This course runs from 2017/18

As an architectural technologist your work is interesting and varied, primarily concerned with the design and technical performance of buildings. We prepare you for this by providing a practical environment in which to study.

Why choose this course? 

This course aims to develop your skills to become a Architectural Technologist by undertaking multi- disciplinary integrated projects that will run throughout your course. This helps prepare you for your future as a specialist in building design and construction.

If you choose this course you can benefit from:

  • a course which is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)*;
  • teaching from fully qualified and experienced staff who have a high level of design and technical experience in the construction industry and who are still involved in research projects;
  • studios and laboratories equipped with the latest versions of CAD software including 2D, 3D and visualisation software, building information management software and building performance analysis programs;
  • the opportunity to apply for placements with employers to gain practical experience in the construction industry;
  • the opportunity to take part in events where you will meet members of the local design and building community, and attend professional development meetings held by the professional institutions
  • on campus;
  • a course that achieved an overall satisfaction of 100% in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2014.


What will I learn? 

On this course you will learn the fundamental topics that are important to all professions: technical knowledge and understanding, communication, problem solving and personal development.

The course will pay particular attention to the architectural design process, the cultural and economic environment in which development takes place, building performance analysis and the construction technologies available to achieve sustainable building solutions. You will also be given grounding in the drawing and modelling of architectural forms, and the research techniques to assess materials and components.

How will this course be taught? 

You will find that your timetable has a range of learning opportunities, from lectures, seminars and tutorials to laboratories, workshops and studio sessions. You will also spend a large amount of time working with other students to apply your skills to relevant engineering and design problems.

You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you can develop professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.

How will I be assessed? 

You will be assessed through a mixture of coursework and examination. Coursework will be assessed through drawings, models, presentations and written reports and essays.

An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows:

  • practical or project work 40%;
  • formal examinations 30%;
  • coursework, tests, essays 10%;
  • group work 10%;
  • presentations, posters 10%. 

Teaching contact hours 

In a typical week you will have up to 20 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:

Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 6 hours of practical classes, tutorials and project work (or later, individual project supervision) each week.

Medium-group teaching: 6 hours of tutorials, CAD or drawing studio each week.

Large-group teaching: 8 hours of lectures each week.

Personal study: 20 hours to study and revise in your own time, including some guided study using handouts, online activities.
