The specialties really take you deep into the topic, you learn a lot of things from the professors and also from classmates.
Looking back after finishing MCH, I am convinced I could not have chosen a better option, as I grew up intellectually and personally. We have really had great professionals teaching at MCH.
Furthermore, teamwork is a big part of this master. In most cases we had to learned how to take fast decisions and learn from others. Debates and discussions are part of this master and that makes it more interesting and challenging.
The working atmosphere has been incredible in many ways, such as the commitment and quality of the professors, who are devoted and passionate about teaching, and the personal contact with all the people in charged.
The amount of knowledge and produced work is incredible, considering the sort time of period. The professors are well-known architects with great experience in their fields. The opportunity to work near to prestigious professionals such as Andrea Deplazes, Dietmar Eberle, Alison Brooks, Anne Lacaton is an invaluable experience.
During the development of the MCH major skills were acquired, both technical and experimental, which all play a very important role since they are complements and all must be part of the development of a good architectural project
After completing more than the half of the program, I have to say that my expectations are being met. The format is mainly practical, and very very intense. The rhythm varies along the weeks and subjects, which allows each one to be organised according to their needs.
The important thing about the MCH is not only what happens during its time, but what comes next over the years.
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.
Strategic thought, clarity and strength of ideas, teamwork and amazing personal relationships are just some of the things than come to my mind when I think about MCH.
Working in international teams in workshops led by internationally acclaimed architects broadened my views on city planning & housing and enriched me professionally.
MCH not only gave me the opportunity to increase my professional knowledge through each workshop, it also provided an international networking that allowed participants to create and work in architecture from a global perspective.
The master's degree is simply extraordinary and I think it has changed the lives of each and every one of the students who have gone through its more than ten editions.
