Program description

Timber Technology MSc (Full-time)

Our Timber Technology MSc will allow you to develop your skills as a timber design professional within a rapidly expanding sustainable agenda for the built environment.

You'll be taught at our internationally renowned art, architecture and design school, The Cass, offering you the unique opportunity to study timber technology in central London. Our exceptional location means you'll be close to internationally significant architects, timber engineers, timber building contractors and engineered timber suppliers, many of which have headquarters in the City.

You will graduate with a holistic understanding of wood, from its micro to its macro scale properties, giving you the confidence and skills to design with dimensional and engineered timber across multiple building scales.

Graduates of timber technology related degrees are highly sought-after for their combination of specialist design skills, understanding of characteristic properties of timber, and knowledge of industrial processing of timber buildings as key contributors to a net zero-carbon economy.

As well as developing a vast range of expertise in timber technology, you will also learn about adjacent disciplines including sustainable forestry practice and the timber construction industry. This will help you ensure that your own technical architectural designs align with the latest construction practices and efficiencies associated with design for manufacture and assembly.

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • an honours degree (2:2 or above) in Architecture, Architectural Technology, Civil Engineering or a related field (eg Product Design, Materials and Design).

You will be required to present a physical or digital portfolio of prior design work and a statement of intent demonstrating ambition for your studies and a future career in the field of architectural design and/or contemporary construction practices with timber.
