If you are interested in the technical side of architecture, rather than the creative, then our fully accredited degree will develop your expertise in the technology, management and legal aspects of construction. The course covers the range of design problems that architectural technologists work on, including commercial, industrial, retail, leisure and residential projects and these may involve new-build, adaptation, restoration maintenance or interiors. You will be set a number of design projects throughout the course and may undertake these in groups or on an individual basis, to gain the knowledge and skills which enable you to find efficient and effective solutions to the design and construction of buildings.

BSc(Hons) Architectural Technology, 2006
Like many young students before him, Ike Obanye had little idea of what to study and where his life was going to take him. What he did know, however, was that he wanted to move away from London for further education and decided to up sticks and move up north to Preston. Having a general interest in the built environment, Ike eventually decided on the BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course.

John Bridge studied part-time on the BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course and now works as a chartered architect. John graduated from the course with a first, also winning an international design competition, receiving the award on the day of his graduation.

In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above.
