This programme is designed for graduates in architecture, architectural technology, engineering or related disciplines, who want to become part of the growing international move towards innovative and high-performance timber building.
The programme will give you a specialist design and technical qualification in timber architecture and architectural technology. You will be introduced to a wide range of relevant technologies including: timber frame; monolithic systems such as cross-laminated timber; post-and-beam; structural insulated panels; mixed systems such as timber-concrete composites; spatial structures such as trusses and grid-shells; along with associated systems such as timber facades.
You will also gain an understanding of how growth in the timber-building sector is being driven by a combination of factors including: sustainability, emerging digital design and fabrication technologies, and an increasing demand for offsite fabrication.
Wood as a building material; Wood products and processing; Offsite construction and design for manufacture; Timber architectural design and technology; Building acoustics and sound insulation; Energy performance of timber buildings; Design of domestic buildings; Design of non-domestic buildings.
An Honours degree at 2:2 or above in a subject such as architecture, architectural technology or a building engineering discipline such as civil engineering.
Building and Surveying
