Master in Architecture


Program Description

The Master in Architecture is a two-year English-taught programme which combines both a traditional curriculum of architectural education and a profiled programme structured around three major themes: architecture, European urbanisation and globalisation.

The Master in Architecture educates future architects with specific additional skills in research and knowledge in the field of urban design particular to European urbanism and globalisation.

The Master in Architecture focuses on:

  • architectural and urban design on different scales in a European context, with an emphasis on the strategic aspects of design
  • architectural and urban research with architectural means (plans, sections, elevations, diagrams, perspectives), focusing particularly on European urbanisation
  • research on the impact of globalisation on cities and regions, as well as on the comparative analysis of typologies in architecture and urbanisation worldwide

At the University of Luxembourg, we understand architecture as a profession within which all the actors are constantly anticipating a change in their work context, whether demographic, political, environmental, cultural or technological change. Therefore, architectural design goes hand in hand with architectural research. The Master in Architecture’s research element involves both experimental research by design and scientific research in architecture and urbanism.
