Architecture shapes the world around us. It reflects our societies and it influences the way we think and feel. Architecture dominates our skyline, transforms our cities, changes the way we live and work - and becomes part of our narrative. On the BSc Architectural Design and Technology degree, you develop a deep technical understanding of how buildings work and the techniques and materials you need to construct them. You learn to appreciate the historical context of architectural design, while embracing both traditional and innovative technologies. As you progress through your studies, you’ll become mindful of how architectural technology impacts on the world around us, how your work affects our environment and how your practices and approaches can make a positive impact. You may start your degree with a simple desire to design buildings. But you’ll finish with the knowledge, skills and passion to start shaping the way we live and work – and change our world for the better.
