Computational Design Laboratory


CodeLab is the home of the faculty and students in the Master of Science (MSCD) and Doctoral degrees (PhD-CD) in Computational Design at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Architecture.

These are research-based programs investigating new design opportunities and critical perspectives at the intersection of design and computation. They are well suited to inquisitive applicants interested in challenging disciplinary boundaries, develop a unique research agenda, and acquire the conceptual and technical skills to creatively interrogate computational technologies in design.

Both programs welcome applications from both research and practice-oriented candidates with backgrounds in areas including architecture, media arts, engineering, computer science, planning, and the humanities.
