Masterutbildning i arkitektur
The world of today is growing more globally interlinked and connected, thus offering new challenges for architecture. These challenges concern everything from the densification of cities and sustainability, to threats related to extreme events and the environment. Lund University, located in the dynamic Copenhagen-Malmö region, is well known for its competence and knowledge, and offers superb resources for studying these matters in a broader context. The programme combines best practice with advanced research, thus educating students to become highly skilled professionals who are competitive at an international level.
Teaching contains both theoretical and hands-on projects aiming to find future-focused solutions to real-world issues. The programme features international collaboration, as well as locally active professionals. The process of working/learning consists of a mixture of workshops, crits, tutorials with invited guests (both international and local) and longer projects that will be exhibited to a public audience.
The objectives of the Master's programme in Architecture are:
- to offer a broad education in architecture with possible specialisation within two main fields; Advanced Architectural Design and Spatial Experiment (Architecture and Digital Process)
- to provide students with the skills to manifest an internationally recognised capacity to act within a challenging but uncertain future related to globalization and changing technology.
The Master's programme in Architecture is divided into two different specialisations; Advanced Architectural Design and Spatial Experiment, each leading to a MSc in Architecture.
For each specialisation, the first two semesters will constitute a common platform within the focus area. In the third semester, the students partake in a different studio where they are given the opportunity to broaden and/or further specialize their design skills. A number of courses from the five-year Swedish Architect programme included as elective within each specialization. Semester four of the Master's programme in Architecture is devoted to a Degree Project worth 30 credits which must be executed within the chosen specialization.
Study trips, inventories, surveying, environmental studies etc. are integrated into the programme. These trips are optional, and all students participate at their own expense. Students who cannot participate will be given alternative assignments in Lund. Each specialisation has its own line of study trips and destinations may vary from year to year. Previous destinations include Great Britain, The Netherlands, Germany, USA (NASA), Japan and Marocco.
Please note: Field trips may be subject to cancellation/alteration due to unforeseeable circumstances, such as natural disasters and/or visa denial.
After graduating from the programme you will have the necessary skills to practice as an architect on a global market. You will be up-to-date regarding theory, practice and tools at an advanced level. Your competence will enable you to engage professionally on both private and public level. During the course of your studies, you will have the opportunity to meet practitioners from the local and regional scene, both to present your work in reviews and exhibitions, and get to know their work and culture through lectures and study visits. Our alumni often go on to jobs and internships both in the region, particularly Copenhagen, Malmö and Stockholm, and internationally. The future-focused nature of the programme will make you especially attractive on the market, by being an architect capable of finding innovative ways of approaching the projects of tomorrow.
