Architecture (Architecture & Design) (Aalborg)
Do you dream about working with architectural concept development, project development and design of buildings?
The Msc programme in Architecture at Aalborg University, Denmark, has its focal point in a number of current and future challenges in the field of architecture. With a foundation in subjects, methods, theories and disciplines pertaining to architecture and engineering, the master programme in Architecture ensures an interdisciplinary competence profile.
The aim is to design architectural projects with a point of departure in Nordic Architecture. Fields of importance in this regard include tectonic design as well as sustainable architecture. Tectonic design integrates structural, functional and aesthetic parameters whereas sustainable architecture integrates design, aesthetic, technical, functional energy and comfort parameters in an integrated design process shaping high level low energy architecture.
It takes two years to attain a master degree in Architecture, and during this time you will meet a wide range of teachers who will present you with new knowledge in key areas. The educational programme is internationally oriented, and attracts Danish as well as international students. Furthermore the educational programme offers the opportunity of an internship or/and an external study as well as study trips inside and outside Denmark during the semester.

The programme of Architecture has given me valuable experience working in larger and smaller groups and presenting ideas and projects for others.
I have learned to work with integrated design – to combine functional, aesthetic and technical aspects, so they meld together into a whole. These qualities are important for the job as project developer and engineering manager, which requires good leadership, the ability to work in a team and multidisciplinary qualifications.
