This course has recently produced two award-winning graduates, who gained First and Second (Highly Commended) at the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT)’s 2017 Student Award for Technical Excellence in Architectural Technology.

The architectural design and technology course is professionally accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, meaning that the curriculum meets the specific needs of the architectural technology industry.

Solent architectural design and technology students have the opportunity to showcase their final-year projects to employers and the public at our end-of-year built environment show, and in the past students have secured graduate employment as a result.

Students also have the opportunity to work in our built environment studio. This modern studio space was developed to give a sense of the feel and atmosphere of a working professional studio, bringing students together from various built environment courses to collaborate as they would in the real-world workplace. 

Solent students will study in the heart of an exciting city undergoing significant development, from the royal pier project, the new cultural quarter and Watermark West Quay to Solent University’s own Spark building.
