MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE II DEGREE
In addition to the existing curriculum of Advanced Design Studio work that culminates in a design-research Thesis project, the Criticism, History and Theory concentration offers an intensive one-year immersion in the criticism, history and theory of architecture. Emphasis is placed on approaches to architectural analysis and history, the role and contemporary relevance of theory, and the relations between theory and design. Seminars will offer students preparation for careers in journalism, teaching, and eventual doctoral studies, with a broad understanding of the cultural conditions of architectural production and a concentration on excellence in writing. Analysis studios provide a deep insight into the formal and programmatic diversity of historical and contemporary architecture, the process of design, and potential avenues for new approaches towards theory and practice. A required emphasis in Urbanism or Technologies of Representation allows for deeper investigation into specific areas of historical or contemporary architectural theory.
MASTER OF ENGINEERING DEGREE
M.E. degrees in Chemical, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering prepare graduates for entry into the engineering profession at an advanced level or for further graduate study. It affords diversification and versatility by requiring a major—offered in the School of Engineering, and a minor in a different field of engineering or science.
