USI Università della Svizzera italiana
Campus Full time September 2017 Switzerland Mendrisio

L'Accademia di Architettura di Mendrisio aims to create the new architect, capable of taking on the developements that have occurred in the profession in an effective way. [+]

Goals and Contents The Master of Science in Architecture offers the opportunity to acquire the most advanced theoretical knowledge and operative skills for the practice of contemporary architectural design. Architectural design is taught through its disciplinary foundations and is closely related with technological innovation, environmental issues, models of territorial management and the themes of restoration and reestablishment of the historical, architectural and environmental heritage. The objective the Master pursues is to train professionals who, on the basis of the acquired awareness and in-depth knowledge of the complexity of current architectural practice, are competent both to carry out the functions of direct architectural design and to coordinate the different specialists involved in professional projects. The study programme consists of a series of theoretical lectures and design studios dedicated to arguments and methods of architectural design in its different forms (housing, services industry, culture, etc.) and scales (from interior design to the architectural structure, all the way up to the urban and territorial plan). The programme draws on two different but correlated teaching approaches. The first consists in theoretical courses pertaining to the methodological, technological and historical knowledge that will enable future architects to explore central themes of contemporary architectural culture critically. The second approach entails, each semester, the choice of a design studio which focuses on a specific project typology, whether architectural or urban. In the years of the Master students are asked to produce one theoretical paper on topics of their own choice with the approval of a teacher.The last... [-]

MSc in Architecture and Environmental Design

University of Westminster - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment
Campus Full time Part time 1 - 2  September 2017 United Kingdom London + 1 more

This interdisciplinary and international course will provide you with skills that can be applied to diverse building typologies and global climatic, environmental and contextual issues. On completion of this course you will have a thorough understanding of the principles and methodology of environmental design and will develop critical thinking skills to challenge established practices. [+]

The global environmental and energy challenge facing current and future generations of architects and building professionals calls for a deeper understanding of the principles of environmental design, and their effective application into architectural practice worldwide. Over the last decades environmental design as a subject area has developed, responding to new research and experimentation, both in academia and in practice. However, buildings claiming to be environmentally conscious do not perform to the expected standards, still heavily contributing to global CO2 emissions and often providing unsatisfactory comfort conditions to occupants. The same can be said for the existing built environment which is largely outdated and underperforming, requiring urgent implementation of effective retrofit strategies. This is due to a lack of comprehensive performance prediction and feedback protocols, which are still not common practice in architectural design. Course content Students on this course will take a fresh critical look at this subject. Here you will gain the knowledge and tools to make informed design decisions based on post-occupancy feedback and performance analysis, towards a new paradigm of environmental architecture, which is environmentally and energy conscious, yet sensitive to the contextual and socio-cultural landscape we live in. You will learn environmental design methods which relate to the various stages of architectural design. You will be able to evaluate existing buildings and design new ones following a combined bioclimatic and building occupant focused approach. In the core design modules you will follow an evidence based design approach where the acquisition of specialised software and analytical tools... [-]

Master of Science Programs in Arts. This two years Master’s programme will provide knowledge on transforming enterprise objectives into a creative user experience and delivering a supportive IT architecture. User experience in ever changing environment Personal devices such as tablets, smartphones, and wearables are replacing desktop computers at the workplace and in the home. Work is often done on the go, in a mobile and ever changing environment – switching from one device to another and moving first from the office to the bus stop, and then home. Since the emergence of the iPhone, user experience design has become central to making our interactions with all kinds of digital devices functional, productive, and inspiring – thus raising expectations when we use business IT systems. IT architectures fuel cross-channel, mobile, and cloud-based solutions. Companies and individuals move their data to the cloud, they use software as a service (SaaS), and they engage both socially and commercially via the Internet. Meanwhile, in the workplace, manufacturers have introduced intelligent robotics to automate production. Rethinking of the way IT solutions are designed and architected The underlying information systems supporting this shift are changing too, introducing new constraints and goals. This requires a new mindset, a rethinking of the way IT solutions are designed and architected to transform enterprise objectives into a creative user experience and to deliver a supportive IT architecture. This masters will equip you with knowledge and skills to tackle these challenges. You will learn user experience design, IT architecture and enterprise... [-]

This advanced Masters programme prepares students to develop applications for these devices equipping them to become highly skilled professionals for the Mobile Industry with the latest skill set in this rapidly expanding and evolving field. Our new programme combines technology, interface design and application development for mobile platforms. Student profiles Bassem Shaker Bassem ShakerI have recently finished the Masters in Mobile Application Design, run by the School of Engineering and Digital Arts at the University of Kent. The programme was a great way for me to learn about developing and designing mobile applications. The programme maintained a fine balance between the practical and the theoretical and it gave me hands on experience in making mobile apps. The course covered all areas of mobile development from human computer interaction, mobile development, web development and even finishing a project for a client as part of the curriculum. Mobile is currently at the center of innovation in computing as more people carry mobile devices from phones, tablets, and smart watches. More and more ubiquitous devices pop up every day around us and I think that having this Masters qualification has equipped me extremely well to participate in this wave of computing. Right now I'm working at a startup in London called Happiness Works, making web and mobile software with the aim of helping companies measure happiness in the work place. Having a Masters Degree under my belt has definitely helped with my prospects in getting the job. [-]
