Objectives:
Within an integrated modular structure of taught components, group and individual projects, the MA in Computer Imaging in Architecture offers prospective students the opportunity to: -Better understand the principles of three dimensional computer modelling and digital representation as applied to architectural design. -Develop a theoretical understanding of the implications of this technology in architecture and in a wider cultural context. -Enhance their ability as designers.
Entry Requirements:
Applicants require a good first degree in architecture or a related discipline. Applicants with qualifications in subject areas contingent upon or cognate with the course will be considered on merit but will be expected to show a committed interest in architectural design. Most candidates will be required to attend an interview, and will be invited to bring a portfolio of work demonstrating their prior experience and interests. Overseas candidates may submit a portfolio or samples of their project work in a digital format for inspection.

MA Computer Imaging in Architecture
Course Description:
Introduction
Computer technology now has an important role to play in many branches of creative design practice. The University of Westminster offers a design led, project based, Masters course that affords an opportunity to explore the potential of these technologies as the basis for new design methodologies. By directly addressing computer aided design; image manipulation; animation and multimedia presentation techniques, the course aims to further the education of professionals who will find employment principally in architectural offices, but also in other applied arts utilising digital graphics.

Intended primarily for post-degree and diploma students in architecture, the course places an emphasis on exploiting the potential of CAD, animation and graphics applications to produce innovative design solutions. Through a series of project based programmes, the course centres on developing the creative abilities of the students in each of these areas. An understanding of this work in a wider cultural context is also promoted and students are encouraged to engage in research that explores relevant architectural and critical theory.

Within an integrated modular structure of taught components, group and individual projects, the MA in Computer Imaging in Architecture offers prospective students the opportunity to:
-Better understand the principles of three dimensional computer modelling and digital representation as applied to architectural design.
-Develop a theoretical understanding of the implications of this technology in architecture and in a wider cultural context.
-Enhance their ability as designers.

Course Content
The course starts in September and runs for 12 months full-time. Workshops and seminars are predominantly conducted in the late afternoon or evening, but both full-time and part-time students are expected to devote a substantial number of hours each week to study and project work. Throughout the course, project based workshops using CAD, animation and graphics applications are used to introduce new design concepts and strategies. In the first semester initial steps are taken towards the development of an individual project theme. In parallel, a series of written papers and seminars provide a theoretical grounding for the design work. In the second semester, students are required to research specific proposals and personal as part of a thesis project.
This is primarily a project-based course and innovation by individual students is encouraged in the context of the rapidly changing nature of computer technology. The course philosophy encourages exploratory initiatives and research that will allow new technologies to be exploited creatively.
