The graduate program, distinguished for its project-based learning and research, recently added concentrations and certificates in High-Performance Buildings and Conservation and Stewardship to its existing curricular focuses in Urban Design and Sustainability. These research specialties are contributing to more options for UT graduate architecture students.
Applications for admission are due February 1.
Students entering the program in 2013 will enjoy enriched curricular offerings and up to six new faculty with whom to study. Moreover, the college will welcome its first Barber McMurry Visiting Professor, a world-class practitioner who will teach graduate-level studios and seminars; as well as its Governor’s Chair, a leading expert with scholarly and research focuses in urban design and new and emerging clean energy practices. The Governor’s Chair is a joint appointment between UT and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).
Our graduate program helps demonstrate the energy and creativity of a cadre of committed faculty, and unique opportunities for our students. We are pursuing multi-disciplinary learning that re-invents conventional design/build operations and explores innovative use of traditional materials and sustainable methods in the built environment.
