The important thing about the MCH is not only what happens during its time, but what comes next over the years.
The specialties really take you deep into the topic, you learn a lot of things from the professors and also from classmates.
Given the experimental and reflective approach of the MCH, my participation was a qualitative step.
MCH has been a continuous stimulus. The whole course is carefully driven with a high standard of teaching. It is an intensive teamwork training, pointing to clarity and strength of ideas. With the hands on a deep learning, these months have drawn an accurate framework of housing practice.
What I would highlight the most about this Master is the quality of the professors and MCH leaders since they are the best in their fields of expertise and have had a successful trajectory in architecture.
Professionally, the MCH has allowed me, at a very young age, to develop and build a city planning & housing project where I could apply everything learnt during my training.
Working in international teams in workshops led by internationally acclaimed architects broadened my views on city planning & housing and enriched me professionally.
The Specialities offer the opportunity to research and develop the projects during several weeks while meeting some of the most relevant lecturers on those matters. The Workshops teach you how to make important decisions efficiently and develop a project in 5 days along with some of the most recognised architects in the world.
MCH, for me, was a unique, enriching and stimulating experience, which I believe to have changed the course of my professional life.
Despite the Covid crisis, MCH team have made an incredible effort to return to face-to-face lessons, making it possible to meet again and have the workshops all together. Working directly with classmates allows to learn directly from them and to complement lectures and reviews.
The masters propelled my career and increased my quality of life.
I believe MCH course is a challenging course for the participants as it helps in the development of a holistic awareness of the topics concerning housing. I feel that it has fulfilled me as it has trained me to self-evaluate my design and trained with critical analysis of my decisions in bringing out the best deliverable.
The universal importance of housing to individuals and its impact on human security and development were the driving factors behind my interest in enrolling in the MCH program. My aim was to deepen my knowledge in the field of collective housing.
