Description

How will tomorrow’s built environment be designed and constructed? Architectural Computation at The Bartlett School of Architecture equips students with the skills to create generative and responsive forms, through exposure to real programming environments.

About this degree

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.

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.

Applicants with lower standard of degree may be considered if the degree is in a subject appropriate to the programme and the applicant has considerable experience as a professional at a senior level, Please note that a special qualifying examination may be set. Details of this route can be obtained from the Built Environment Faculty Office.

International equivalent qualifications are considered, they can be found by selecting the relevant country from a drop down list in the entry requirements section of each programme page in the UCL Graduate Prospectus.

If your education has not been conducted in the English language, you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency.
