The course will investigate the integration of digital media in architectural and urban design at all three levels; creative (e.g. parametric, generative), operational and collaborative (e.g. BIM). Through collaborative design exercises, students will gain practical experience of working with diverse digital media and techniques to generate, evaluate and communicate design intelligence and information.
In addition to developing team working skills, they will also be encouraged to identify and follow individually tailored career paths in line with their individual interests and aspirations. The course is specifically designed to accommodate and support learner-directed professional development in three main areas of digital and integrated design: creative design, digital modelling/simulation, design information management. We aim to cultivate an intellectual climate, providing close links with innovative design practices, embracing experiential learning supported with state-of-the-art facilities and resources.
The course aims to:
- provide the students with a comprehensive understanding of technology-mediated design theories, methods and techniques in Architecture and Urban design.
- provide the students with the knowledge and understanding of diverse and integrated models of “digital design collaboration” in a highly cross-disciplinary setting.
- assist students in developing the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies in a highly competitive, global and technology-mediated design practice.
- promote high quality research skills in Design Computation and Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Students who successfully complete a Higher Degree go on to interesting and rewarding careers in architecture, the wider construction industry, management, higher education, the arts and conservation and many other specialisms to be found in the arts, architecture and the built environment.
The graduates of this programme are expected to go on to interesting and rewarding careers in architecture, engineering design, the wider construction industry, management, higher education, and many other specialisms to be found in the arts, architecture and the built environment. The course will develop reflective practitioners, who can operate in highly-technology-mediated, global and diverse design sectors. The creative and operational skills in utilizing diverse digital media in design will be of immediate advantage to employers in both architecture, engineering and construction sectors.
