About the Program
Oman’s First Master Degree in Architecture and Urban Planning.
The Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Planning (MSc AUP) at GUtech is the first program in the whole region to offer both Architecture and Urban Planning as specializations. The MSc program capitalizes on the expertise accumulated by the faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at RWTH Aachen University and draws form the know-how of GUtech faculty behind the internationally accredited the BSc Urban Planning and Architectural Design program.
The program is designed to train fresh graduates and professionals to address the challenges of a rapidly urbanized world by seeking innovative approaches in the built environment.
The structure of the program offers students to specialize in either architecture or urban planning. The two specializations equally address societal, environmental, economic and cultural questions but react to them on different scales.
Architecture specialization focuses on the constructive, cultural and climatic qualities of buildings and their surroundings.
Urban Planning specialization is concerned with the design and planning qualities at the neighborhood, town and regional levels.
The MSc AUP program is structured to be offered on a full-time or part-time basis in block mode, over four semesters. The program encompasses a workload equivalent to 120 credit points in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) or 300 credit points in the Oman Qualification Framework (OQF).
