If you are interested in drawing, problem solving and structure and have a strong record of achievement in design, mathematics or similar subjects, a career in Architectural Technology or Quantity Surveying could be for you!
As an Architectural Technology student you’ll learn the principles of building design through drawing, computer aided design and modeling as well as working as part of a design and construction team turning concepts into reality. Students gain skills such as establishing a design brief, presenting preliminary designs, developing building concepts and preparing working drawings. They also develop skills in areas applicable to the wider construction industry including health and safety plans, quality assurance and construction methodologies.
Quantity Surveying students graduate able to cost projects and estimate materials, communicate with clients and collaborate with engineers, architects and other members of a design and construction team. You’ll also have a thorough understanding of building technology, the construction process and legal requirements.
SIT has a specialised design suite with 30 stations running AutoCAD, Inventor, ArchiCAD and a number of manual drawing stations. There are many site visits throughout the programme and the opportunity to participate in real-world projects.
