What will I learn? 

In the first year of study you will cover the fundamental areas of architecture including: design, technology, cultural context and communication. You will also learn methods of hand drawing, sketching, model making and orthographic drawing.

In the second year you will consider the importance of the tectonics of architecture and start to make informed choices about materials, structure and environmental design. You will learn a range of skills including CAD, 3D modelling and will begin to develop your own digital literacy.

In the third year you will undertake a comprehensive design project that incorporates the core subjects of design, technology and environment and reflects your own emerging design philosophy. You will undertake an extended essay or a larger written dissertation on a subject of your choice. You will also work on a design project with students studying related disciplines in the university to develop an design proposal in groups.

You will also work collaboratively with students from the engineering and built environment disciplines as a team on a design project which mirrors working in practice.
