Architecture, Design and the Built Environment Masters in Research (MRes)
Urbanisation, advances in technology and the drive towards sustainable living are all changing our world and transforming businesses. Architecture, design and the built environment disciplines need adaptable, multi-skilled and influential leaders to deliver a coherent and sustainable response to the challenges ahead. This MRes course gives students the opportunity to develop advanced research skills and apply them to an extended research project with either a technical, management or strategic focus.
Depending on your chosen subject area, you will graduate with one of the following qualifications:
