Bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction

This bachelor's degree in Architectural Technology and Building Construction,will provide you with a Europe-focused, generalist education on the theory, techniques and technology of the building construction sector. You will acquire the competencies needed to solve any issue related to stages in the building cycle: construction, maintenance, rehabilitation, demolition and urban development. Once you graduate, you will be qualified to practise some of the professions with the most reach in the European building sector: technical architect, construction site manager, health and safety coordinator and building information modelling (BIM) 3D software specialist. You will specialise by taking an optional subject pathway that provides the specific knowledge that is required for the Diploma of Further Competencies (DAC), a diploma that can be homologated by the Professional Certification Agency (ACP), which certifies the quality, capacity and competence of professionals in the building construction and architecture sector.
