This Advanced Architectural Design programme is for students who have completed at least 120 credits at Master's level (from an Architectural Diploma or other equivalent programme). The programme is a one year part-time 'top-up' Master's degree worth 60 credits. It aims to raise particular aspects of the research and design of the students' thesis design project that they have undertaken in the units of the Diploma in Architecture (or equivalent programme), to a more focused and advanced level. These specialised architectural design areas and options could come from a wide range of areas: urban, theoretical, representational, constructional or environmental issues. It creates the opportunity to produce some of the most architectural advanced design in the school. It will build on the school's internationally and professionally recognised prize-winning design work. This programme leads to enhanced architectural career prospects in the profession, and the potential for converting the research into part of a PhD.
The university is investing £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street is a short walk from the Greenwich Campus and this programme will be delivered there from 2014.
The aims of the programme are:
To introduce you to the environment and support you towards the diploma thesis project or part of it, in a unit, to a focused higher level To enhance employment opportunities with a major piece of advanced design To be part of, and engage with, some of the best work in the school and across the world.
