The individual master’s degree design thesis is viewed as a bridge into professional practice. Students create their own strategies and put all the knowledge from previous semesters into a comprehensive design project in a location and site of their choice.
In their work students are guided by thesis supervisor, who they meet with on regular basis throughout the semester and offered additional help form visiting professors, who provide additional input and perspective on their work. Students are encouraged to work in the studio atmosphere during the thesis term, having access to a global database of information regarding environmental, social, design and economic topics.
Degree project presentations consist of an oral presentation, printed presentation posters and thesis book publication.
When students have completed all the degree requirements and 120 hec including the Design Thesis, they are entitled to apply for a degree certificate for a Master of Science in Sustainable Urban Design.
