The M.Sc. Programme Integrative Technologies and Architectural Design Research is a multidisciplinary, research-oriented, experiment-based programme shaped around contemporary aspects of the built environment and practice.
The goal of the ITECH programme is to prepare students from different disciplines for the continuing advancement of technological and computational processes in architecture, as they merge the fields of design, engineering, construction and natural sciences. Coupling an intensive, critical and analytical approach to computational design, simulation and fabrication, the ITECH programme is focused on challenging the design space boundaries of current architectural and engineering practice. It seeks to provoke a re-examination of techniques, practices and theories of design in relation to the fields of engineering, robotics, digital manufacturing, material science and biology.
The 2 year professional masters degree programme is open to both local and international students with a recognized Bachelor degree in architecture (or architectural science), urban planning, civil engineering, biology or biomimetics, environmental engineering or similar engineering or natural science degrees.
All program courses are instructed in English.
