The Integrative Technologies & Architectural Design Research M.Sc. Programme is a multidisciplinary, research-oriented, experiment-based programme shaped around contemporary aspects of the built environment.

The goal of the ITECH programme is to prepare a new generation of students from different disciplines for the continuing advancement of technological and computational processes in the development of the built environment through merging the fields of design, engineering, construction, and natural sciences.

By combining an intensive, critical, and analytical approach to computational design simulation and fabrication processes, the ITECH programme focuses on challenging the design space boundaries of current contemporary architectural and engineering practice. It seeks to examine the techniques, methods, and theories of design in engineering, robotics, digital manufacturing, material science, and biology.

The programme is open to students with a recognized Bachelor degree in architecture, architectural science, civil/structural engineering, urban planning, biology or biomimetics, environmental engineering or similar engineering or natural science degrees. All the programme courses are instructed in English.

Applications for enrollment in October 2018 are accepted until February 15th, 2018.
