In NUS Architectural Conservation, students acquire practical experience through hand-on training at dedicated research and training centres in Singapore, Malaysia, and in design studios. NUS-Baba House, Architectural Conservation Laboratory in Singapore, and NUS-Tun Tan Cheng Lock Centre for Asian Architectural and Urban Heritage in Melaka, Malaysia are the unique resources available to the Department of Architecture to facilitate handson training and research into architectural conservation and historic urban environment. Through lectures, site visits and working with experienced conservation practitioners, the students gain knowledge and hands-on experience to develop repair techniques and strategies in stained glass, roof tiles, floor tiles, stone, terrazzo, wall tiles, metals, decorative finishes, and their cleaning methods.
