Mit Phd Thesis
Generally all subject work is completed by the end of the second year of residency and all other requirements, except for the dissertation, are completed by the end of the third year.
The concentration on Islamic architecture and urbanism is an integral part of the HTC section.
The concentration in Advanced Urbanism seeks doctoral applicants (one to two per year) who have: 1) at least one professional design degree (in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, etc.); 2) research interests in urbanism that would draw upon both ARCH and DUSP faculty advising; and 3) a commitment to engage with the research community at the LCAU and within their home department throughout their time at MIT.
Applicants should apply for admission to an existing ARCH or DUSP Ph D program and must meet all specific admissions requirements of the respective Ph D program.
Admissions committees nominate applicants who fit the urbanism program to a joint advanced urbanism admissions committee.
The selected applicants are admitted by their home department discipline group (DUSP; AKPIA, BT, Computation, HTC) with financial support and research assistantships from LCAU.
