Want to learn everything about ECO architecture in a digital design world? Eager to learn how to design, plan, construct and manage complete building projects from inception to completion?


The Bachelor’s degree programme in Architectural Technologyand Construction Management (ATCM) gives you the opportunity to become an extremely valuable asset to architectural and construction companies in a world where governmentsare enforcing major reductions in the allowable energy usage in a building. The stimulating learning process on the ATCM programme involves studying as a member of a project group where the group designs the project documentation in digital form for 1) client approval, 2) planning permission and 3)construction, As a student, you will be able to participate in international projects with our partners and have a chance to support our PhD students with their research. The programmeis recognised by organisations like CIOB, ABE and CIAT.


As a graduate your role is to solve technical construction problems. You have to interpret, develop and co-ordinate the work of the architect and civil engineer to ensure that the building project is carried out efficiently and properly. 

You can also manage the construction process on site and actas the mediat or between craftsmen, technicians, architects,engineers, surveyors, managers and clients. Working in groups in digital media during the studies simulatesa realistic working environment and qualifies you to go directly into modern architectural design and construction companiesor local authorities, insurance companies and educational centres.
