investigate current building projects in the UK and around the world
learn the various stages of design development that professionals must go through
go on excursions to see local projects in progress, as well as talks from guest speakers about their work
experience first-hand the new technologies being employed, such as scanning whole buildings and using virtual, augmented reality software, and how these tools are being used by design, restoration and heritage professionals.
In addition to lectures you will be set projects that you will work on in groups, presenting your ideas in 2D as well as simple 3D models - to give you a taste of what it’s like to work in industry.
