Visualisation in Architecture and the Built Environment

This course has been developed to enable students to respond to demands of a rapidly changing industry. Those changes are being driven by government strategy, the demands of building information modelling (BIM) and the widespread use of architectural visualisation techniques. The course will allow you to develop a deep understanding of visualisation techniques, their implications for design, construction and collaboration, and the ways in which they will affect your discipline area and working practice in the future. The course contains hands-on experience with a range of software packages, providing a foundation upon which students can develop their ideas and project work.

Entry requirements

We welcome applicants holding an Honours degree in architecture, architectural technology, surveying, engineering, planning or any associated discipline. The course will also be of interest to graduates from a design background, including interior design and product design. Applicants who comply with any of the following criteria should apply: A good Honours degree in any discipline from a recognised university; applicants who do not hold an Honours degree but who have relevant industry experience over a reasonable time period will be considered. For international students 6.5 IELTS or its equivalent is required.
