Call for Applications for the MSc Computational Design and Digital Fabrication (Distance Learning) │Fall 2023

For Fall 2023 semester, the Department of Architecture at the University of Nicosia in collaboration with the Institute of Experimental Architecture Hochbau at the University of Innsbruck announce the opening for admission to the Msc programme in Computational Design and Digital Fabrication.

The programme explores the relationship between computational tools and architectural design, in an effort to attain a new insight into the relationship between design intent and built form. Prospective participants will have the opportunity to develop computational design skills and acquire hands on cutting-edge fabrication experiences, while cultivating analytical and creative thinking on the applications of computation in design. The programme offers a very promising employment outlook while encouraging participants to become part of the global community of applied computational research and digital fabrication, a growing industry increasingly important for the production of the built environment.
