Master of Engineering in Design

Master of Design

at the NCUT College of Architecture and Art

 

Introduction

We offer two 2-year graduate programs in Design at NCUT: Master of Design, and Master of Engineering in Design. Both of the majors share the same purpose of satisfying students’ personal needs of creative development.

We place emphasis on individual masters research project which allows student to develop independent thinking and to explore preferred discipline of design.

Main research fields of our department are as follows: visual communication, environmental design, urban planning, landscape architecture, product design, fashion design, and animation.

Our program focuses on studio-based courses, where students work on real-world projects improving analytical thinking, creativity and problem-solving abilities.

 

 

Program objectives

Our goal is to support students on their individual paths of artistic growth by sharing knowledge and creating an engaging environment to encourage inspirations and enhance creativity. After completing our program, students obtain advanced design skills and educational background essential for a successful future design careers.

 

 

Program plan

The first year expands students understanding of modern design within the context of recent technological advances, new materials, and contemporary architecture and urban design problems. Besides academic lectures, the program offers intensive studio-based training which aims in mastering practical skills of design and boosting critical thinking.

During the second year students are working independently on their graduation projects. After choosing a research subject, a student is assigned a supervisor who provides guidance and advice throughout the research process. To earn a Master’s degree student has to conduct a research, write thesis and present her/his findings during master’s defense.

 

 

Courses characteristics

We offer a variety of courses to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the design process. Studio-based training is the significant part of our program. Students are carrying out independent and teamwork projects, which allows them to master technical design skills and to enhance communication skills. They learn how to express the design intent effectively, but also how to give a constructive feedback. Working on projects boosts critical thinking and students gain abilities of how to address design problems and come up with innovative solutions.

Our lectures equip students with the knowledge critical to the 21st century designers and researchers by introducing new technologies and materials in design.

 

 

Learning environment

We want to create a thriving and supportive learning culture in an engaging environment where students feel connected to teachers, staff and other students. Students will have an opportunity not only to learn, but be part of a positive community where they can collaboratively feel valued and have a constant opportunity to grow. We organize many design related activities, during which international students cooperate with Chinese colleagues resulting in improved cross-cultural communication skills. We also provide students with opportunities to use the advanced laboratory equipment including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), 3D scanners, 3D printers, and laser engraving machine to boost creativity and technical skills.
