The MPhil/PhD Architectural Design and the MPhil/PhD Architectural History and Theory programmes are aimed at architectural designers and historians and theorists of architecture respectively. In practce, there is considerable overlap and engagement between the two programmes, which consist of a dynamic group of around 90 innovative doctoral students.
Architectural Space and Computation comes under the auspices of the Space Syntax Laboratory. With its empirical base, it is aimed at researchers seeking to advance knowledge by studying the relations between spatial patterns and social outcomes, and between architectural design knowledge and computation.
The fourth programme is a new MPhil/PhD in Architecture and Digital Theory.
