The architectural design and technology course is professionally accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, meaning that the curriculum meets the specific needs of the architectural technology industry.
Solent architectural design and technology students have the opportunity to showcase their final-year projects to employers and the public at our end-of-year built environment show, and in the past students have secured graduate employment as a result.
Students also have the opportunity to work in our built environment studio. This modern studio space was developed to give a sense of the feel and atmosphere of a working professional studio, bringing students together from various built environment courses to collaborate as they would in the real-world workplace.
Solent students will study in the heart of an exciting city undergoing significant development, from the royal pier project, the new cultural quarter and Watermark West Quay to Solent University’s own Spark building.
The course has a strong focus on student employability, balancing professional practice with design and technology studies in order to prepare students for a career in the industry.
Graduates will be well prepared for careers within a range of organisations, including architectural and architectural technology practices, local authorities, housing associations and building contractors. Chartered architectural technologists play a key role in the construction industry, overseeing and supervising projects all the way from inception to completion. They can offer vital technical and innovative solutions to enable the realisation of building concepts, as well as working on BIM collaboration.
Suitable roles for graduates include:
- Architectural technologist
- Technical Manager
- Building designer
- BIM co-ordinator
- Project manager
- Commercial projects and public sector projects.
