The international branch of the School of Design is based in the Engineering Building. The building boasts a modern Art Deco style, and was designed by Slovakian-Hungarian master architect Laszlo Hudec. It has a prominent position and high value in the field of architectural art, and serves as an important landmark for design professionals and students to learn from and yearn for.\
