Digital Integrated Design MSc

Course Description

This is a hybrid programme that aims to integrate the principles of “DIGITAL DESIGN CREATIVITY” and “INTEGRATED/COLLABORATIVE DESIGN” under the same pedagogical framework. The course will investigate the integration of digital media in architectural and urban design at all three levels; creative (e.g. parametric, generative), operational and collaborative (e.g. BIM). Through collaborative design exercises, students will gain practical experience of working with diverse digital media and techniques to generate, evaluate and communicate design intelligence and information.

In addition to developing team working skills, they will also be encouraged to identify and follow individually tailored career paths in line with their individual interests and aspirations. The course is specifically designed to accommodate and support learner-directed professional development in three main areas of digital and integrated design: creative design, digital modelling/simulation, design information management. We aim to cultivate an intellectual climate, providing close links with innovative design practices, embracing experiential learning supported with state-of-the-art facilities and resources.

The course aims to:

- provide the students with a comprehensive understanding of technology-mediated design theories, methods and techniques in Architecture and Urban design.
- provide the students with the knowledge and understanding of diverse and integrated models of “digital design collaboration” in a highly cross-disciplinary setting.
- assist students in developing the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies in a highly competitive, global and technology-mediated design practice.
- promote high quality research skills in Design Computation and Building Information Modelling (BIM).

Why School of Architecture?

Highly rated research

Liverpool was the UK’s first Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) accredited University School of Architecture. Research lies at the core of our activities and we have highly rated international research in the fields of History and Theory and Environment and Process.

The activities of the research groups within these two fields provide the knowledge and expertise required by the professional discipline that the School serves, but also reach out into related areas in the visual arts, urban design, conservation and innovative technologies.

Career prospects

Students who successfully complete a Higher Degree go on to interesting and rewarding careers in architecture, the wider construction industry, management, higher education, the arts and conservation and many other specialisms to be found in the arts, architecture and the built environment.
