Master of Science Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences

The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU Delft offers a dynamic Master’s programme very much informed by the unique circumstances of the Netherlands, where the high population density has strongly influenced thinking about how to work creatively with space. The Faculty has an outstanding reputation and attracts students from all over the world. The programme is especially strong in such areas as design, research, management, technology and research-by-design.

Creating an inspiring and sustainable living environment

The field of architecture used to be fairly straightforward – it was about the design of buildings. But these days, the field is far more complicated. Where in the past the emphasis was primarily on expanding the supply, far more attention is now directed to maintaining, adapting and replacing existing buildings and neighbourhoods. Construction as a field has therefore become more complex and specialised. That in turn increases the demand for architectural engineers with management skills – engineers who are capable of skilfully directing both the technical and logistical components of a construction project at every phase along the way from design to management of the completed structure.

What you will learn

The Master's Programme in Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences meets the above demands. In the educational programme, it addresses a range of issues of vital interest to society, such as:

  • the design and quality of the built environment
  • the growing demand in the residential sector
  • urbanisation processes
  • the management of building supply
  • infrastructure and accessibility of public facilities
  • sustainable construction
  • the development of new building materials and structures
