The MSc Advanced Architectural Design degree at Robert Gordon University is a 12-month research-led course, designed to equip you to play a lead role in the future design and construction of our buildings, cities and rural communities. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop innovative yet contextually appropriate solutions to challenges of major consequence and complexity. Projects are connected with industrial research and innovation the University is actively working on, meaning you will explore real-world problems in zero-carbon buildings, design for fabrication and assembly, digital and parametric design and future bound design agendas. You will gain a solid understanding on how UAVs and drones will radically change the world as we know it, and you will have the opportunity to work alongside a drone with our fully qualified pilot.
