Architectural technology specialises in the science of architecture, building design and construction. The programme teaches a broad range of topics from construction technology, surveying, material science and structural appreciation. It considers sustainability, energy assessment, conversion and the adaptation of buildings. Additionally, you can learn about industry services, law and architecture studio design, learning practical and visualisation skills using CAD and through model making.
Grades are important; however, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people that demonstrate a strong commitment to their chosen subject area and therefore we welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds. To assess student suitability for their chosen course we normally arrange interviews for all applicants at which your skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as your qualifications.
