Overview

The course focuses on the creation of the built environment. The Architectural Technologist addresses the requirements and limitations of the client in their need for functioning and productive development, matches then against the varying needs, requirements and limitations of the social, regulatory, technical, sustainable and aesthetic influences on the UK's built environment.

The students are exposed to the sometimes overlapping and contradictory visions for the built environment and encouraged to consider the components of these visions in the leadership of the development process towards a successful and sustainable future.

The course, accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, supports the students to develop into a rounded and successful professional technologist. It provides them with the ability and confidence to work with, and respect the expertise of, other professionals. It encourages the student to develop their own pathway into the industry, and the confidence to develop their own ideas and viewpoints.

Uniquely, the course integrates the required outcomes of the professional body with a broad grounded theory, practically applied and reinforced by a rigorous and ethical teaching and assessment profile.

The course is designed to reflect this philosophy in its teaching learning and assessment, with an emphasis on the student experience involving active learning and the closeness of staff/student interaction.
