Overview

Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), our Architectural Technology course is where the science of construction meets the art of design. The course focuses not only on the creation of the built environment, but also the structuring of space in and around it.

The course inspires the development of a detailed appreciation of and ability to analyse existing and create new designs, all with buildability, technology, procurement and contractual relations and the actors involved in the process in mind. This is set within the social, regulatory, technical, sustainable and aesthetic context of the UK and global development industry.

With our outstanding industry links, you’ll work on live projects, using the very latest technology and techniques. You will learn how to construct designs using CAD in a three-dimensional format. You’ll also be kept up to date with the latest skills, such as BIM, where we actively involve students in the creation of a BIM model for a prestigious UK building.

We help you gain the skills to negotiate with planning and building authorities, and develop the expertise to advise them. You will also investigate project and contract management.

Our excellent relationships with employers open up a range of opportunities for work placements. This will enable you to gain first-hand experience of the work of architectural technologists while making valuable professional contacts.

With the support of experienced and qualified staff, you’ll use facilities that reflect the work environment you’ll enter after graduation. Studying at our expanding City Centre Campus, you’ll be immersed in a creative environment with the chance to be inspired by the urban architecture of Birmingham.

The city plays host to regular festivals that celebrate architecture, including the Birmingham Architecture Festival, RIBA West Midlands’ Love Architecture Festival and Still Walking.

Regular field trips to construction projects throughout the Midlands will add further colour and relevance to your studies as you gain inspiration from a variety of landscapes and settings.

Former graduates have progressed into roles with a variety of different organisations including Associated Architects and Chartwells, as well as several other smaller independent practices.
