The MMTD provides expertise in theories, cases, techniques, tools and design projections of mass timber construction and the interrelated fields of architecture, structural design, assembly systems, material science and thermodynamics.
The MMTD offers a unique online experience based on advanced design research methodologies, a philosophy of learning by doing, and a community of experts in mass timber design that serve as faculty and lecturers
In contrast to the traditional Online programs, the Master in Mass Timber Design – a 60 ECTS accredited Master degree consisting in three 15 ECTS postgraduate programs- offers a real-class “virtual” environment, based on a continuous, interactive and collaborative learning process.
The environmental challenges of this century demand a new generation of buildings made from renewable, reusable, and carbon-storing materials; timber is uniquely positioned to address this challenge.
Recent technological developments enable tall building structures made with prefabricated and highly industrialized mass timber elements. Educating a new generation of architects, engineers, and designers in ecological design and building practices is therefore of critical importance for contemporary society, and promotes the expertise necessary to make the most of new technical opportunities.
