Career prospects

Building technology graduates are in high demand as the construction industry is lacking designers that bridge this gap between the architectural and engineering disciplines. Given that graduates can make decisions based on calculations and integrate them into architecture, they can direct structural engineers and manage complex processes. Graduates are sought after for architectural offices, engineering offices and specialised façade manufacturers.

Graduates of the Building Technology programme can expect to find generalist and specialist positions in engineering and architectural firms, and excellent opportunities in the business supply, contracting and project development sectors. Others opt to begin their own businesses or to pursue further studies at the doctoral level.

After graduation

The Building Technology track is one of five specialisation tracks within the Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences master programme. On graduation, students receive Master of Science degree in Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences (Building Technology track). 

With a diploma of the Architecture, Landscape Architecture or Urbanism track you can - after completion of a professional traineeship (beroepservaringperiode) - apply for registration in the Dutch Register of Architects, which allows you to use the protected title of Architect, Landscape Architect or Urban Designer in the Netherlands. The Building Technology and Management in the Built Environment tracks, as well as the Post-master programme The Berlage, do not allow you to register in the Dutch Register of Architects. Read more
