As an architectural technologist you will be the technical member of the design team, making sure that designs are buildable, durable, sustainable, economical and easy to maintain. This course will prepare you for industry challenges, encouraging you to push the boundaries, exercise professional judgement, and understand that architectural technology is about peoples’ lives, as well as impacts on the built and natural environment, and society. You will learn to take architectural design projects from concept to completion, focusing on building technology, function and performance. You will gain extensive knowledge of design processes, construction methods, environments, materials and the latest technologies. This includes the opportunity to learn Building Information Modelling (BIM) to level 2, giving you a competitive advantage when you graduate. With a focus on interdisciplinary learning, you will work with students from related courses on projects that mirror the real-world working environment. You will gain insight into building services and professional practice and develop your theoretical knowledge and skills through field trips and visits to construction sites. The option of a salaried placement year gives you the opportunity to gain vital work experience, enhance your CV and make valuable industry contacts.
