    The Global 30 Urban Design and Architecture Course at the University of Tokyo is dedicated to the interdisciplinary design research connecting architecture, engineering and computations to explore the emerging discourses on architecture and urbanism. It seeks to develop and speculate new knowledge for architecture where the practice of design engages in both social constructs and material performances. It aims to explore the potential of architecture as the essential element to theorize, analyze, organize and generate new ideas of and for the evolving built environments.

    Entry into the G30 Architecture and Urban course is open to talented international graduate students with a minimum of 16 years of education at academic institutions. Previous education in architecture is not required, however, it is strongly recommended. 
    Selection of candidates is conducted by an online interview and portfolio assessment in addition to the admission process outlined by the University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Engineering (the Global 30 program).

    The 24 months full-time MEng in Architecture and Urban Design Course has a taught structure over the first three semesters based on Seminar Courses and Design Studios with Workshops followed by one semester in which students develop their individual research agendas under close supervision resulting in a Design Thesis and Design Project and written Dissertation
