Specialist Diploma in Architectural Technology

Event code: 79004


Architectural designs in Singapore and many parts of the world have evolved rapidly with computerisation and good technical support is critical to ensure delivery of such quality developments. Cognizant of the government’s call for productivity and sustainability, building projects have to be completed quickly and to high standards. Hence there is a need for skilled and knowledgeable technologists to assist the Architectural Consultants and Contractors to achieve this goal.

The Specialist Diploma in Architectural Technology will help prepare you to meet the challenges of the workplace, covering important topics such as project drawing documentation, local building development guidelines, building regulations, integrated online submission of plans for approval, to detailing and good practices. You will also get to explore green building designs and try your hand at providing creative universal design solutions for the built environment.

This programme is targeted at Architectural assistants and technical support staff who need to quickly upgrade their skills and knowledge to be able to contribute effectively to the  project. It is also suitable for those who already have relevant construction experience but wish to switch to a design-related career.

Upon graduation, participants can look forward to career opportunities in both the private and public sectors, such as Assistant Architects, Section/Drafting Leader, Technical Officer, Architectural Coordinators, BIM Modeller or Architectural Product Specialists.
