UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

This programme bridges the complex network that is the construction industry, and trains a new breed of experts to exploit opportunities afforded by new and emerging manufacturing technologies. Graduates can expect to lead the paradigm shift that is taking place in building design and procurement. This programme is built around design, fabrication and testing. Students will learn to locate their work in the historical and theoretical context of design for manufacture, will select from a range of analogue and digital skills that they wish to develop and will progress to undertaking advanced design, research and fabrication projects with support from leading academics and professionals.

The programme will be primarily located at the new UCL Here East facility in London's Olympic Park, with a design studio focus and outstanding CNC fabrication and robotics facilities. It will also benefit from a base on the UCL main campus in Bloomsbury and benefit from The Bartlett's unparalleled industry network and London location. Graduates will be well placed to take leading roles in industry or academia, exploiting emerging technologies and approaches to change the nature of design and construction. The programme has been developed in liaison with industry partners including Arup, Foster and Partners, Laing O'Rouke and Price and Myers, who all have a longstanding relationship with The Bartlett. Graduates are likely to progress to further study and teaching, or roles in design and the built environment with some of the world's leading architecture, engineering and construction companies.
