About this course

Architectural technicians interpret sketches and designs produced by an architect, architectural designer or client. They make working drawings, such as floor plans, elevations, sections and details, and associated documentation of buildings. Wintec’s National Diploma in Architectural Technology (Level 6) will get students involved in this dynamic industry as it will equip them, under appropriate supervision, to act as an Architectural Technician in small to medium scale building projects. Once students are experienced, they will be able to extend your work to include larger and more complex building projects.
