Course description

Life is defined by the spaces in which we live, work, play and travel, and this course focuses on the spatial manipulation, conceptual, compositional and technical innovations required to create the interiors of buildings. You will study a number of areas, including refurbishment, film and exhibition design, and virtual environments, and we will also give you a grounding in anthropomorphism, ergonomics, materials, structure, environmental control and sustainability. Teaching is mainly project-based and covers 2D and 3D computer-aided design, digital image creation and video production, and by the end of the course you will have developed a creative understanding of the structure of a range of buildings. This course will fire your imagination, inspire your senses and give you a thorough grounding in every aspect of this increasingly important subject.

Modules

Areas of study include: Interior design (architecture); art and design; interior design; design technology; contemporary issues; professional design project; art and design work placement; art and design dissertation; art and design major project.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Before the recession, architecture had one of the lowest unemployment rates of all the main subjects, and graduates were in demand. But the recession hit the construction industry very hard and that has meant a tough few years for architects. Things have been looking up more recently, though, so we hope and expect that the jobs market for architects will get better. Most working architects secure jobs in the architecture industry, more usually starting as assistants rather than full-blown architects or chartered technicians. Some, however, move into management, design or marketing roles, where they find their planning, design and project management skills are very welcome. Nearly half the architecture-related jobs last year were in London or the South East, and this group are rather more likely than average to find their jobs through personal contacts, so polish your networking skills if you want to succeed as an architect.
