Design studio work

Year one and two

Architecture project work year one

Studio-based learning is at the heart of the student experience on our MEng, BEng Architecture and MEng, BEng Architectural Engineering courses. Open-ended and creative building design projects are used to demonstrate and develop the knowledge you gain in other modules which include elements of architecture, building physics and structural engineering.

The Architecture and Architectural Engineering courses are centred in a new studio space designed to host lectures, tutorials and personal study. In the studio environment, you will benefit from learning from your peers, the academic teaching team and design tutors from practice.

In years one and two, the design studios are the modules through which you develop your learning in design. Making use of open-ended initial briefs, you’ll gain a critical understanding of how science, technology, the arts and society are brought together through creative building design projects.
