Course summary

This programme explores architecture and urban design through the prism of people and space. It offers an increased specialism to those interested in the research and design of the built environment intending to take either an academic pathway or a specific direction within their current professional practice. The programme addresses the study of architecture and cities using the theoretical and analytical framework of space syntax as well as wider the–oretical and analytical approaches. Students learn to specialise in one of several streams related to contemporary world challenges: architecture and computing, sustainable urbanism, social inclusion and exclusion, informal settlements, spatial cognition, the physical and immaterial dimensions of social networks and design innovation.

Careers

Graduates of the programme go on to many different careers: many have ploughed their knowledge back into furthering their architectural/design careers; In the past few years an increasing number of graduates have obtained jobs at prestigious architectural, urban design and urban planning firms working within top multi-diciplinary design and planning teams. Some others have gone into policy-making and worked for local or regional authorities; and some have progressed to PhD degrees and have obtained academic positions in top universities worldwide.

Employability

This programme enhances students' intellectual and design abilities in the field of urban/architectural theory, architectural/urban morphology and the social aspects of the urban environment. Graduates of this programme can be involved in both professional and academic activities. Graduates who choose to go into practice will have a leading edge in evidence-informed and research-based design. Those who choose an academic path will have the advanced knowledge and skills required for high-level academic positions.
