Year 0 (Foundation Year)

You will study the Foundation Year alongside students from our other Architecture and Product Design courses, and so you may be able to transfer to a course in one of these areas at the end of the Foundation Year.

  • Foundation Project
  • Foundation in Design Communications
  • Foundation Design Studio
  • Foundation Design History
  • Foundation Engineering for Designers

The normal expectation is that you must pass all Year 0 modules before progressing to Year 1.

Year 1

Design concepts and fundamental principles

The introduction of design concepts through studio work and computer modelling, whilst technologies are developed from basic scientific principles. The Department's theme for an inter-professional approach starts from the first day and continues throughout the course.

  • Building Physics and Services
  • Investigating Structures
  • Technical Studio 1
  • Studio 1

Year 2

Design integration, practice and application

Building on the principles of year one in both design and technology, the application of all aspects of design are practised and applied to a range of building problems.

  • IT for Designers
  • History of Architecture
  • Technology and Design Studio 2
  • Commercial Development
  • Procurement and Contract Practice

*Optional placement year

All students are encouraged to spend the year prior to their final year of study on placement. Students who undertake a placement year will complete an industrial placement module.

Final year

Final year students are expected to apply the whole range of their knowledge to large scale building projects, producing both detailed appraisal and 'new build' design solutions. This will involve conceptual design, consideration of production techniques and constraints, developing solutions using computer models, producing working drawings and documentation, and client advice on long-term sustainability issues.

  • Energy Management and Performance Evaluation
  • Building Pathology
  • Technology and Design Studio 3
  • Collaborative Practices in Building Information Management and Modelling

Plus one of the following modules:

  • Collaborative Practice (TB2)
  • Industrial Placement (for those who completed a placement year)
