Over the 7 months we have had excellent professors who helped me to develop my skills to the edge.
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.
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 MCH created many international contacts with participants and teachers, and through this, allowed me to work in an internationally acclaimed European office.
The specialties really take you deep into the topic, you learn a lot of things from the professors and also from classmates.
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.
After attending lectures on housing at GSD Harvard, MIT, etc. I still consider that the MCH at ETSAM provides the best comprehensive educational framework regarding the multifamily dwelling.
This is what I was searching for; no competitiveness (bad one), just enjoying the intense process, learning from very different countries and workflows, and clarifying what I want for my future after some years of professional experience.
MCH has been an Intensive course. Moving at breakneck speeds with hands on learning, and support through several workshops and interactive sessions, really makes you put your all into it.
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.
The masters propelled my career and increased my quality of life.
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.
The permanent intensive work turned out, on one hand, into surprising results in quality and quantity and, on the other hand, into a collaborative atmosphere that generated friendships forever.
