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 four major themes: technology, design, management and practice. Our course will give you the skills you need to practise successfully in each area, along with a thorough understanding of scientific, technological and organisational principles. Explore the principles of practice management, rationalized architectural design and how to lead projects from residential to commercial. You will learn to play a pivotal role in the design and construction process.

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 will learn to appreciate detailed design and production information, including regulatory issues, and how they relate to procurement and contract administration. You will also explore social, legal and economic considerations.

You will 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 will 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 will 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.

As an expert in the technical side of architectural design, you will be ready to work in traditional architecture and construction roles. This might involve managing building projects, making sure that budgets and deadlines are met, the correct materials are used, and regulations are satisfied.

Alternatively, you might take up opportunities in manufacturing and processing, management, health, or government institutions.

Graduation does not need to be the end of your time with us. If you would like to continue your studies, we offer a wide range of full-time and part-time postgraduate courses including MSc Conservation of Buildings and MSc Town Planning.
