Architectural Technology Birmingham City University

Undergraduate

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), our Architectural Technology course is where the science of construction meets the art of design. Our outstanding industry links mean you’ll have the opportunity to work on live projects, using the very latest technology and techniques. You will learn how to construct designs using CAD (computer aided design) in a three-dimensional format and keep up-to-date with the latest skills such as Building Information Modelling (BIM). You will gain the skills to negotiate with planning and building authorities, and develop the expertise to advise them. You will also investigate project and contract management. Our excellent relationships with employers open up a range of opportunities for work placements. This will enable you to gain first-hand work experience while making valuable professional contacts. It’s an exciting time to study architecture and design in Birmingham – the city is undergoing huge regeneration. This means that there are many opportunities, now and in the future, for those with built environment qualifications. Our City Centre campus is on the threshold of the site of the new HS2 station, so will be at the heart of the city’s future development. These developments also offer opportunities for regular field trips to construction projects throughout the Midlands which will add further relevance to your studies. In 2017, we are spending £8.7 million on improvements to our Millennium Point facilities so you’ll have even more access to dedicated, industry-standard equipment.
