University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Masters, Master of Science in Architecture - Digital Technologies

As architecture integrates advanced technologies from the aerospace, automotive, and shipbuilding industries, it has altered both the way buildings are conceived and manufactured. Computer-aided design/manufacturing technologies have forced architects to reconsider their role in response to an influx of complex performance requirements, changing contractual relationships, and multidisciplinary collaborations.

The Master of Science in Architecture concentration in Digital Technologies (MS_DT) not only allows for hands-on direct engagement with technology but challenges students to explore different design theories and methodologies poised to have disruptive effects on future work in the field.
The MS_DT concentration focuses on cutting-edge research in advanced fabrication techniques and digital design techniques. Project-based research led by innovative faculty in the college’s world class Digital Fabrication Lab provides a powerful platform for motivated students to explore novel construction approaches of designed objects at various scales.
