Architecture Studies

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

The creation of a building or space that is not only aesthetically appealing, but is also structurally sound and within legal parameters involves planning and design work from someone familiar with the principles of architecture.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

M.Des. in Public Space Design

Students displaying their work from a public space design course, which explored Urban Planning through mapping. Course: Making Places Public places are sometimes the sites for conflict of race, class, gender, and economics. But they are also places of synergy and the collective where individuals and communities can interact with each other. In the Indian context where pastoral communities consider grasslands as common land that everyone’s cattle can graze in or streets that become makeshift markets where street vendors have traditionally congregated to sell their produce. With emerging technologies such as the Internet of things and cloud computing, we will increasingly connect everyone and everything in a seamless network, further blurring the boundaries between public and private. All of this adds varied dimensions to the word “public”. It is critical to understand this changing dynamic of public space.
