Are you interested in getting a glimpse into a career where creativity, technical and sociological knowledge and skills converge? The Minor Architectural Design is an attractive and challenging program for students with design skills and interest in the built environment around us.  

The Minor will give you an insight on solving problems within the various domains of the built environment in a creative manner/form. You will learn the tools to approach (societal) problems through spatial solutions. 
You will further develop your design mind-set, which is characterized by simultaneously analysing and solving problems. The Design Thinking methodology will be used, which is solution focused and action orientated towards creating a preferred and better future. This methodology draws upon logic, imagination, intuition, technical possibilities and systemic reasoning, to explore possibilities of what could be. 

You will also develop the ability to visualize concepts as well as give advice on the various parties involved in a building process. The Minor has a flexible structure where you can develop according to your own interest, fascination and previous knowledge.
