injury Time of 30-minute segments will be in effect, subject to penalties.

1st segment: -5% (one grade down);
2nd segment: -10% (two grades down).

In standard practice, any submissions beyond the 2nd segment is considered non-submission. Penalties will be given only to the assessment of the submitted project. Other projects that have been assessed or will be assessed will not be affected by the penalty given.

For example: You’ve submitted your design drawings on time, but was late for your technicals by 15 minutes. The one grade down penalty will be applied to the technical assessment ONLY.

Submission time is only noted on the last sheet included. Meaning even if you’re there at 1400 but your last sheet arrives at 1635, the entire set will be considered non-submission.


You may submit on behalf of your friend, or have your friend submit on your behalf to your own risk.

Only stamped sheets can be used for Final Design Assessment.

The Coordinator will verify all sheets submitted. You should inform the Coordinator if you have pasted-on pieces on the spot. All white spaces will be noted to prevent cheating (by adding on last-minute pieces pasted on the sheets).
