What will I learn?

This research-led Masters course will prepare you to become a leader and innovator in contemporary practice. It will equip you with the skills and knowledge that will enable you to develop innovative yet contextually appropriate solutions to challenges of major consequence and complexity.

The course will focus on how new technologies such as UAVs and drones will change and effect buildings and architecture of the future. You will develop project management, BIM and digital design skills and work with your peers to design buildings that address the future need for transportation through air.

Real world issues will be explored including zero-energy housing, contemporary urban design and healthy and resilient cities.

It has been developed to encourage the sharing of international and cultural experiences to enrich understanding, and to equip you to respond appropriately to different design contexts.
