MSc in Architecture

USI Università della Svizzera italiana
Campus Full time 4 semesters September 2017 Switzerland Mendrisio

L'Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio aims to create the new architect, capable of taking on the developements that have occurred in the profession in an effective way. [+]

Goals and Contents The Master of Science in Architecture offers the opportunity to acquire the most advanced theoretical knowledge and operative skills for the practice of contemporary architectural design. Architectural design is taught through its disciplinary foundations and is closely related with technological innovation, environmental issues, models of territorial management and the themes of restoration and reestablishment of the historical, architectural and environmental heritage. The objective the Master pursues is to train professionals who, on the basis of the acquired awareness and in-depth knowledge of the complexity of current architectural practice, are competent both to carry out the functions of direct architectural design and to coordinate the different specialists involved in professional projects. The study programme consists of a series of theoretical lectures and design studios dedicated to arguments and methods of architectural design in its different forms (housing, services industry, culture, etc.) and scales (from interior design to the architectural structure, all the way up to the urban and territorial plan). The programme draws on two different but correlated teaching approaches. The first consists in theoretical courses pertaining to the methodological, technological and historical knowledge that will enable future architects to explore central themes of contemporary architectural culture critically. The second approach entails, each semester, the choice of a design studio which focuses on a specific project typology, whether architectural or urban. In the years of the Master students are asked to produce one theoretical paper on topics of their own choice with the approval of a teacher.The last... [-]

The Master’s Programme in Educational Sciences: Learning in Interaction invites you to tackle these topics and more. [+]

MSc Degrees in Arts. We never learn alone. We always learn by interacting with someone or something. Explore the complexity of cognitive and social learning processes Do you want to disentangle and understand the complex interaction of development, education, and learning? Are you curious about how processes in educational contexts relate to the cognitive and social development of children, youth, and adults? The Master’s Programme in Educational Sciences: Learning in Interaction invites you to tackle these topics and more. Education can sometimes be dull and ineffective. We can change that through recognizing and developing the concept that we never learn alone. We always learn by interacting with someone or something, such as: people who are more knowledgeable than us (teachers or more advanced fellow students); people who are equally knowledgeable as us (peers or in teams); or artefacts (the environment around us, books, or computers). There are more and more opportunities to use multimedia in the classroom. But is it always effective? It is crucial that the source of learning connects with the way our memory operates. Only then children can find their way through the material. If you’re interested in learning about and carrying out high-quality research into these interactions, you can make a real difference in learning, teaching, and instruction. Research-focused This programme is offered by the Department of Child, Family, and Education Studies is a part of Utrecht University’s Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences. It is based in the research priority area Education and Learning, which... [-]
