For those of you who want to be the connecting link between idea and action in the building project.
Architectural Technology and Construction Management is a 3½ year Bachelor's Programme.
The programme may look a little like the architect or the engineer, but the difference can be described as organisational skills. The architect works with aesthetics, the engineer with the physics, whereas the graduate in Architectural Technology and Construction Management works with the organisational part.
During the programme you will learn to solve technical, administrative, and documentation-like assignments - theoretically as well as practically.
You will use the computer a great deal. We emphasise that our graduates have excellent skills using up-to-date computer technology in their work. We have no demands concerning your computer skills before applying, we will teach you everything you need to know. You will get your own computer in the class room.
Most of the teaching will be in class with your classmates, but now and then there will be lectures together with the other classes.
In class you will find many different students who have worked either primarily with books and theory, or mostly in the field as craftsmen. Due to this mix of backgrounds in class the work groups are strong and dynamic with a wide spectrum of competences. The students help each other using their skills the best way possible.
It takes 3½ years (7 semesters) to graduate as Bachelor in Architectural Technology and Construction Management. It is a full time study, giving you 210 points in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS points).
During the education you will learn to solve technical, administrative and documentation like assignments, theoretically as well as practically.
The education will give you the qualifications to plan, control and administer structural assignments as well as controlling the production process and taking part in quality assessments.
Construction, projecting, and project control are therefore important topics of this study programme.
To be a good project manager you will deal with the following subjects during your education:
As a student at UCL University College you can get an international profile during your study. Depending on your chosen study programme you can go on short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.
International knowledge and experience is very useful for you and our society. You will get important insights into other countries' culture, which will make you very attractive on the Danish and international job market.
Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will develop your self both professionally and personally, and you will get friends and a network abroad.
All students at the programme have to get practical experience during their study.
The internship will help the you to turn your career in the preferred direction, e.g. primarily drawing and sketching or managing the activities at a building site.
The internship will always take place on the 6th semester and will last 10 weeks. At this time so close to graduation students are at a very advanced level and therefore has a good chance of being closely involved in serious and interesting projects in the chosen company. The practical work in a company may also help you as a student to choose the subject for the final project which the students will work with during the 7th and last semester.
UCL has to approve the chosen company in order to assure the company’s ability to host you as a student, and to guarantee a high quality placement.
All three involved parties, the student, the company, and UCL, will gain a positive outcome from the student’s work experience.
As a student on internship you will learn about the labour market and what kind of tasks and demands you will face upon graduation.
The company will benefit from having a student who is almost graduated and therefore may show what skills a newly graduated constructing architect possesses.
From the evaluation of the internship, UCL will learn: what current needs the labour market have, and are newly graduated constructing architects able to fulfill these needs?
One of the things that characterises the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will get a very practice-oriented education. You will e.g. work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. However the most practice-oriented factor during the study is the internship, which is an integrated part on all studies at UCL.
The internship is your chance to use and test your knowledge and theory 'in the real world'. The internship also gives you the opportunity to test what exactly you want to do with your education when you graduate.
When you need to find your first job as a graduate you will not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience on how it is to work in your specific field of interest.
You are taught to be a generalist within the fields of architectural technology, construction management, building surveying and facilities management:
You will have the qualifications to work within the contracting business, in architect’s drawing offices, with consulting engineering companies, or within the public authorities. International organisations are gradually using constructing architects as well. Finally you may want to establish your own company.
You can continue to study to become an Academic Engineer. You will be granted a transfer of credits for your bachelor's degree from UCL. You can choose to study at e.g. Aalborg University.
If you want to go abroad, you can take a Master's Degree/Master of Science in Great Britain.
If you do not hold the above mentioned qualifications, but you have other relevant qualifications, for instance a Vocational education within a relevant area, please contact a Student Counsellor for an individual assessment.
