Study technical architecture at a university that has been awarded centre of excellence status by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). This course is suitable for architectural technology and architecture graduates, and those from associated built environment, engineering and design disciplines.

The MSc Technical Architecture provides advanced level study in contemporary technical, environmental and professional issues for architecture. You work on design-led projects focusing on the creative and technical consideration of architecture, and carry out a range of applied projects to develop professional skills. Core modules provide key knowledge and skills, which are then applied to design projects. Lectures and projects look at emerging theory and practice in architectural design, technology and construction for new and existing buildings within the UK and global contexts.

All modules address contemporary issues in architecture. There is a focus on environmental and sustainable design and how they are achieved through inventive thinking, creative technical design, scientific understanding and computer aided predictive modelling. You learn to use design software including REVIT, ArchiCad and Ecotect. The course assessments are flexible so you develop your own areas of interest and expertise. Projects can be located in your home country, either in the UK or internationally, or you can explore alternative locations.

The part-time route enables you to work and study at the same time, and you can link your projects to your practice.
In the final stage of the course you produce an original and significant piece of research-led design in the major project module, supported by a research module. This is usually in a subject relevant to your area of architectural interest, technical specialism or practice. You use these concluding modules to identify and develop critical expertise for your chosen career. The course has a strong professional focus. A key feature is an international field trip as part of the interdisciplinary practice module, which you study alongside students in associated professions such as planning, regeneration, real estate and surveying. Other professional modules allow you to work as a consultant to a real client or to study new or alternative forms of computer aided design.

The course is versatile in its teaching approaches and provides educational and professional development opportunities for a range of applicant profiles. These include UK and international students with architecture, construction or environment related degree qualifications and mature applicants with a proven track record in practice.

You are taught by an expert team of staff that includes experienced architectural, digital and environmental practitioners and academics. We also have teaching links with leading consulting engineers such as ARUP and Price and Myers.
