Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT), our Architectural Technology course is where the science of construction meets the art of design. Our outstanding industry links mean you’ll have the opportunity to work on live projects, using the very latest technology and techniques. You will learn how to construct designs using CAD (computer aided design) in a three-dimensional format and keep up-to-date with the latest skills such as Building Information Modelling (BIM). You will gain the skills to negotiate with planning and building authorities, and develop the expertise to advise them. You will also investigate project and contract management. Our excellent relationships with employers open up a range of opportunities for work placements. This will enable you to gain first-hand work experience while making valuable professional contacts. It’s an exciting time to study architecture and design in Birmingham – the city is undergoing huge regeneration. This means that there are many opportunities, now and in the future, for those with built environment qualifications. Our City Centre campus is on the threshold of the site of the new HS2 station, so will be at the heart of the city’s future development. These developments also offer opportunities for regular field trips to construction projects throughout the Midlands which will add further relevance to your studies. In 2017, we are spending £8.7 million on improvements to our Millennium Point facilities so you’ll have even more access to dedicated, industry-standard equipment.

Foundation years/Year 0 courses: Foundation years (sometimes called Year 0 courses) are designed for students who don’t meet the entry requirements for a particular degree course, and enable them to develop their learning to an appropriate standard in preparation for Year 1 of the degree.Foundation degrees: If your qualifications are slightly below those required for direct entry onto a Bachelor’s degree, Foundation degrees may offer an alternative route to a full undergraduate degree.Higher National Certificates/Higher National Diplomas: Higher National Certificates (HNC) and Higher National Diplomas (HND) are vocational qualifications which often include practical elements as well as theory. It is often possible to ‘top up’ these qualifications to a Bachelor’s degree through further relevant study.Certificate/Diploma in Higher Education: These are similar to HNC and HND qualifications in terms of levels of study achieved. They can potentially be ‘topped up’ to a full Bachelor’s degree in a related subject area.Bachelor’s degree: This is a full undergraduate degree qualification.
