Becoming an Architectural Technologist requires specialist skills and confidence – on our new BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course you’ll gain those skills and knowledge to help construction design teams bring new structures to life.


Based at UCA Canterbury’s School of Architecture and Design, you’ll learn a wide range of spatial practices, and the value that an Architectural Technologist can add to architectural practice and society more widely. 

As well as having access to our extensive facilities, including advanced forms of fabrication and prototyping, the latest scanning and VR technology, and traditional crafts, you’ll also learn advanced forms of digital modelling and control, such as building information modelling (BIM), using these tools to develop your own individual approaches to challenges of building construction and detail.


There are open plan studio spaces for each year of the course, used for group tutorials and personal working. Facilities for the (Hons) Architectural Technology course include: laser cutters, 3D printers, a virtual reality lab, a 3D workshop with machines for working in wood, metals, plastics and ceramics, and fully-equipped computer studios with Macs and PCs running software for design and animation.

Programme Structure

  • Year one

Working alongside other spatial practice students (such as those from our architecture course) you will explore the buildings of Canterbury and acquire foundational skills of surveying, spatial modelling and drawing.

  • Year two

In your second year, you will gain specialist knowledge of low carbon construction and environmental design strategies by studying building case studies from across the world.

  • Year three

Guided by our experienced industry experts and practitioners, you will identify and develop your own unique Technologist briefs and explore challenging and aspirational responses to them.
