You will work in a friendly and supportive learning environment with a helpful teaching team who are themselves members of the professional bodies for the architecture and construction industry that accredit this course and other degrees within the Built Environment department. You will undertake a mixture of group and individual work and, where these are related to designs, you will have a dedicated studio space just for architectural design technology students. You will be set projects based on real sites and often design briefs informed by actual architectural practices who employ our students/graduates. Occasionally, as in 2015-2016 you will work on ‘live’ projects where your designs may well be selected by an actual client for development and construction. You will have opportunities to meet specialists from across the architecture and construction industry both at the university and through our extensive programme of site visits. You will have access to the latest Computer Aided Design software like AutoCAD Revit and SketcUp and digital information resources; as well as guidance and support from the teaching team in how best to use these to add to or develop your existing skills.
