WHAT WILL I LEARN?
On this Architectural Technology course you will learn the fundamental topics which are important to all professions: technical knowledge and understanding, communication, problem solving and personal development.
The course will pay particular attention to the architectural design process, the cultural and economic environment in which development takes place, building performance analysis and the construction technologies available to achieve sustainable building solutions. You will also be given grounding in the drawing and modelling of architectural forms, and the research techniques to assess materials and components.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
You will find that your timetable has a range of learning opportunities, from lectures, seminars and tutorials to laboratories, workshops and studio sessions. You will also spend a large amount of time working with other students to apply your skills to relevant engineering and design problems.
You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you can develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.
