PROGRESSION: ARCHITECTURAL TECHNOLOGY
The Department is committed to providing an educational ‘ladder of opportunity’ to all its students.
Graduates of the DT175 BSc (Honours) Architectural Technology programme will be eligible to progress to the recently validated Department of Architectural Technology Level 9 postgraduate certificate in Applied Architectural Technology, and to planned postgraduate diploma and masters degree programmes in architectural technology specialisms such as conservation technology, sustainable technology, and information management technology.
Graduates of the DT175 BSc (Honours) Architectural Technology programme will be eligible to progress to postgraduate programmes both related and unrelated to the built environment in DIT and in other educational institutions in Ireland, the UK, the EU and elsewhere.
Many architectural technology graduates choose to study architecture. A small number are admitted to the DIT Degree in Architecture programme subject to suitability test and interview, generally to first year but from time to time to second year.
Each year the department runs a series of careers seminars and workshops to assist students in preparing their applications for places in degree programmes in architecture in the various colleges in Ireland, the UK and elsewhere.
The numbers choosing to progress to architecture may decline as further qualifications in architectural technology become available and as the discipline of the Architectural Technologist develops.
