This course presents architectural technology as a discrete discipline and brings together aspects of architecture, civil engineering, services engineering, environmental science and building information modelling in a practical and industry-focused degree.
Designed to provide a range of skills increasingly in demand in the technical arenas of construction, urban planning and architecture, this Architectural Technology degree provides an alternative route into high-end roles within these industries.
The degree focuses on both creating architectural form/function, and also understanding how modern buildings work - turning conceptual designs and drawings into a practical building project. Building Information Modelling (BIM) techniques are used in all aspects of the programme, and you will be introduced to new, efficient and lean methodologies in construction technologies, processes, people, policies and standards.
You will develop sought-after workplace skills in project management – including costing, scheduling, resourcing, quality and risk assessment, legislations and legal issues, facilities maintenance and operations. These skills are enhanced through real-life projects with our partnerships in industry in UK and abroad.
The course teaches skills in creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, communication, and state-of-the-art technologies. Complementary modules cover structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering; plumbing, audio systems, heating and lighting, and analysing sustainable energy and environmental solutions.
