Architecture and Interior Design

By studying architecture and interior design at Coventry University, you can be challenged intellectually, artistically, and creatively. Professionally accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), our architecture course adopts a hands-on approach to learning with a focus on imagination, communication, and context.

We run skills sessions to support drawing and model making as an integral part of studio work, and you will also have access to excellent workshops run by specialists in the areas of woodworking and digital design processes from laser etching to electroplating.

Our Interior Architecture and Design course gives you the chance to explore spatial design at its most innovative. You can also develop your technical knowledge and understanding of volume and space, light, function and use.

Our long-established and highly regarded degrees equip you with a broad range of skills from drawing and sketching, to visually communicating and presenting design concepts. Our students have access to modern facilities including robotic milling, laser cutting, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and excellent clay modelling facilities.

The Architectural Technology course brings together disciplines of architectural design and construction technology, and students will have access to the Coventry University Simulation Centre, one of the most advanced interactive people training and development centres 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.

Our subjects aim to blend the creative and artistic, alongside developing the professional skills you’ll need to help shape your future career.
