Overview

Architectural technologists help to bring projects to fruition through making the technical decisions necessary to solve design problems. They need a sound understanding of the processes of design and construction and the management tools, particularly CAD, for the communication of design information. 

The skills they require are wide ranging, from design and architectural composition, technical analysis and presentation, to the business and management skills necessary for contract procurement and administration. Design and development is an increasingly complex issue, where the formation of design proposals and detailed decision-making requires expert and professional judgement.

This Architectural Technology (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster will help you acquire the skills and knowledge to develop your career in an architectural design setting alongside architects, engineers, surveyors and other professionals, practice privately, or run - upon successful MCIAT chartership - a business either as a partner or a co-director with other professionals in the architectural and construction industries. You will also develop the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development.
