The aim of the module is to use the latest architectural design and engineering research and/or professional practice to raise students’ knowledge and development level. Furthermore, the module must document the use of research based or practice based knowledge. This means to familiarize the students with basic research, practice or development methods and theory, as well as enable them to acquire specific knowledge within one of the following chosen fields:
PBL-pedagogically, the module focus on strengthening problem formulation and process analysis based on insights from external collaboration and/or practice-oriented studies.
The project-oriented study in an external organization must have a scope that correspond the ECTS load.
Students who complete the module:
Must have scientific, practical or conceptual knowledge of relevance to the chosen field related to architectural design and engineering.
Must have knowledge of the relevant scientific literature/theory or/and methodologies used within the chosen field related to architectural design and engineering.
Must be able to formulate a given scientific or practice-based problem in a clear and consistent way.
Must have the ability to select research- or practice based knowledge in the chosen field related to architectural design and engineering.
Must be able to select and apply an appropriate research or praxis-oriented method for the chosen problem area to be examined within the given timeframe or time available.
Must be able to engage with- and critically evaluate professional environments and further develop their interdisciplinary approach in the chosen field.
Can independently seek out, choose and critically reflect on relevant scientific literature/theoretical, methodological and/or empirical knowledge, and apply to a given problem/project of their choice.
Can handle the integration of relevant research knowledge into a practical project or a theoretical project related to architectural design-engineering.
Can communicate and transfer process and results in a clear and systematic way.
Can independently work in relevant interdisciplinary environments, participate in collaborative teams, and take professional responsibility in solving complex design related tasks in the chosen field.
