If you are creative and like architecture, design, drawing, IT and problem solving, then a career in architectural technology may be right for you.
Architectural technologists are involved in developing some of the world’s most iconic structures. As an expert in the science and technology of architecture, you should be able to bring buildability, durability, sustainability and performance to enhance your designs, then oversee the work to make them become reality.
During this professionally accredited course, we will cover the study of architectural design, construction technology and a range of multidisciplinary integrated projects to help prepare you for your future as a specialist in building design and construction.
We provide opportunities for you to be inspired by historic and contemporary architectural projects on fieldtrips here in the UK and abroad. Recent students have undertaken fully funded trips to London and Rome, as well as subsidised visits to Cardiff and Barcelona.
Our facilities include the Coventry University Simulation Centre, which is the most advanced interactive people training and development centre in the UK, as well as studios and laboratories equipped with the latest versions of 2D, 3D and CAD visualisation software, building information management (BIM) software and building performance analysis programs,
We enjoy excellent links with the industry including Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologist, Chartered Institute of Building, TRADA and the BRE many of whom provide direct input into course development as members of our Building Advisory Board. You could also gain involvement with the construction community through networking and placement opportunities, which can enhance your employment prospects on graduation.
You will be taught by staff with academic and professional experience in architectural practice, civil engineering and the construction industry. We also have a strong portfolio of industry-related research, particularly in the areas of low carbon building technology, sustainable construction materials and engineering education, which ensures you stay abreast of new technologies and emerging issues.
