Course Summary

**Behind every grand design is great technical expertise. As our built environment becomes more complex, the BSc (Hons) Architectural Design and Technology degree at Salford is your gateway to a rewarding career making building concepts a reality.**Architectural technologists specialise in the science and art of architecture. They apply high-level design skills and sophisticated technology to connect an architect’s concept to its final construction. If you’re fascinated by the technical side of architecture, our Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) accredited course will guide you through the technical, constructional and environmental aspects of building creation.Salford is a leading centre for architecture - we’re consistently ranked in the World Top 100 universities (QS 2018) for Architecture and Built Environment study. Learning takes place in our Peel Park campus, minutes from buzzing Manchester, recently voted the UK’s most liveable city.* You’ll follow a three-year, modular programme based on industry skills and competencies, with the option to add a work placement year. You’ll study architectural theory alongside practical design projects, delivered in a collaborative studio culture that reflects how contemporary architecture firms work.Drawing on our strong industry connections, you’ll develop strong design awareness and a solid understanding of construction processes. You’ll study alongside other architecture students to learn how the built environment works. You’ll manage design information, develop BIM and digital design skills and enhance your design portfolio, drawing on guest lectures and live briefs to present and interact with industry.The global built environment sector is increasingly reliant on technology to create sustainable urban spaces, placing the skills of our architectural design and technology graduates in great demand. Architectural technologists, working in roles such as BIM specialist or CAD design technician, are highly-sought by architectural and urban design practices, planning consultancies, developers and local government.Features• Apply modelling and analysis to explore interactions between a building and its internal and external environments• Study the relationships between shape, material, performance, load, and construction• Explore the role of nature, people and technology in design, and the environmental dimensions that influence the building design process• Develop critical awareness and appreciation of architectural design, with the ability to design solutions for new and existing structures• Understand fabrication, contemporary construction and 3-D conceptions, developing competence in digital construction and BIM• Build core skills required by a built environment professional, including team working, critical analysis, problem solving and project management*The Economist’s Global Liveability Index 2018
