The Architectural Technologist is a highly skilled technical professional within the construction industry. As contemporary building design evolves, the role of the Architectural Technologist has become central to the construction process. Buildings are constructed within a changing technical environment requiring ever increasing specialisation.
The central mechanism to deliver this skill and knowledge is through studio project work to develop the student’s ability to problem-solve. The projects increase in technical complexity as the course progresses through the first three years of the Architectural Technology (Hons) programme at the Atlantic Technological University, concentrating on newly constructed buildings.
In fourth year the emphasis of the project work shifts to adaptation of existing buildings. This includes research and analysis of the building and proposals for its future adaptation and upgrade. The analysis of the building will be assisted through the use of 2D & 3D modelling and simulation packages to arrive at a sustainable and cost-effective solution.
Students will also be encouraged to apply and test their dissertation research to their project work, creating an integrated and personal approach to the area of sustainable building upgrades.
In recognition of the practical nature of the course, GMIT provides students of Architectural Technology with dedicated studio spaces for each course year equipped with manual and PC drawing facilities, the latest IT software and plotting facilities.
