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.
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).
