The Department of Architecture of the University of Nicosia cordially invites you to a series of events under the umbrella of the Distance Learning MSc Programme in Computational Design and Digital Fabrication offered in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck, Institute for Experimental Architecture Hochbau in Austria.

The programme was launched in FALL 2019 and aims at exploring the relationship between computational tools and architectural design. The programme curriculum is uniquely structured to combine distance learning education with face to face learning. Within this scope the participants have the opportunity to develop computational design skills and acquire hands-on cutting-edge fabrication experiences, while cultivating analytical and creative thinking on the applications of computation in design.

Each Academic Semester concludes with a fabrication workshop were participants visit the University of Nicosia and University of Innsbruck, respectively to participate in an intensive two-week workshop with a thematic that changes every year depending on the overall programme brief, interests of faculty and visiting specialists. A series of parallel events such as visits, discussions, lectures and presentations frame the workshops to enrich the energetic atmosphere and to maximize educational benefits.
