About

The BSc Architectural Technology (Hons) degree course at De Montfort University will help you develop the skills you need to become a specialist in the science of architecture, building design and building economics on this industry accredited course.

Overview

This Architectural Technology (Hons) course at De Montfort University focuses on detailed decisions about the design and construction of buildings and their immediate surroundings. Architectural Technology is concerned with new and existing buildings and examines how detail relates to the design concept. 

This field is also central to the communication of design decisions to members of the construction team and vital to ensuring that work is carried out in the correct manner.  

The course will help you evolve the knowledge and skills required in understanding, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation relative to design, technology, management and practice.  It will also help advance your architectural management proficiency by bringing together all aspects of the design process, from concept through to completion. 

Key features

  • Benefit from our 125-year history, which makes Leicester School of Architecture one of the most established schools of its kind in the UK.
  • Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), meaning that you can apply for associate membership of CIAT, with the opportunity to progress towards chartered membership (MCIAT).
  • Accreditation from the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) enables you to apply for graduate membership of CABE, with the opportunity to progress towards chartered membership (MCABE).
  • Boost your career prospects with an optional industry placement year. Our students have benefited from working in roles such as Assistant Architecture Technologist at Isherwood McCann, a leading architectural company with expertise in large-scale logistics warehouse developments.
  • Gain valuable international experience as part of your studies with our DMU Global programme. Previous trips have taken students overseas to work on live projects in Berlin in collaboration with Aedas, a leading international  architecture and design practice.

Graduate careers

Many of our students will work towards chartered membership with the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists or the Chartered Association of Building Engineers status upon graduation, by gaining a further two years of practical training. While for others, the course provides an ideal transition to postgraduate study such as the Architecture and Sustainability MSc at DMU. 

Architectural technologists may work independently or provide technical assistance to professional architects and civil design engineers in conducting research, preparing drawings, architectural models, specifications and contracts and in supervising construction projects. Whichever sector they work in, architectural technologists’ knowledge and understanding of how to link concept to reality means they are ideally equipped to provide a wide range of services.
