Master of Science in Architecture - Advanced Production

The Master of Science in Architecture with a concentration in Advanced Prodcution focuses on integrating advanced design, computation and manufacturing technologies into workflows for the production of experimental spatial systems, material assemblies and buildings. Coursework for this concentration incorporates emerging design technologies including robotics and automation, Augmented Reality (AR) / Virtual Reality (VR), Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SuAS; aka “Drones”), additive manufacturing (3d-printing), subtractive computer numerical control (CNC) manufacturing processes, parametric modelling and production logistics. Graduates from this program will be prepared to leverage expertise in advanced digital design and production as consultants to or embedded within progressive architectural firms, digital manufacturing operations and advanced technology start-ups. Additionally, this concentration positions graduates to further pursue research through academic faculty positions or as potential PhD candidates.
