The master is indeed a turning point in my professional life as an architect dealing with the issue of city planning and housing.
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.
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 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.
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.
MCH has given me a vast knowledge of what as professionals in the world do in a very intense and rigorous working method. The course has given us the opportunity to examine and approach a situation in a responsive and creative method which I find is the key to broaden the understanding of architecture and add it in our professional palette.
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
The Master of Architecture in Collective Housing is an intense and enriching experience, a turning point for any professional who wants to incorporate new ways of thinking, methodologies and knowledge, not only related to the field of collective housing, but also to architecture itself.
It trained me hard in different contexts with different approaches. In theoretical manners and practical ones.
MCH created an environment that allowed for exchanging ideas, values, theories, experiences, cultures that culminated into many different design concepts to be tested by colleagues and international experts.
The important thing about the MCH is not only what happens during its time, but what comes next over the years.
If you are interested in architecture and especially in the part related to collective housing and city, this master will not disappoint you. It is a breath of fresh air and at the same time a hard challenge in the path of learning this wonderful art.
MCH program is one of the most important postgraduate programs, which is totally tested when we are here. The prestige is because, MCH have together the best professors in our disposition for different times. As a student, the program requires a personal maturity and humility to go deep and take advantage of this knowledge.
