The MSc programme in Architecture and Design has its focal point in a number of current and future challenges in the field of architecture. With a foundation in subjects, methods, theories and disciplines pertaining to architecture and engineering, the Master programme in Architecture ensures an interdisciplinary competence profile.

The aim is to design architectural projects with a point of departure in Nordic Architecture. Fields of importance include tectonic design as well as sustainable architecture. Tectonic design integrates structural, functional and aesthetic parameters whereas sustainable architecture integrates design, aesthetic, technical, functional energy and comfort parameters in an integrated design process shaping high level low energy architecture.

Furthermore the education has a close connection and collaboration with companies, institutions etc., which among other things gives the student the opportunity to collaborate with and create close connections to these. This is beneficial for the project work as well as for future carreer opportunities.
