Architectural Technology and Design

BSc(Hons) Architectural Technology and Design, meets the growing need to bridge the gap between the concepts of architectural design and the technologies required to produce a practical 'buildable' solution. Following a structured programme of study including aspects of construction technology, structural design, building science and digital visualisation, it is in the design studio that this learning is tested holistically. The ambition in Architectural Technology and Design (or ATD) is to be able to design with a strong material and detailing knowledge. To be able to converse, understand, have an awareness of and work with other construction professionals and forge a strong specialist identity, where the design and selection of appropriate materials, components and technologies is at the fore. The course is accredited by CIAT (Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists) who state that their practitioners will be able to analyse, synthesise and evaluate design factors in order to produce design solutions, which will satisfy performance, production and procurement criteria.
