Course Introduction

The Architecture and Digital Theory MRes explores digital theory, history, and cultures, in all their guises: from design and fabrication, to many related fields and disciplines that are being affected and transformed by the new digital paradigm. Students on this programme gain an advanced understanding of the history, theory and criticism of computational design and fabrication. The programme is suitable for candidates considering a career in the design professions, with a particular theoretical or critical interest in digital design and fabrication, including architecture graduates holding a BSc or MArch or equivalent overseas qualifications. It is also suited to professionals specialising in digital theory and with careers in academia, museums, publishing, digital media, video game design, software development, geographic information systems, and construction industry consultants. The Bartlett School of Architecture is recognised as one of the world's leading schools of architecture and graduates from our Master's programmes are highly sought after. Students will take this course in flexible study mode also.
