Introduction

We are currently experiencing a boom in the construction industry and companies in the sector are actively searching for Architectural Technologist. In this context, Rushmore Business School is offering a Degree in Architectural Technology to equip candidates with the relevant skills to join the construction industry.

Architectural Technology is the technical side of design, it is about how things "look" but mainly it is about how buildings work. It's all about problem solving and turning conceptual drawings into reality. It is about understanding design, and the buildability of buildings.

The BSc (Hons) in Architectural Technology programme content has been developed to assist students who are in or plan to enter design, construction or operations in the building industry.

The course has been designed to equip students with the knowledge, understanding, and skills required for success in future employment or for progression to a postgraduate degree. Each module will be assessed through assignments related, where possible, to workplace-relevant activities. Architectural Technology concentrates on the science of building. Architectural Technologists become specialists in preparing detailed drawings and specifications for building projects. They work closely with architects and other members of the design team.
