Creative

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Summary... header image

Architectural and BIM Technology is an innovative approach to the integration of traditional architectural technologist skills-sets together with Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes and technologies which are currently transforming the way in which construction projects are procured, managed and built.

Course Details header image

This four year programme enables students to become architectural technologists with additional advanced skills in Building Information Technology (BIM). Students will become competent in the ‘science of building’ and the production of construction drawings and specifications for complex building types, allowing them to become technical members of construction design teams. Student will also acquire an advanced knowledge in the application of BIM methodology which is an integrated collaborative approach for building project delivery between the relevant professionals, i.e. engineers, quantity surveyors, architectural professions and the building contractor. The inclusion of an Industrial Placement (work experience) module and modules in Project Management, Property Pathology and Refurbishment, Value Engineering and Construction Collaboration Technologies, will also enable the graduate to become an interdisciplinary practitioner within the construction industry.
