Course Introduction

Architectural technologists help to bring projects to fruition through making the technical decisions necessary to solve design problems. They need a sound understanding of the processes of design and construction and the management tools, particularly CAD, for the communication of design information. This course is structured so that you will learn to appreciate the multidisciplinary nature of the built environment, and gain a broad understanding of neighbouring disciplines. You will acquire the skills and knowledge to develop your career in an architectural design.

This course is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, the Chartered Institute of Building, and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.

You will be taught by full'time academics and visiting lecturers all of whom have industry experience and professional qualifications.

Course Modules

You will take six modules each year; core subjects covered include environmental design and engineering, fabric and performance, design principles, structures, construction'based project learning, low carbon construction, and maintenance and refurbishment, as well as design projects in Year 2 and 3. In your final year you will also choose one of four management option modules, focusing on management and professional practice, project evaluation and development, strategic management, or project and commercial management. You will have the opportunity to complete credit'bearing internships, work placements and voluntary placements as part of your course.
