The Master of Architecture (by Research) programme is a systematic attempt to obtain answers to research questions about events and phenomena in built environment and their application to building design.
The student is expected to understand research methodology. The research process will include literature reviews, project reviews, surveys, activity analysis, and their critique. With specific regard to the research project proposed, a student will explore socio-economic features, government policies and their effects, the geographical and climatic conditions of the site, building construction techniques and their adaptations, and conduct various case studies. The research will culminate in a thesis indicating in detail the extent that its findings can be practically applied or adapted to a live project. At the end of the research process the student is required to apply the findings in an appropriate architectural design project, documenting the design process, and giving design details.
Students may gain specialization by carrying out research in their chosen subjects from within the following architectural fields:
Housing projects (urban and rural)
(The projects may have emphasis on Architectural Conservation, Urban and Environmental Issues)
