What will I learn?

Architectural technologists are specialists in the science of architecture, building design and construction. They work closely with architects and help to turn the architect's concept into reality in the completed construction. Concerned with the technical side of design, they ensure that an attractive functional building performs successfully.

They ensure the right materials are used and that building regulations are met. They also monitor quality assurance, costs and deadlines and will help to lead projects from conception through to completion.
