Digital technologies are rapidly changing the way buildings and urban spaces are designed, constructed and inhabited. On this course you’ll learn the theoretical knowledge and technical skills required to produce innovative blueprints for architecture in the digital era.
The past decade has shown rapidly growing expectations for built spaces with capacity to respond dynamically to changes such as shifts in demographics, new and emerging technology, climate change and ageing populations. These are global challenges and opportunities which demand architects and designers with the ability to creatively shape the way that buildings, landscapes and cities age and adapt over time.
Graduates go on to careers leading future practice in the digital creative industries, architecture and urban design, digital technology development and environmental design consultancy. The course also fully prepares graduates who are interested in pursuing doctoral studies towards a PhD.
