Masters in Urban Development in North America 2017. SCI-Arc’s M.Arch 1 is a three-year, seven-term, professional Master of Architecture program. The core of the program involves architectural experimentation and learning through making. Open to applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in any field of study, the M.Arch 1 program requires attendance for the fall and spring terms of the first two years, and the fall, spring, and summer terms of the third year. The curriculum is horizontally integrated and vertically progressive, starting with a four-semester core sequence in which students develop a framework for the discipline and a strong foundation for critical inquiry and experimentation. Each semester’s design studio is integrally linked with courses in visual, cultural, and applied studies, giving insights into the relationship between architecture and technological advances, representation, and social change. With each progressive semester, students become more sophisticated in addressing complex architectural issues while testing their own intellectual and design convictions. Upon completion of the core sequence, students are invited to choose from a variety of advanced studios and seminars in which they investigate the latest innovations in technology, advance new approaches to design analysis, and innovate through applied research. The program puts a particular emphasis on the production of architecture, and the ways in which making produces a unique intelligence in the field. Students complete their studies with a thoroughly researched independent architectural thesis, which they present in a public exhibition. The M.Arch 1 program is accredited by NAAB (the National Architectural Accrediting Board). [-]

The Master in Integrated Architecture Projects enables architects to work globally in a professional environment characterized by increasing technical and organizational complexity, on a global stage. In this degree students learn to work as is done in the leading architectural firms in the world, This is organized into "offices interdisciplinary projects," a model of collaborative work pioneer in Spain with proven success, which has enabled students School of Architecture, Engineering and Design at the Universidad Europea de Madrid win prizes for their projects in international competitions. In the workshops the students come into contact with the most innovative hardware and software for the development of the project, both to design and to manufacture and prototyping. They are held in the FAB LAB European University of Madrid, one of the few centers of its kind existing in Spain. There are trained in interactive and evolutionary simulations made with parametric design and BIM possibilities, the benefits of prototyping which enable laser cutters, 3D printers, milling machines and the use of robots, can become familiar with the handling of all these elements . These workshops are taught in English to strengthen the international profile of students. In addition, an international stay at the Architectural Association in London, one of the schools of architecture's world-class to attend an intensive workshop on digital manufacturing is done. And at the end of the Master, a new international stay is required, this time of three months, at the Institute of Architectural Design at the University of Tongji in Shanghai to experience firsthand the urban development of China, a place it has become a huge laboratory, where they are by testing the possibilities of the most important architectural trends. Student profile Access roads to the title and income profile recommended. To access the master will need to be in possession of a Spanish or another issued by an institution of higher education in the European Higher Education Area that entitle the issuing country for access to Master studies university degree. They may also access graduates from outside the EHEA educational systems without approval of their titles, after verification by the University that those certify a level of education equivalent to the corresponding Spanish university degrees and that in the issuing country for access to postgraduate studies. The income profile recommended is to graduate in architecture and involved in architectural and experienced in the field of architecture design engineering. s team members profiles. Both profiles increasingly require an integrated view of the design process and understand the mission and vision of the other profiles that are not their specialty to work more efficiently. Graduate profile Most graduates of the Master in Integrated Projects Architecture is a professional expert in management and coordination of integrated projects of architecture in which are active and comprehensive way, as justified below, different disciplines and profiles: sociology, technology, sustainability, communication and project design integrating all the above. They will be able to integrate into the global world in enterprises and institutions dedicated to Architecture, Engineering, and Communication Architecture professionals. Furthermore, this master incorporates the training of graduates in research techniques applicable to an emerging sector which still has many aspects unbound. That is why the master has a double track-oriented professional practice or research as alternative routes. The title qualifies for the following professional areas: Coordinator-responsible for integrated projects of Architecture and professional member of multidisciplinary team of Architectural, to be coordinated with other team members profiles.
