Course content

Digital technologies are rapidly changing the way buildings and urban spaces are designed, constructed and inhabited. On this course you'll learn the theoretical knowledge and technical skills required to produce innovative blueprints for architecture in the digital era.

The past decade has shown rapidly growing expectations for built spaces with capacity to respond dynamically to changes such as shifts in demographics, new and emerging technology, climate change and ageing populations. These are global challenges and opportunities which demand architects and designers with the ability to creatively shape the way that buildings, landscapes and cities age and adapt over time.

This course uses theoretical and practical study to examine how digital tools and processes can be developed and applied to design built environments with capacity for change. At Sheffield, we produce postgraduates well equipped to become future leaders in this field.
