Our new Architectural Technology degree brings together all aspects of the design process, from concept through to completion, to develop the key skills you'll need for a career in this exciting and fast-growing sector. Learning will be centred around our dedicated design studios where you will work on authentic design projects, developing a sound understanding of the processes of design and construction primarily through Revit and BIM. You will gain an understanding of the multidisciplinary and collaborative nature of the modern construction industry, and the management of projects using cutting-edge technologies. Studying Architectural Technology at Bradford will give you the framework to practice privately or, on successful completion of CIAT (The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists), to run a business in the architectural and construction industries. The programme is delivered using an enquiry-based learning approach involving workshops, lectures, tutorials and independent study. We assess your learning through a variety of methods including project work, essays and exams. A sandwich placement year, taken in year three of the programme, enables you to develop your skills and professional confidence - and boosts your employability on graduation. At Bradford you'll benefit from:
- Industry experienced tutors – our tutors have extensive track records of project design and delivery
- Outstanding lab and studio facilities
