The Adaptive Architecture and Computation MRes offers a self-directed route which concentrates on research skills, for those intending to take a doctoral degree or those looking to take their existing architecture and computating experience to a higher level. The programme can be taken alone or as the first year of the EngD VEIV. What and how will I learn? On completion of the programme, students will be able to use computational techniques in architecture, understand and predict the consequences of their design actions through computational processes, integrate their predictions into the design process, and carry out self-sufficient research into new methods and processes. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of taught courses (30 credits), research skills courses (30 credits) and research projects (120 credits). Core Modules Computational Analysis Computational Synthesis Research Skills (A) Research Skills (B) Computational Research Project Options STANDALONE MRES STUDENTS TAKE: Extended Personal Research Project FIRST YEAR ENGD VEIV STUDENTS TAKE: Interdisciplinary Group Project Personal Research Project DissertationReport Students complete project reports for the research projects listed above. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops and seminars as well as individual and collaborative projects. Time is dedicated to studio sessions with experienced tutors who have a track record of research into architecture and computation. Assessment is through unseen examination, 3000 word term paper and project reports. Further details available on subject website: http:www.aac.bartlett.ucl.ac.ukmres Why should I study this degree at UCL? The Bartlett is the UK's largest multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, bringing together dozens of scientific and professional specialisms required to research, understand, design, construct and operate the buildings and urban environments of the future. Located in London, it is at the heart of the world's largest cluster of creative architects and engineering firms and has all the resources of a world city to hand. The Adaptive Architecture and Computation programme at UCL offers a unique perspective on the application of technology to the built environment. The course team, drawn from the world-leading SPACE research group, comprises both architects and experts in artificial intelligence. Your career After completing the course, many graduates go on to join leading architectural and engineering practices, either directly with design teams or with specialist modelling groups. In the past three years, graduates have joined Foster and Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects, KPF Associates, Aedas, Arup and Mott MacDonald. Alumni have also joined (or founded) cutting edge emerging digital design practices such as United Visual Artists or Moving Brands, and moved into academic research. Entry requirements The normal minimum qualifications are a second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Some basic computing experience is expected. A second acceptable qualification is corporate membership of one of the following UK professional institutions: the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). A third acceptable qualification is a degree of lower than second-class Honours standard, or an equivalent overseas qualification, in a subject appropriate to the programme, plus extensive background and experience in the field. The latter implies considerable experience as a professional at a senior level. For applicants without a first degree or full professional membership, but with relevant and substantial w
