Architecture: Digital Technology


The Stackable Graduate Certificate in Architecture: Digital Technology is for students who are interested in using advanced and emerging digital technologies for design at multiple scales. Courses that fulfill the certificate requirements include instruction on software, computational design methods, digital fabrication, and digital design theory. Students will be exposed to a variety of different computer programs and design processes while pursuing this certificate. They will learn how to leverage computational design to create new objects, buildings, and cities that would otherwise not be possible. Students will learn how contemporary architectural theory shapes this discourse.

The stackable graduate certificate is open to any UT Austin degree-seeking graduate student and requires three classes (nine credit hours).


  • ONLY the ARC graduate sections of the courses listed below may fulfill the Stackable Graduate Certificate requirements.
  • Please do not register for a cross-listing in another discipline or an undergraduate section. It is not possible to count any other section toward this Stackable Graduate Certificate. 

Contact the Graduate Program Coordinator with any course registration questions or for more information.
