Our course focuses on the link between building design and production, and gives you the technical understanding needed to bridge the two.
Architectural technology has three major themes: technology, design, and procurement and contracts. Our course will give you the skills you need to practise successfully in each area, and a thorough understanding of scientific, technological and organisational principles.
Focusing on the relationships between materials, function, production and the environment, our course will help you to think about buildings in terms of ‘buildability’, sustainability and performance. You’ll learn to appreciate detailed design and production information, including regulatory issues, and how they relate to procurement and contract administration. You’ll also explore social, legal and economic considerations.
You’ll cover business and management, professional practice and contract administration. This will prepare you to contribute to the running of a successful practice.
Site visits and study trips will develop your understanding of the sector and connect you with industry. You’ll also learn to use practical and digital modelling and testing techniques to turn designs into reality. At our end-of-year Architecture and Planning Exhibition, you’ll have the chance to display your work to the public.
Our course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, and is designated as a Construction Industries Board course in the built environment.
