London South Bank University

Course Introduction

The MSc Digital Architecture and Robotic Construction focuses on digital design methods and construction technologies in architecture, engineering and design. It provides a scientific and practical foundation and gives an overview of latest developments in advanced modelling, computational design and robotic construction. Digital technologies have altered the field of architecture and the architectural profession significantly, from design to production. In this context, the course combines the professional quality of an architectural qualification with the theory and practice behind the latest digital developments in the field. Students use computer'aided methods for design and study the construction and fabrication process in'depth. As part of the School of the Built Environment and Architecture, students work in a transdisciplinary environment where knowledge is shared. Students are able to exploit LSBU's extensive industry connections during the course and their dissertation is closely linked to practice. Students are encouraged to work together with partners; an engineering company or another academic School within LSBU.
