How will tomorrow's built environment be designed and constructed? Architectural Computation at The Bartlett School of Architecture equips students with the skills to create generative and responsive forms, through exposure to real programming environments.

About this degree

On completion of the programme, students will be able to use computational techniques in architecture, understand and predict the consequences of their design actions through computational processes, integrate their predictions into the design process, and carry out self-sufficient research into new methods and processes.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of five compulsory modules (75 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits), plus students take optional modules to the value of 45 credits.

A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered.

Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MSc in Architectural Computation. Upon successful completion of 120 credits, you will be awarded a PG Dip in Architectural Computation.

Why study this degree at UCL?

In REF 2014 46% of The Bartlett’s research was rated 4* i.e. “world-leading”, with a further 35% recognised as 3* i.e. “internationally excellent”.* The Bartlett submitted the largest quantity of 4* world-leading research outputs (156 items) of any university submitting to the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning sub-panel. On “Research Environment”, which grades the “vitality” and “sustainability” of the research environment, The Bartlett received the highest score for submission to the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning sub-panel. 

Students on this programme are taught by experts and architects in a unique studio environment with access to state-of-the-art technology and facilities. 

Located in London, we are at the heart of a large cluster of creative architects and engineering firms, next to the UK's seat of government and finance and with all the resources of a world city to hand.

The new architecture coming out of The Bartlett is characterised by a high level of invention and creativity. The school is internationally known as a centre for innovative design.

Teaching and learning

The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops and seminars as well as individual and collaborative projects. Assessment is through unseen examination, coursework (including 3000-word essay, learning log, digitally fabricated piece and documentation, short video piece, and physical piece with video documentation) practical exercises and the dissertation.

What are we looking for?

When we assess your application we would like to learn:

  • why you want to study Architectural Computation at graduate level
  • why you want to study Architectural Computation at UCL
  • what particularly attracts you to the chosen programme
  • how your academic and professional background meets the demands of this challenging programme
  • where you would like to go professionally with your degree

Together with essential academic requirements, the personal statement is your opportunity to illustrate whether your reasons for applying to this programme match what the programme will deliver. Applicants who have who have a portfolio are strongly recommended to submit it when they apply.

Careers

After completing the programme, most graduates go on to join leading architectural and engineering practices, either directly with design teams or with specialist modelling groups. Alumni have also joined (or founded) cutting-edge emerging digital design practices such as United Visual Artists and Moving Brands, or moved into academic research.

Employability:

Our MSc provides a full learning experience with set projects and structured learning. It can be taken by those without any computational experience or those looking for industry-applicable skills.
