Work in industry

You’ll have the chance to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry, which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total. A sandwich year can help with your studies and make it easier to get a job after graduation. It can also build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV.

We advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.

Build professional contacts

You’ll have the opportunity to exhibit your work to visiting professionals from industry and to make contacts in the industry through professional development sessions. This is where we invite experts to review and feedback on your work, as well as showcase presentations from CIAT (Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists).

Software used

The dedicated Computer Aided Design (CAD) suite and specialist software, such as REVIT, will allow you to develop skills in 3D design and building information modelling.
