The Faculty of Architecture 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. 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.
