[+]

Master of Architecture Faculty of Architecture – CEPT University Architects play significant roles in the design and production of built environments. Those who focus on design are commissioned by clients to lead the work of the many experts who are required to put buildings and places together. When playing this leadership role architects ensure that the end product is architecturally meaningful, while meeting prosaic functional requirements. Many architects refrain from playing this expansive leadership role and prefer instead to focus on some aspect of the built environment. Others refrain from design altogether and focus instead on the study and critique of built environments in a bid to enrich architectural discourse. Yet others choose to proactively work with disadvantaged communities to improve living conditions. The two-year-long Master’s Program in Architecture leads to award of the M. Arch. degree.

Masters in Architecture in Asia 2018. The Master Programme of Interior Architecture offers students expertise in interior layout and design. The programme aims to provide interior architects with the ability to create aesthetic, functional and sustainable solutions, using their high standard of professional knowledge and based on a strong background in design. Architecture demands that students develop their “creative skills”. It also requires that students develop their cultural background. Students will, therefore, be asked to participate in various cultural activities and develop their entrepreneurial capacities. All the efforts will be spent in order to make their education a colorful one. Traditional architecture and building techniques occupy a part of the curriculum. But students will also be taught today’s techniques and materials. Each student will be expected to have acquired a good skill in computer-aided-design by the time of his graduation. Together with other skills, each student will have reached the capacity of finding an employment abroad easily. This is demanded by the current relationships of Turkey with the European Union and the international arena of architecture. A good knowledge of the history of civilizations, arts, architecture and finally of modern and contemporary architecture is considered as a must, or a prerequisite of, successful design. The student will be brought from the past to the present, and carried to the future of the world of architecture and other design disciplines. The number of courses and their hours decrease through the years until the last semesters. On the other hand, the numbers... [-]

Like the Department of Interior Design, the Department of Architecture belongs to the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. Despite some differences, much of the curriculum in these two departments follow similar lines which mostly run in parallel. This is so not only because the two disciplines are close relatives of each other, but also because it facilitates transfer of students from one discipline to the other if they wish to do so. The principal objective of this education is to teach students the important skills they would need in the future. Moreover, it is thought to be essential that students acquire a sincere love of this profession, if they are to be successful in the future. In this direction, besides obligatory practice in offices or the construction sites, students will be introduced the realities of professional life under dynamic circumstances – may this be within or outside the academic life. In summary, this program aims to educate students to be good designers. With their competence in foreign languages, their developed entrepreneurial capacities, and finally, a sound knowledge of architecture, each student will become a successful professional. [-]

UCSI University
Campus Full time 2 years January 2018 Malaysia Kuala Lumpur

This Master of Architecture will enable students to engage with current public expectations of architectural practice and trends, particularly towards sustainable designs. [+]

Architecture is the art of designing the human built environment. Buildings are one of the most visible productions of man, and vary greatly in design, function, and construction implementation across the globe. The vision that Architects conceive is projected onto the society and the built environment in which they practice. These conceptions and ideas will inadvertently have profound effects on the built environment, and consequently on the people who interact with that environment. Architecture is, therefore, an art form, the learning of which requires professional practice, personal artistic development and technical knowledge of building. The constant dialogue between society and the architect is what produces architecture - as a product and as well as a discipline. The School of Architecture and Built Environment understands that all those who study and work in the field of architecture need a framework for aesthetics and a functional appreciation for buildings and context. This can only be achieved via a thorough grounding in the design process, building sciences and technologies allied to an understanding of the important social, cultural, artistic, and historical factors which influence architecture. This philosophy underpins every teaching and research programme delivered at the School. The Master of Architecture programme is a 2-year full time professional degree. It is designed for individuals who have already successfully completed a 3-year undergraduate professional architectural programme. This Master of Architecture will enable students to engage with current public expectations of architectural practice and trends, particularly towards sustainable designs.
