För kurser inom Chalmers utbildningsprogram gäller samma behörighetskrav som till de(t) program kursen ingår i.

Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Qualification for the master programme. Bachelor Degree or similar in Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Interior Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Design, Industrial Design, Technical Design, Spatial Planning, Civil Engineering. Participation in the introduction course Sustainable Development and the Design Professions is strongly recommended and will give priority in cases of surplus of applicants.


The main aim is to provide each student with necessary skills and methods that are valid in any situation of change where design approaches are required at different system levels and scales, from urban structures, buildings and technical support systems to detailed construction elements and products. The point of departure is human everyday needs and the support of human survival and decent life in changing environments.

The master program will work in close cooperation with stakeholders in a Nordic context. The purpose is to offer the students the potential to develop professional skills that are valid in various situations and where the aim is to find adapted solutions to the problems at hand. The overall perspective stays the same: the development and implementation of aesthetic, affordable, energy and material efficient, environmental- and user-friendly solutions that support dignified human everyday life.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)

Knowledge and Understanding - Describe and relate to the political vision of Sustainable Development. - Identify its meaning and impact on their professional work. - Review and explain general concepts and conceptual models. - Provide evidence on the usefulness of design for sustainable development in a specific context. Ability and Skill - Be able to use analytic methods and tools for the inventory and analysis of the built environment in different local situations and contexts. - Be able to critically search for information and assess the quality of different sources of information. Ability of Assessment and Attitude - To compare and assess different sources and statements concerning design for sustainable development. - To combine knowledge from different disciplines and sectors in proposals for actions and measures in design for sustainable development. - To broaden the understanding of their own perspective and its limitations, through meetings with other professional and cultural perspectives on sustainable development. - To further develop a critical thinking and reflections on the professional role, the professional ethics and the needs for life-long learning.


Introduction and application of methods and tools for: - Analysis of a local situation concerning natural conditions, the built structure and social formal and informal institutions as well as the different values and perspectives of local stakeholders. - Analysis of driving forces and trends in a broader context. - Analysis of Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) for local sustainable development. - Designing local development goals and adapted strategies for planning and design.


The number of participants in the studio is limited. Students must a) apply through an email to Sylvia Pompe at Studentcentrum (sylvia.pompe@chalmers.se) at least four weeks before the studio starts and b) show up at the first day of the course. If the number of students fulfilling these two requirements are more than the allowed number of participants, priority will be given to students from the master programme Design for Sustainable Development. Students not attending the first course day will lose their place and it will be offered to the next in line. Any exceptions from this procedure have to be cleared with the examiner in advance. For further information about admission and registration, please contact Sylvia Pompe at Studentcentrum (sylvia.pompe@chalmers.se).

The Design Studio 1:A is directed towards sustainable development and the built environment in a smaller municipality/town in Sweden. The design studio includes on site activities in close cooperation with local authorities and communities. The work will be performed in groups that will change from stage to stage of the course. The work will be supported by lectures, literature, seminars and field visits.


A list of relevant compulsory and reference literature will be presented at the start of the Design Studio.


Participation in joint activities and the preparation, presentation and cross-critics of the different course assignments.
