Course content

Specialise in the technical aspects of the design, construction and performance of buildings and discover how you can shape the built environment around you. This course will give you the flexibility to do just that, at a time and pace convenient for you.

You will have the opportunity to tailor your study to your career ambitions and personal interests as you focus on several projects throughout this flexible course. You could choose to explore commercial properties, residential buildings or any structures of particular interest to you. We will help you engage with the creative and technical aspects of the building industry, and you will have access to specialist software, including AutoCAD, Revit, Photoshop and Google SketchUp.

The variety and purpose of buildings vary hugely across the world and you will study the latest international practices in architectural technology to inform your learning. You will explore construction technology, construction law and building regulations, enabling you to create comprehensive specifications for the design projects you propose. Your projects will cultivate your individual design flair and you will produce a portfolio of work that will highlight your skills and knowledge as an architectural technologist.
