This is a practically focused technical design course, where you will be trained and encouraged to develop the skills to undertake a professional role within the architecture industry.

In a fast changing industry graduates will be enabled to undertake the specialist role in the formation, detailing and specifying of design proposals.

Architectural technologists use their knowledge to make sure building designs work as intended. In contemporary architectural design it can be challenging to meet the needs of the client, community and environment.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, ensuring that you earn a professional focused qualification.

On successful completion of this course, you will be able to pursue a career as an architectural technologist in the construction industry. You will be equipped with the knowledge and skills required for this role, as well as for other design roles within the field of built environment.

You may also wish to undertake postgraduate study to specialise in a subject you've already studied, or to explore something new.
