The fields of architecture and urban design are central to some of the most pressing societal, environmental and cultural challenges currently facing humanity. Graduates in this field need to master a wide range of skills, from design, engineering, and technology to critical thinking.

This master’s program provides the knowledge and know-how necessary to practice architecture and urban design professionally.

The program emphasizes a research-oriented approach, anticipating future challenges for architects and urban designers. The profile is both practical and design-led, academic as well as theoretical.

The program is largely project-based, and you will have the opportunity to work in design studios with experienced professional architects and researchers. These studios form lab environments, targeting current specializations within the field. They are supplemented with course modules looking at history, theory, design, and technology, as well as leadership and professional practice.

You will have access to world-class infrastructure, including studio spaces, an architecture library, model workshops, and digital fabrication, a robot lab, and several research groups and centers. A national and international network is provided through collaborations and partnerships with external practitioners, researchers, stakeholders, and industry.

The fundamental areas of the program address subjects such as applied architecture development, urban architecture, healthcare architecture, sustainable development, and more.

Studying this program will prepare you for an incredibly rewarding and exciting career in architecture and urban design and many of our graduates go on to work in leading architectural firms, urban design and city planning offices, and governmental organizations — both in Sweden and internationally.
