M. Arch Programs w/ Digital Fabrication & Computational Design


Hey all, 

I am looking to apply to programs with a focus on the digital side of design - Digital Fabrication and Computational Design. It appears that GSAPP, UPenn, and MIT are among the top school with this focus - is there any other program you'd all recommend looking into?

Also- Any thoughts about the M. Arch program at Carnegie Mellon?

The one that isn't flooded.

There are couple but the schools you said along with Pratt , Sci Arc & Michigan. 

A lot of the teachers do float around between these fabrication / parametric schools so you might see familiar names.

Maybe try posting in 'Academia'. That way people not interested in your prepubescent noodling wouldn't have to wade through it here.

Poke around The Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture. You might find some names and/or work associated with schools that interests you.

This is perfect. Thank you!


Search these. These are what I'm looking into as I'm also interested in getting into the same degree. They're all outside of the US, cheaper options (excluding London) and have reputable faculty and curriculum as well. 

Switzerland: ETH Zurich DFAB

Spain: ETSAV / CODA Parametric Design in Architecture

France: Design By Data (it's in Paris)

Germany: M-CDC (University of Applied Sciences in Detmold, Germany)

Germany: ICD ITECH

London: Architectural Computation at the Bartlett (UCL)

London: EmTech, DRL or Design & Make at the AA
