New Postgraduate Degrees at The Bartlett

28 April 2016

The Bartlett is pleased to announce six new Postgraduate courses and a new joint Undergraduate programme.

new degrees

MEng Engineering & Architectural Design - based within the School of Architecture and shared with BSEER and the Faculty of Engineering

This new 4 year integrated undergraduate master's in Engineering and Architectural Design challenges students to develop a critical, independent, creative, and technically rigorous approach to architectural, environmental and structural design and engineering in buildings.

Hosted at The Bartlett School of Architecture, the programme unites three of the university’s most successful departments in a pioneering academic partnership comprising: The Bartlett School of Architecture, the Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering (IEDE), and the department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE). Students graduating from the programme will be well-placed to deliver innovative design with progressive performance within a collaborative and complex industry.

Duration: 4 years

Applications open October 2016 for September 2017 start

MA Situated Practice - School of Architecture

The MA Situated Practice is a pioneering master's programme enabling students to create work that is situated physically and engages with contemporary social, cultural and political conditions. Students will undertake practice-led research training in the principles and skills of situated practice in relation to conceptual spatial theories in art, architecture, performativity, urbanism and writing. Outcomes will combine media - comprising site-specific and performative installation, designs and events - that engage with their contexts and particular publics.

Duration: 15 months

Applications open October 2016 for September 2017 start

MArch Design for Performance & Interaction - School of Architecture

The course teaches students how to place their design skills in the context of 3D and 4D representation, including collaboration in real-time simulation, networked media spaces, and design for sensory and interactive environments. Students will gain a working knowledge of sound systems, lighting systems, interactive computation and electronics, behaviour of individuals and crowds, the equipment and software that is used to track this behaviour and the software that simulates this in both relaxed and emergency conditions. 

Duration: 15 months

Applications open October 2016 for September 2017 start

MArch Design for Manufacture - School of Architecture

The new Design for Manufacture programme aims to complement the established fields of architecture, engineering and construction with a new field of experts capable of exploiting the opportunities afforded by new technologies and methods. The programme will teach students how to place their design skills in the context of making components and assemblies for the construction industry. Students will work collaboratively in the design and prototyping of elements such as novel entry assemblies, furniture systems, stairs, structures and enclosures, set within the context of contemporary challenges such as sustainability, production, cost, and assembly. 

Duration: 15 months

Applications open October 2016 for September 2017 start

MSc Health, Wellbeing and Sustainable Buildings, UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering, part of BSEER

This innovative master's degree, primarily delivered within the Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering, which sits within The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources, aims to provide its students with the knowledge, critical understanding and skills needed to address health, wellbeing and human performance for the design/assessment/operation of new-build, retrofit and existing buildings (residential and non-domestic), within the broader context of sustainability at the urban and global scales. The curriculum is underpinned by multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches, systems thinking and integrated design principles. 

Duration: 12 months

Applications open October 2016 for September 2017 start

MSc in Global Prosperity, Institute for Global Prosperity

The Institute for Global Prosperity MSc in Global Prosperity is an intensive one-year graduate degree – with flexible options built in – that offers a distinctive approach to developing pathways to global prosperity. It is global in its outlook and implementation. It emphasises knowledge sharing, and builds on successes to problems already achieved in different locales around the world. Students learn from these successes, but also from each other. It is multidisciplinary, transcending silos in disciplinary thinking to leverage more innovative and effective solutions to global challenges.
