Do you have an interest in design, the built environment, or urban planning? Do you want to participate and affect future housing? Then you should apply for a doctoral position after your master’s degree.
When you study a doctoral program in Architecture, you will learn to tackle complex situation-based problems. The Graduate school in architecture consists of both theory and practice, and you explore everything from history, to building design, and urban planning. Through an innovative investment in the professional practice of architecture, you get to develop the surrounding society of the future.
By doctorating in architecture, you contribute to strengthening an important link between research, undergraduate education, and the surrounding society we live in. As a doctoral student, you can choose between different exciting specializations, such as design, or learn more about sustainable built environments and urban planning. Read more in the study plan about the different specializations.
The graduate school is organised within the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering.
