The Master of Architecture (Coursework) programme at Taylor's University is equivalent to Part 2 of the Board of Architects Malaysia or Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM) Professional Examination, and is a full-time professional Master's programme that centres on the advanced study of architecture. 


The Master of Architecture (Coursework) programme at Taylor's University takes on an integrated approach to learning architecture and adopts the teaching philosophy of 'Design as Research'. Key research areas include Community and Place, Urban Regeneration and Tropical Architecture. 

Students undertake a range of specialist and research-based studio projects supported by knowledge and application of technology and environment, culture context, research and professional practice to forge the position of "Sustaining Humanity".
