For those of you who want to be the link between idea and action in the building project.
Architectural Technology and Construction Management is a 3½-year Bachelor's Programme.
Where in the conception, design, and construction of building projects, the architect mainly works with aesthetics, the engineer with physics, a graduate in Architectural Technology and Construction Management is a generalist who deals with aspects of these as well as the organisational side of things.
During the programme, you will learn to solve technical, administrative, and documentation assignments - in both theory and practice.
Computers are frequently used throughout the degree programme, however, computer skills are not a requirement before applying. We will teach you everything you need to know during classes, where you will also receive your own computer in the classroom. This is all done to guarantee that our graduates have excellent skills in using up to date computer technology in their work.
Most of the teaching takes place in class with your classmates, but occasionally there will be lectures together with other classes.
Students come to the Architectural Technology and Construction Management programme with a variety of backgrounds. During the programme, you will find that your fellow students are familiar with the field either through books and theory or through experiences as craftsmen. This mixture of student backgrounds helps create strong and dynamic working groups. In such working groups a wider array of resourceful competences come to light, allowing students to help each other using their skills the best way possible.
It takes 3½ years (7 semesters) to graduate as a 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 programme you will learn to solve technical, administrative and documentation assignments - in both theory and practice.
The programme qualifies you to plan, control and administer structural assignments, as well as controlling the production process and taking part in quality assessments.
Construction, planning, and project control are therefore central themes in this degree programme, you will for this reason deal with the following subjects:
As a student at UCL University College, it is also possible to create an international profile during your studies. Depending on your chosen programme you can go on short international modules, study a semester or do your internship abroad, and participate in international projects.
The knowledge and insights that come from international experiences, as you encounter cultures of other countries, can be useful for more than personal enrichment. Such insights may also make you highly attractive to the Danish and international job markets.
Going abroad is an adventure, which will equip you with skills and experiences for life. You will develop yourself both professionally and personally, and you have a great opportunity to make friends and a network abroad.
All students in the programme have to get practical experience during their studies.
The internship is meant to help turn your career in the direction you prefer, e.g. primarily drawing and sketching or mainly managing the activities at a building site.
The internship always takes place in the 6th semester and lasts 10 weeks. Being so close to graduation, students are at a very advanced point in their education and have a good chance of being closely involved in serious and interesting projects during their internships. The practical work in a company may also help you as a student to choose a topic for your final project, which is undertaken during the 7th and last semester of the programme.
Important to note is that UCL has to approve the chosen company to ensure the company’s ability to host you as a student and to guarantee a high-quality placement. This helps all three parties involved (student, company, and UCL) gain a positive outcome from the student’s work experience.
This way, as students learn about the labour market and what kind of tasks and demands they may face upon graduation, companies benefit from the high skill of an almost-graduated student. From the evaluation of the internship, UCL will learn what current needs the labour market has, and whether newly graduated constructing architects are able to fulfill these needs?
One of the things that characterise the study programmes at UCL University College is that you will receive an education that emphasises practical experience. Amongst other things, you will work on practical cases in class, and work on projects with real businesses. The most practically-oriented part of the study is the internship, which is an integrated part of all study programmes 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 degree once graduated.
When the time comes for you to find your first job as a graduate, you will because of a strong internship not only have theoretical knowledge, but also important experience of 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 an architect’s drawing offices, with consulting engineering companies, or within a public authority or body. International organisations are gradually using constructing architects as well. Alternatively, you also hold the option of starting your own business.
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.
