This course provides students with the opportunity to get a well-rounded experience in architecture. Architectural teaching in Huddersfield has a history dating back over 90 years; the town is a fine example of buildings from the traditional to the modern a number of which can be found in and around the University precinct. Huddersfield's position mid-way between the cities of Leeds and Manchester means it is ideally placed to explore architecture at a range of scales and within a regional context. The course also includes themes of sustainability, modern and efficient methods of construction and urban design.
