Architecture Studies

For those who want to receive an advanced degree in a specific field of study, attaining a Master of Science (MSc) degree is a good way to go. This type of postgraduate education can be accomplished in many different countries spanning the globe. Most degrees focus on developing innovative science and technology skills.

What is an MSc in Architecture Studies? While an MSc in Architecture Studies does not lead to architectural licensing, it does provide the in-depth knowledge of architecture helpful for many different professions. Students can acquire a solid education in architecture, building science, interior design, and urban design. MSc programs often offer students opportunities to conduct their own research and practically apply the knowledge they obtain. An MSc in Architecture Studies can lead to, and aid in, the pursuit of a doctorate degree.

The benefits of holding this degree include an upper hand when applying for jobs because students leave with a larger body of work in the field of architecture. This degree can give people the opportunity to put sustainable technology to practice in order to better communities through implementing socially conscious ways of living and building.

Since the cost of getting an MSc varies enormously from university to university and country to country, those who seek to enter into this type of program should look into specific schools to know the precise pricing.

People that have an MSc in Architecture Studies can find careers as interior designers after learning about design practice and history, computer applications, and environmental factors for interiors. They can also become urban planners, with a focus on rejuvenating cities and creating sustainable, healthy, and safe environments. Careers in construction management are a possibility as well, so students can put to use their knowledge of mechanical systems, lighting, ventilation, air quality, and building structure and assembly.

Master of Science in Urban Development (UD)

Background and Challenges

Urban growth is extensively transforming the face of the planet. For the first time in human history, more than half of the world's population now lives in towns and cities. With an average growth rate of 2.1% per annum from 1990-2003, the MENA region has one of the world’s most rapidly expanding populations, increasingly concentrated in urban areas.

Cities in both the MENA region and other parts of the world are engines of growth, providing a disproportionate share of income opportunities and access to services. At the same time, cities are places of growing social and economic inequality, with increasing numbers of people living in poverty and deteriorating living conditions. Furthermore, urbanization also poses a significant challenge in the 21st century, with an estimated 80% of global greenhouse gas emissions linked to urban areas. The enormous contribution of urban areas to global greenhouse gas emissions is set to increase even more.... [-]
