Course Information

The MSc Advanced Architectural Design degree at Robert Gordon University is a 12-month research-led course, designed to equip you to play a lead role in the future design and construction of our buildings, cities and rural communities. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop innovative yet contextually appropriate solutions to challenges of major consequence and complexity.
