  • Objectives
    The BSc(Hons) Architectural Technology and Design has been developed to meet the growing need for people who can bridge the gap between the concepts of architectural design and the technologies required to produce a practical 'buildable' solution.

    Content

    Year 1

    The first year introduces design concepts through studio work and computer modelling, whilst technologies are developed from basic scientific principles. The Faculty's theme for an inter-professional approach starts from the first day and continues throughout the course.

    Areas that you will study include:

        * Design, through studio-based projects
        * Design in context
        * Construction technologies
        * Law and construction contracts
        * Environments and construction materials

    Year 2

    Building on the principles of Year 1 in both design and technology, the application of all aspects of design are practised and applied to a range of building problems.

    Areas studied include:

        * Elemental and integrated design
        * Building defects and property surveys
        * Technology, design and environment
        * Structural design technology
        * Building services engineering
        * Inter-professional project, with students other professional courses

    Final year

    Final year students are expected to apply the whole range of their knowledge to large scale building projects, producing both detailed appraisal and 'new build' design solutions. This will involve conceptual design, consideration of production techniques and constraints, developing solutions using computer models, producing working drawings and documentation, and client advice on long-term sustainability issues.

    Areas studied include:

        * Integrated building design
        * Project and contract management
        * Professional practice
        * Inter-professional project, with students from related disciplines
        * Services and structures
