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. You'll 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, you'll work in a transdisciplinary environment where knowledge is shared. Architecture students are also able to work in our Architecture Design Studio, a dedicated studio space with views across the London landscape. You'll be able to exploit LSBU's extensive industry connections during the course and your dissertation will be closely linked to practice. You'll be encouraged to work together with partners; an engineering company or another academic School within LSBU. The Master's program opens up various possibilities for professional development. You could go on to work in the area of architecture, building construction, engineering, and interior or product design. You could also work as a specialist or consultant in the field of computational design and robotic construction. The course could also lead on to a PhD or employment in engineering research.
