The Master of Environmental Design at the University of Calgary is a research-based master’s degree tailored to recent graduates of professional architecture, planning, or landscape architecture programs — those who want to develop an area of specialization early in their career.
As a research-intensive, thesis-based degree, emerging professionals are enabled to extend their education beyond the basic professional degree to explore an area of expertise or practice specialization that will build their CV, increase their value to prospective employers, and accelerate their career objectives.
Students enrolled in the Mitacs Accelerate stream partake in a unique 16-month version of the MEDes that partners students with leading design firms. Students split the time of their studies between a paid internship (8 months), courses, thesis-writing and defense.
