Architectural Design Technology is an interdisciplinary course that blends architecture with building engineering, building technology and construction management. Our team of architects, architectural technologists, and engineers will equip you with all the skills and knowledge you need for a rewarding career in this growing field. You will benefit from the contribution of architects and professionals from world-renown practices such as Foster and Partners, Zaha Hadid Architects, Make Architects, SOM, Rogers Stirk Harbour, ARUP, and Atkins.
The course has a strong grounding in design projects and is particularly recognisable by its 'hands-on' approach to architectural design. There is a strong focus on technical studies as well as computer software for Computer Aided Drawing (AutoCAD, Revit, BIM, Adobe Illustrator, Rhino), and building design and energy performance simulations (Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES), and Design Builder). We have world class laboratories and workshops including digital and robotic manufacture (laser cutters, 3D printers, robotic arm).
Remember, because there are no general education courses, you can earn a bachelor's degree in only 3 years at UEL.
