The University is committed to ensuring students have access to specialist equipment and resources to develop the skills they need in their future careers. There is a Construction Science Laboratory which includes science and land surveying equipment. There are modern computer suites with advanced computer hardware and software including building information modelling (BIM).
Dedicated studio spaces create opportunities for Architectural Science and Technology students to work alongside students in Architecture, and Construction Science and Management in order to experience interdisciplinary design projects as they would in the real workplace.
Throughout the programme there will be opportunities for students to undertake site visits, placements, and internships, providing industry insight and experience.
Please note that students are required to cover their travel, accommodation, and general living costs while undertaking a placement or internship and there may also be additional costs associated with site visits.

As built environment professionals, Chartered Architectural Technologists typically work as private practitioners with their own firms or in architectural firms, as well as in large multi-disciplinary and multinational consulting practices. Graduates could be involved in tasks such as surveying sites, assessing environmental impacts, and analysing architectural plans to identify problems or potential risks.
Chartered Architectural Technologists have the skills to carry out several significant roles in the building design and procurement process. This includes project inception, project planning, construction design, project management, site management, and BIM management.
Architectural technologists play a significant role in the design, documentation, delivery, and management of buildings and related infrastructure. There is a growing demand for technical expertise in both emerging and developed economies around the world.Professor Stephen Pretlove, Head of the Lincoln School of Architecture and the Built Environment

This course places a strong emphasis on design, sustainability, and creativity while addressing the issues of living in the contemporary city.
This course aims to give students the skills required to deliver creative solutions for the challenges facing the global construction industry.
Interior architects shape the spaces in which we live our lives, combining aesthetics with philosophy and function.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
