A Review on KAED's Performance in the Implementation of the Islamicisation of Acquired HUman Knowledge (IoHK) in Architecture and Built Environment
This paper reports on a study reviewing the performance of the Kulliyyah of Architecture and Environmental Design (KAED) International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) in the implementation of Islamicisation of Acquired Human Knowledge (IoHK) in architecture and the built environment in programmes it conducts. Using quantitative data on outputs in the key areas of teaching and learning and in research and publication outputs of its academic staff and students over a period of 17 years since its establishment in 1996 KAEDâ€™s performance, in terms of effort in implementing IoHK, has been obvious but the level of achievement is considered mediocre. Acknowledging that more effort is required the paper concludes with recommendations on the best way forward for KAED. The paper also provides recommendations on how best to bring the IoHK effort to the global scene so as to benefit other universities keen to implement IoHK in architecture and the built environment and calls upon the Muslim Ummah to preserve Islamic architectural and cultural heritage for the benefit of future generations.
