Overview

The programme in Computational Design and Digital Fabrication (Distance Learning) at the University of Nicosia explores the relationship between computational tools and architectural design, in an effort to attain a new insight into the relationship between design intent and built form. Prospective participants will 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. 

Furthermore, the programme aims at promoting international exchange of research knowledge, through the connection to the University of Innsbruck and its Robotic Lab (REXLAB) at the Institute for Experimental Architecture. This encourages participants to become part of the global community of computational research in digital fabrication, a growing industry increasingly important for the production of the built environment.

Upon successful completion of this program, the students should be able to:

  • Acquire knowledge and expertise in computational design and digital fabrication in relation to architecture and design.
  • Interpret and criticize specific design methodologies, current applications and emerging advances in the field of computational design and digital fabrication.
  • Asses the effect of these methodologies and applications in the production of the built environment.
  • Conduct research leading to new knowledge.
  • Propose original applications of analysis and research knowledge in the field of computational design and digital fabrication through design projects.
