Overview

At the Robert Gordon University studying the BSc/MSc of Architecture you will develop an understanding of the basic elements and techniques of architectural design, philosophy and technology, as well as areas relating to the practice of architecture as a business. 

Your design skills and creativity will increase and improve, and you will learn about architectural history and theory, construction processes, materials, structures and other aspects that define human comfort. 

By the end of Year 3 you will have become much more independent, be able to tackle complex problems or scenarios and be ready for a period of professional practice.

It also enables you to progress to the final professional examination (RIBA Part 3) following a period in practical training. Successful completion of this allows you to become a Registered Architect.

Exciting career opportunities exist in architectural practices across the world, in both the private and public sectors. Previous graduates have established their own architectural practices, while others hold senior positions in distinguished design firms and multidisciplinary organisations.
