May 8, 2015MSc in Sustainable Engineering: Architecture and Ecology – a collaboration between The University of Strathclyde Glasgow and the Cosanti FoundationThe University of Strathclyde Glasgow, Scotland, and the Cosanti Foundation in Arizona are very pleased to announce the launch of a new collaborative postgraduate course in Architecture and Ecology. The new course, a Master of Science delivered within the University’s internationally renowned Faculty of Engineering, will provide students with the unique opportunity to study for a Strathclyde Master’s degree while living and working at Arcosanti. Students will spend one semester studying at the city centre campus in Glasgow, completing classes in a range of topics from Sustainability and Urban Theory to Energy Resources and Project Management. They will then travel to Arizona where they will complete a second semester consisting of a class in Arcology, and a practical group project which will work closely with the current research needs of Arcosanti, allowing students to apply knowledge and theory obtained during the course to real life research problems.Dr David Grierson, the Deputy Head of the Department of Architecture at the University, and Director of Internationalism for the Department, is an Arcosanti alumnus and Course Director of the MSc in Architecture and Ecology: “As the world increasingly wakes up to the unsustainable nature of urban sprawl, and its profligate use of vast amounts of energy and resources, the ongoing pursuit of a better ecological alternative at Arcosanti becomes ever more relevant. At the University of Strathclyde Glasgow we are delighted to have formed a partnership with the Cosanti Foundation to offer Masters’ students from around the world an exciting opportunity to critically study the relationship between architecture and ecology, and understand first-hand the theoretical and practical implications of this alternative, while living and working in Scotland and Arizona.” More information on this exciting new collaboration (including information about the University of Strathclyde, MSc course content, and application details) can be found at either Arcosanti’s dedicated information page, or the course page from the University of Strathclyde.
