What is architectural technology?
Architectural technology focuses on the technical, structural and environmental aspects of building design. The professional role requires skills in architectural design, expertise in building construction and up-to-date industry knowledge in order to turn concepts into reality.

This course

Prepare for your career on a course which has gained a reputation for design excellence among employers and the professional body. Our students regularly win national awards for their technical design excellence, and graduates develop successful careers in the sector.

As a student, you study the latest techniques being used in architecture today on a course that has been designed in consultation with employers and industry experts.

You benefit from very high standards of teaching. We have been awarded 'centre of excellence in architectural technology' status by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) for the high standard of teaching and research of lecturers on this course.

You are taught by a team that includes qualified technologists, architects and environmental experts with experience in industry making them ideally placed to advise you on the development of your work and your career as an architectural technologist.

Your learning is focused on tutored and self-directed project work in the design studios, which include 24 hour access. You combine your creative time in the studio with lectures, seminars, and national and international fieldwork. The course is very hands on with practical construction classes and model making in our workshops.

You use a range of CAD software including state-of-the-art Building Information Modelling (BIM), virtual reality, and energy and environmental simulation tools. CAD technology is used throughout the course.

You can apply what you’ve learnt in a third year placement as a trainee architectural technologist in a national or international practice. You benefit from our well established and long-standing relationships with practices, such as WS Atkins and The Bond Bryan Partnership. Students are regularly offered permanent work or sponsorship by their placement providers.

Recent field trips, to study the history of cultural and technical design, include visits to European cities such as Barcelona, Paris, Lyon, Berlin and Venice. There is also an option for an international study exchange in your second year.
