Architecture Studies

The most popular doctorate is the Doctor of Philosophy or Ph.D. Ph.D.s and other study doctorates prepare graduate student to launch new plans that add to the common knowledge base of the field. Candidates for and holders of Ph.D.s often seek professions as professors and researchers, but many also go on to different roles in the charitable, public, and private sectors.

The process of creating a well-made structure entails a great deal more than just propping up four walls. Knowledge of architecture is needed in order to ensure that buildings meet predetermined desires and legal guidelines.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

PhD Architectural Design (Social Science)

The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering
Campus Full time 3 years October 2018 United Kingdom Nottingham

This programme provides candidates an opportunity to develop an architectural thesis using design as a key component of the methodology exploring an approved topic of their own selection and definition. Whilst the design-based component of the project may be drawn, modeled, filmed, built, etc, candidates will be required to incorporate this research as an integral component of an accompanying written thesis. [+]

Good architecture embraces a holistic approach to design and as a consequence, the environmental strategies embodied within buildings present considerable challenges. They need to reconcile the often conflicting considerations of climate, building function and user expectation, while at the same time being mindful of energy-related carbon emissions.

Projects in environmental design typically reflect the integrated nature of these strategies and explore areas such as natural ventilation, passive heating and cooling, solar protection, fabric thermal storage, daylight and solar strategies and architectural acoustics. These are intrinsically linked to the tectonics of architecture and considerable potential exists to explore the opportunities offered where these overlaps occur, eg the environmental performance of facades, natural ventilation of high rise buildings, etc. Urban design is concerned with the city as a field of analysis and intervention....
