Description

Architectural technologists help to bring projects to fruition through making the technical decisions necessary to solve design problems. They need a sound understanding of the processes of design and construction and the management tools, particularly CAD, for the communication of design information. The skills they require are wide ranging, from design and architectural composition, technical analysis and presentation, to the business and management skills necessary for contract procurement and administration. Design and development is an increasingly complex issue, where the formation of design proposals and detailed decision making require expert and professional judgement.
This course is structured so that you will learn to appreciate the multidisciplinary nature of the built environment, and gain a broad understanding of neighbouring disciplines. You will acquire the skills and knowledge to develop your career in an architectural design setting alongside architects, engineers, surveyors and other professionals, practice privately, or run a business either as a partner or a co-director with other professionals in the architectural and construction industries. You will also develop the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
Part-time applicants: Competition for our part-time construction-related courses is strong and we have a limited number of places. To avoid disappointment, please make sure you apply by 30 June 2017.
Course content.

Our construction courses share a common Year 1, so students interact with those studying different pathways, gain some knowledge of the work of all professionals working in the construction industry, promoting the interdisciplinary nature of the modern construction industry. Throughout the course, construction technology and management remain central, the issue of health and safety is addressed, and the importance of sustainability is considered.

Course programme


Our construction courses share a common Year 1, so students interact with those studying different pathways, gain some knowledge of the work of all professionals working in the construction industry, promoting the interdisciplinary nature of the modern construction industry. Throughout the course, construction technology and management remain central, the issue of health and safety is addressed, and the importance of sustainability is considered.
All of our courses are delivered using an enquiry-based blended learning approach involving workshops, lectures, tutorials and independent study. Our technology-enhanced learning supports independent study via synchronous online lectures, tutorials and seminars, which are captured and stored to enable you to revisit sessions online after the event. We assess your learning through a variety of methods including project work, essays and exams.
