The Master of Science in Architecture, Health and Design (M.S.AHD) program is a two-semester, 30-credit, post-professional master's degree. We welcome applications from graduates with a background in planning, urban design, architecture and design, including healthcare design, interior design, industrial design, product design, etc., as well as those with interest and expertise in design technologies (simulation, visualization, robotic interactions, and fabrication, etc.), computational design, and new materials.
Our coordinated curriculum of design studios, labs, and core and elective courses is threaded with a renovated research-oriented approach to health and design. You'll explore methodologies that include strategic and systemic design, healthcare facilities design, prototyping at the scale of product and industrial design, the performative qualities of spaces, and the exploration of material innovations. A final studio project in the summer term will synthesize professional, historical, theoretical, social, and material knowledge, and explore a multidisciplinary topic at the intersection of design, technology and the medical/healthcare fields.More
Ultimately, a new form of speculative interdisciplinary design practice may arise from the cross-pollination of various professionals and industry partners and a range of contributors from health sciences and other experts.
