What is the Master of Architecture all about?
This Ghent master's programme focusing on 'Architecture: Resilient and Sustainable Strategies' explores architecture from a research-by-design and design-by-research perspective. Students are educated and trained in a multicultural andinternational context. The programme combines an academic approach with a creative-experimental approach. It is characterised by a fully-integrated design methodology, providing students with solid skills in the contemporary discipline of architectural design and research.
The Master of Architecture is organised at both of the faculty's campuses in Brussels and Ghent, though each campus offers a different orientation:
Sint-Lucas Ghent Campus - Architecture: Resilient and Sustainable Strategies
Sint-Lucas Brussels Campus - Architecture: Urban Projects, Urban Cultures
The programme consists out of a minimum of four semesters.
The Faculty of Architecture takes its international dimension as the basis for its own quality assessment. It positions itself squarely within the international field of qualitative academic education. The faculty's international activities are extensive and diversified: student mobility and staff exchange on a European and intercontinental level, internationally oriented programmes for incoming students, international workshops and competitions, international research projects, international internships, development cooperation, etc.
The faculty continues to build on its tradition of academic integration of teaching and research to maintain and enhance its standard of quality and international standing.
The faculty works hard to consolidate and enrich its network of cooperative associations with professionals and universities all over the world and strives to leverage this international network for students' benefit. Its international dimension is a strong catalyst for creativity and an added value to students' future professional career.
In 2017-2018 the faculty started a New York hub for Research and Practice in Architecture. Based on four programmes, students, researchers, faculty staff and alumni can join on-site traineeship and internship programmes, conduct on-site research, join local academic or professional events or contribute to the on site design studios. The NY hub is actively linked to the master's dissertation design studios and electives in this programme.
