About

The Master of Studies (MSt) in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment at the University of Cambridge is a transformative part-time master’s course at the University of Cambridge, for global practitioners working in the built environment. 

Overview

The Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment programme offered at the University of Cambridge is structured around emerging trends, opportunities and challenges within the built environment such as: sustainability and resilience; health and well-being; energy efficiency; conservation and heritage; stakeholder engagement, and political and regulatory landscapes.

The learning approach is highly interactive and designed to encourage reflection and debate. Participants are supported by a team of expert tutors and supervisors. The speakers, lecturers and facilitators are leading experts and practitioners from both academia and industry. 

A key feature of the programme is the collaborative learning experience. The programme facilitates shared learning between peers, and networking with the extensive range of contributors, together providing a rich learning environment.

Continuing

To continue to read for the PhD degree following the course, MSt in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment students must achieve an overall total score of at least 70 per cent. Continuation is also subject to Faculty approval of the proposed research proposal, and the availability of an appropriate supervisor.

Programme Structure

Teaching
  • Teaching on the course is delivered though a mix of lectures, workshops and seminars during the residential weeks. 
  • Each residential week comprises an intensive programme of formal lectures (from leading practitioners and university academics), workshops and seminars. 
  • A design project relating to the theme of the week is undertaken in small interdisciplinary teams, which present their design proposals to reviewers at the end of each of the weeks. 
  • Through the design project students apply and implement what they have been taught, as well as benefiting from the knowledge and expertise of their team members; in this, the design projects support experiential learning.
