The Master in Advanced Architecture is articulated in three different programs: MAA01, MAA01+OTF and MAA02. During the first year (October 2017 – June 2018) the students enrolled in the programs will work together in a common educational platform, with a common organization and academic structure. After the completion of MAA01, students enrolled in MAA01+OTF or MAA02 will follow two different organizations and academic structures.
MAA02 combines the first year Master with a second year of investigation to develop a thesis project. During this second year students are required to deal with a project counting on the possibility to develop it with international faculty and enterprises, highly specialized in different fields. MAA+OTF combines MAA01 with a postgraduate program called Open Thesis Fabrication (OTF), which is an intensive applied research program that combines Academy and Industry. Nowadays its focus is on pylos projects and self sufficiency. There is also the possibility to extend the master in two years, during this second year the aim is to focus on your own thesis project.

This 2 year Master in Urban Climate and Sustainability (MUrCS);
· gives you a critical understanding of the complexity of urban sustainability and the need for local action to combat global climate change.
· offers several professional pathways in leading sustainable urban climate change adaptation/mitigation
· enables you to operate in senior positions – in both the public and the private sectors – to lead sustainable and climate oriented planning.
· is open for both existing urban professionals as well as those with multidisciplinary environmental backgrounds.
The curriculum is designed to inter-link three thematic areas:
· Thematic Stream 1: Planning
· Thematic Stream 2: Management
· Thematic Stream 3: Science
· Core Module: Basics & General
The programme language is English.
Mobility of both students and staff is instrumental to a rich learning experience and is a key added value to the already well-established postgraduate education pathways at partner institutions. MUrCS offers a range of mobility experiences under different educational, professional, geographical, socio-cultural and language environments along the study path. The overall objective of creating a new skill/profession by integrating knowledge to manage the complex task of leadership in Urban Climate and Sustainability makes interactions between the streams necessary throughout the whole course. Even if students focus on their respective specialisms during different parts of the programme, the cohort is kept together as much as possible, to encourage cross-subject activities – crucial for an integrated approach. This will be further strengthened by the continuity of the transverse skills modules.
Each intake is structured as follows:
1. Semester 1 at GCU in Glasgow, starts with core modules, common for all students and offered with the participation of all partners and selected experts. This semester also includes research methods and transverse skills (professional orientation) blocks.
2. Semester 2 takes place at LAMK in Finland for all students. This semester includes 30 ECTS offered by the host partner (core or elective for different streams) and a further 15 ECTS of modules accomplished by teachers from the other partners.
3. Semester 3 offers students the first choice of study place. It is recommended to attach to the specialism HEI, while several modules are still offered by other partners. These may adapt in time to the actual demand, or may be offered in ‘distance learning’ mode.
Semester 4 is devoted to thesis work, preferrably at the partner institution best aligned with the primary specialism. This work will be supervised by two teachers from different institutions reflecting students’ primary and secondary specialisms. It is also possible to conduct the thesis research work at one of the Associate Partner Universities.
