An Architectural Technologist is a technical designer skilled in the application and integration of architectural and construction technologies in the building design process.
The TU831 BSc (Honours) Architectural Technology programme is an immersive, full-time programme, which will prepare you for practice and requires attendance five days a week. A studio setting provides a structured environment in which you will work alongside other students and be exposed to a variety of teaching and learning experiences.
Project work is of a practical, hands-on nature and is supported by lectures, critiques, one-to-one tutorials, group work, and construction skills classes. The Technical Design Studio provides a focus for developing skills in three-dimensional problem-solving, including freehand drawing and model-making. Our studios are equipped to enable manual drawing and the use of PCs and personal laptops, so you can carry out your project work using a variety of media and approaches.
Studio projects develop skills in Building Information Modelling (BIM) to produce 3D digital models and 2D working drawings. The studio format offers flexibility for you to attend project-related site visits and field trips away from college. These experiences are supplemented by industry and professional presentations, and specialist structural engineering and building services workshops. Incoming students find studio learning-intensive and demanding, with a workload regularly requiring 40+ hours per week. You’re advised to buy a laptop with a minimum performance specification required to operate BIM software (available for free under an academic licence).
The programme also includes a work placement in Semester 2 of Year 3.
