The MSc program has six modules and comprises a study period of three semesters. The module’s contents are oriented toward integrated learning assignments which are directed by senior lecturers and external experts.
The contents are provided via different teaching methods like lectures, seminars, projects and internships. The self-study is assisted intensively during the attendance period and further supported through specific course materials and internal e-learning offerings. The MSc programme will conclude with the master thesis at the end of the third semester.
The aim is to conduct the thesis with the highest possible relation to practice and multidisciplinary together with cooperation partners, an engineering company or another School of the London South Bank University. The MSc in Digital Architecture and Fabrication is UK validated and Worldwide recognised The MSc program leads to the qualification of the worldwide acknowledged academic degree: Master of Science (MSc). The degree entitles to a PhD degree study and opens the admission to higher public service.
A qualification recognised as being equivalent to this evidence of a Bachelor’s or Diploma qualification, in exceptional cases also evidence of another final examination, for a course having major engineering science components (interior and product design, civil and mechanical engineering, as well as information technology).
Over at least six semesters evidence of normally at least one year’s professional experience in the field of building and construction evidence of a special, i.e. technical and methodological, aptitude based on a specialised portfolio and an explanatory report.
Digital technologies altered the field of architecture and the architectural profession significantly – from design to production. Against this background the study program incorporates the professional qualities of higher architectural education as well as the theoretic and operative aspects of information technology.
The study is based on the following principles:
Computer-aided methods as cross-linking of design, construction and fabrication process
Full-time study related to practice
Synergy and additional benefit out of the connections between university, companies and external professionals
The three semester MSc program addresses graduates of Architecture, Interior and Product Design, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, as well as Information Technology and related studies.
The Master program opens up various possibilities for a professional development, e.g. following occupational areas:
Employment in the area of Architecture, Building Construction, Engineering, Interior and Product Design
Specialisation and consultancy in the field of Computational Design and Robotic Construction
Admission to PhD study or employment in engineering research
Employment in higher public service.
