Bachelor in Architectural Technology and Construction Management

General

Program Description

Do you see yourself developing, leading and managing large construction enterprises and are you looking for a career in international construction?

As an Architectural Technologist and Construction Manager, you take part in the overall planning of a construction project.

Your role will often be that of project manager or site manager in an entrepreneurial, engineering or architectural company.

The building process depends on the close cooperation between many different skills and specialists.

The Architectural Technologist and Construction Manager plays an important role in tying together the knowledge and interests of the client, architects, engineers, tradesmen and authorities.

This requires that you are able to cooperate and communicate with a range of different people with different educational, language, and cultural background. It also requires that you have a good general overview.

With a professional Bachelor’s degree in Architectural Technology and Construction Management (ATCM), you have the opportunity to become an extremely valuable asset to architectural and construction companies in a world where governments are enforcing major reductions in the allowable energy usage in a building.

The learning process

The stimulating Architectural Technology and Construction Management learning process 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.

Real life projects vary in difficulty starting with single-family houses in the 1st semester and end with four-story commercial buildings or large sports halls, giving a wide and varied understanding.

Realistic working environment

Working in groups in a digital media simulates a realistic working environment and qualifies the student to go directly into modern Architectural, Design or Construction companies.

Our students are also valuable employees for local authorities, insurance companies and educational centers. Alternatively, this bachelor also gives an opportunity to study for a Master’s degree.

The Architectural Technology and Construction Management study gives knowledge in architecture, load-bearing analysis, construction, digital drawing techniques, advanced digital management techniques, technical services, energy calculations, passive design technology, planning and management.

Working in project-based teams gives valuable knowledge in communication techniques and personal development processes.
