M.ARCH program with coding joint degree or inclination?

Martini26

I graduated from University of Michigan's undergraduate B.S. Architecture program and am looking to get a masters. I am searching for a program (either in the states or abroad) that offers something in coding too, either a program or path, since I see the future of architecture is really intertwined in digital technology and computer science would be of great use.

Anyone have any school or program suggestions?

"I see the future of architecture is really intertwined in digital technology and computer science would be of great use". That makes me laugh, apparently you have no idea what architects do in real practice. Anyway, regarding your question, architecture education is an art degree, even if you find a niche program teaching computational design, it will mostly be 3d software with grasshopper and dynamo or that nature. You will not learn computer science and coding in an architecture degree. If you find one, show me. I mean In depth coding, a single course means nothing. Even I had a python coding class in my Barch study, god knows why.

However, having a computer science degree/capability is great though. Why? Because you will realize architecture sucks and you can make a lot more money doing programming. If I were you, I would do Barch and Master in computer science. You have all you need from arch school during that Barch education. Master in CS is just in case architecture field does not pan out. Jump to IT field.

Python’s great, it helps writing your own code on grasshopper with geometry or rationalization.

A regular masters along with a diploma in such software will do you good, if you are planning to focus on that niche group.
