A special feature of this course is the unique blend of practice and theory, which underpins the student projects. As a student on an M.Sc (Urb) course in the School, you will belong to a Postgraduate Design Community. You will study some modules alongside students from other art and design disciplines as well as the closer construction, environmental and engineering disciplines. Through participation in a common program, you will experience a sharing of knowledge and access to a wide range of staff and resources. Practical and theoretical elements will be assessed both during and at the end of each module. The final form of the assessment strategy and criteria is the result of collaboration between student and staff. The course is centered upon active learning. You will be engaged in a wide variety of activities. The ‘design brief’ acts as the main vehicle for the student experience, complemented by lectures, seminars and demonstrations, which aim to encourage the development of problem-solving skills and creative investigation.
The course is delivered by a highly-skilled and experienced staff team and is supported by guest lectures and industry contacts. Learning is studio-based and you will have access to an extensive model-making workshop for experimentation/model-building, as well as CAD/CAM and RP (Rapid Prototyping) facilities accessing all the workshops and the Laser Cutting and extensive digital printing facilities. We have new state-of-the-art studio facilities, CAD suites and workshops, boasting a full range of modern model making equipment. The studios have 24/7 swipe card access, offering you an individual workspace. Studios and workshops are dedicated to the architecture department.
Methods will include lectures, tutorials, seminars, practical work in studio and building and site visits. Students will support tutor lead learning with the use of textbooks, journal papers, electronic databases and other self-learning materials including e-learning materials.
