|Institution||Nottingham Trent University View institution profile|
|Department||School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment|
This course will enable students to challenge current and prevailing digital orthodoxy in the built environment and determine strategies to future-proof design and construction processes. You'll acquire the digital theoretical, multi-disciplinary, technology and design management skills to become leaders in the field of digital architecture and construction.
The course focuses on the knowledge, methodologies and reasoning behind software, preparing you to adapt to any existing or emerging software and technology in the architecture and construction industries. This includes our key specialisms including computational design, parametric modelling, mixed-reality, building information modelling (BIM), building performance analysis, historical building information modelling (HBIM), rapid prototyping, and sustainability.
**Who is this course designed for?**
This course is aimed at graduates or professionals pursuing a career in architectural technology. It's suitable for those from a range of built environment disciplines, including, but not limited to, architecture, architectural technology, interior design, construction, surveying and civil engineering, who are looking to study a technical programme on route to industry or MPhil/PhD study.
**Why study this course?**
**Inspiring spaces |** Based in our Grade II* listed Gothic Revival Style Arkwright building, you'll work with our industry-standard facilities and studios, including our Creative and Virtual Technologies lab.
**Collaborative environment |** Our studio-based culture provides a dynamic and integrated learning environment that emphasises intellectual development and collaboration between students, academic staff and postgraduate researchers.
**Specialist academics |** Benefit from our team of expert academic staff who specialise in digital design in architecture and have significant experience of working in practice.
**Guest lectures |** Hear from visiting experts and discuss contemporary issues in architecture; recent industry speakers have included a number of RIBA Stirling Awards prize winners.
This course will apply for accreditation with the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT).
|Level||RQF Level 7|
2:2 honours degree in a relevant architecture or construction-related subject including, but not limited to, architecture, architectural technology, interior design, construction management, surveying and civil engineering.
If your initial application is successful, you'll be asked to submit a digital portfolio. Visit the course page for some advice on what to include.
To ensure you get the support you need to select your individual learning pathway and achieve the relevant module learning outcomes, a review will undertaken on commencement of your studies to appraise your level of professional skills and expertise (a skills audit). Through this you'll identify strengths, weaknesses and potential for development and workshops will be offered to address individual learning requirements.All assessment methods are coursework based.
Assessments vary from module to module and require you to undertake practical work together with research and critical evaluation in order to demonstrate the link between theory and practice. Assessment techniques include technical reports, case studies, individual and group projects and presentations. An assessment schedule will be provided at the start of the academic year, and care is taken to provide you with timely, constructive, formative and summative feedback.
