Architectural research has been conducted at Chalmers since the 1960s. Today, research includes design and practice based methods such as projective research, often combined in transdisciplinary modes with methods adapted from science, social sciences, humanities and fine arts.
Chalmers Architecture leads and takes part in two strong national research environments Architecture in the Making and Architecture in Effect. These environments are independent of, but partly linked to the dividsions of the department.
The department consists of three divisions for research and education:
Public defence of doctoral thesis
Coming licentiate seminars
