Architectural Technology (BSc)
Architectural technologists are specialists in the science of architecture, building design and construction. They work closely with architects and help to turn the architect's concept into reality in the completed construction. Concerned with the technical side of design, they ensure that an attractive functional building performs successfully.
They ensure the right materials are used and that building regulations are met. They also monitor quality assurance, costs and deadlines and will help to lead projects from conception through to completion.
These programmes in Architectural Technology are concerned with buildings and their performance.
The discipline centres on building design and specification; it also embraces project management, legal, cultural, historic and economic factors as well as environmental issues.
The aims of the awards are to:
Enable you to assess accurately a range of technological problems whilst delivering appropriate pragmatic solutions
Provide an in-depth understanding of the technical, economic, legal and organisational aspects embraced within the Architectural Technology profession
Equip you with a range of skills as required by technologists either whilst working in professional practice or within large organisations.
