An invitation for designers to learn more advanced design tools, digital manufacturing and design processes applied to architecture and construction projects.
The Advanced Master “Design by Data” program in Computation Design & Robotics for Architecture and Construction was launched in 2016 and is one of the latest programs in innovative professional education at Ecole des Ponts ParisTech. The program was designed to meet the increasing need for the professional sectors of architecture and engineering to combine architectural skills with creative engineering. Design by Data trains professionals to master advanced design tools (coding, algorithmic approach, artificial intelligence) as well as digital manufacturing and design processes (robotics, 3D printing, electronics and mechatronics) and apply them to architectural and construction projects.
About the Program
Attendees develop their knowledge in digital culture, advanced mathematics and computational strategies, building on a skill set of digital tools and innovative structural design as well as modelling and managing complex geometries. In addition to the core curriculum, students are also trained in parametric design and participate in two week-long seminars (the first on imaging and AI, the second on an agent-based design approach) as well as a Research Studio once per month in which they need to define and develop their Research Project. Attendees benefit from year-long access to a rich ecosystem, including the research faculty of École des Ponts ParisTech, professionals in the field and internationally renowned experts from other countries.
