Professional Practice

The city of London has a very strong architectural, engineering and art scene, offering a variety of events, talks and exhibitions related to the topics investigated in the Emergent Technologies and Design programme. Playing an active role in this scene, EmTech organizes a series of lectures by practitioners from the leading offices of London, with which we share a very strong relationship, while they are also invited as critics in the studio presentations. This enables our students to have a direct relationship and contact with the professional life of London, an advantage which is expressed by the large number of EmTech alumni that work in leading practices of the city of London.

EmTech graduates take on various professional opportunities after graduating from the programme. Some of the recent employers in London and around the world include: AECOM (London), AHMM (London), Ai Build (London), AKT II (London), Arup (London), BIG (London), Bryden Wood (London), Buro Happold (London), Coop Himmelblau (Vienna), Foster + Partners (London), Grimshaw Architects (London), Heatherwick Studio (London), KPF (London), Make Architects (London), OMA (Rotterdam), PLP Architecture (London), Populous (London), Robofold (London), Ron Arad Associates (London),  SOM (London), SHoP Architects (New York), Thornton Tomasetti (London), UN Studio (Amsterdam), Wilkinson Eyre Architects (London), Zaha Hadid Architects (London)  amongst others.
