Welcome everyone, to the final stage of the examination process for the Diploma Degree project at KTH School of Architecture. Throughout this week, 69 students from the Degree Programme in Architecture, including our 2-year Master’s Programme in Architecture, will present their projects. We are very proud that so many students have reached this last stage of the architectural education at KTH – and soon ready to meet the challenges of professional life.
The Diploma Degree Project at KTH comprises 30 credits and is a final assignment that the student develops independently to demonstrate that s/he masters academic and professional skills of the architect. The project should address an architectural design problem and must be carried out within the specified time frame of one term. During the term that precedes the degree project, however, the student formulates a programme and a workplan, a so-called
Thesis Booklet, in close dialogue with an appointed supervisor from one of our design studios.
As part of the examination, an external jury is appointed to ensure a fruitful and critical discussion; and to contextualise each project in relation to contemporary practice and discourse. The external jury also contributes a most valuable quality assessment of our programme as a whole, twice a year.
On this occasion we have invited experienced architects from universities and architectural firms across Europe, who will work in three parallel jury groups. We welcome you all to our school!
