About

If you are a creative person who would like to be part of designing a better world you might like studying in the Architecture (Hons) programme. In Waterford Institute of Technology we are interested in sustainability, rural and urban landscapes; conservation and working with local communities.

Overview

Architecture (Hons) from Waterford Institute of Technology is a 5 year honours degree course, designed in accordance with national and international guidelines on architectural education. The B.Arch.(hons) in WIT was the first outside of Dublin to receive full accreditation by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (RIAI) in 2005. It is also recognized under European Directive  2005/36/EC. Studying architecture in an accredited programme is the first step towards becoming a registered professional architect.

Architectural education at WIT is primarily about developing within each student a ‘design mind’ so that they can bring together in a creative way the complex challenges facing the future world of construction. Students are introduced to design methodologies and work in a ‘learning through doing’ environment in the studio where they explore architectural designs growing in complexity as they progress through the various years. 

Students learn the importance of culture, climate and craft in developing design ideas. Feeding into these studio based projects are the supporting subjects grouped under the generic headings of ‘Cultural Context’, ‘Communications’, ‘Technology & the Environment’ and a suite of electives including Work Placement.

  • Architectural Design Offices
