BSc (Hons) Architectural Science and Technology

BSc (Hons) Architectural Science and Technology

The University of Lincoln is ranked in the top 20 UK universities in the Guardian University Guide 2020.

The Course

To meet the global challenges of population growth, rapid urbanisation, and climate change, skilled professionals must produce effective construction and sustainable design solutions that endure over time.

The BSc (Hons) Architectural Science and Technology degree at Lincoln is designed to meet the requirements of accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists. It reflects the global and interdisciplinary nature of the built environment professions.

Chartered Architectural Technologists are specialists in the science and technology of building design and construction. They form a strategic link between concept and construction, and ensure compliance with relevant legislation, such as building codes and regulations. Their technical skills are underpinned by knowledge in construction science, building technology, digital engineering, and architectural design.

On this course, students have the opportunity to develop their skills in our dedicated studio spaces with access to specialist equipment and advanced computer software.

The identity of the Lincoln School of Architecture and the Built Environment rests on the necessity to design and build tomorrow’s buildings and cities that are socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable. Our courses and projects therefore address design and construction challenges in both national and international contexts.

This programme is being designed to meet the requirements of accreditation by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). It reflects the global and interdisciplinary nature of the built environment professions.
Underpinning this course is the commitment to produce graduates who have an appreciation of architectural design. It aims to provide a solid understanding of the science of buildings, including their assembly and environmental performance.

At the core of the programme is the composition and integrity of a structure or building, from design to how it performs through form, function, technology, and fabric. Themes include environmental science, construction technology, construction IT, and architectural design.

This is an industry-guided course and the School has a Professional Advisory Board. It includes representatives from Lindum Group, Henry Boot Construction, Bowmer & Kirkland, and Longhurst Group among others.

Contact Hours and Reading for a Degree

Students on this programme learn from academic staff who are often engaged in world-leading or internationally excellent research or professional practice. Contact time can be in workshops, practical sessions, seminars or lectures and may vary from module to module and from academic year to year. Tutorial sessions and project supervision can take the form of one-to-one engagement or small group sessions. Some courses offer the opportunity to take part in external visits and fieldwork.

It is still the case that students read for a degree and this means that in addition to scheduled contact hours, students are required to engage in independent study. This allows you to read around a subject and to prepare for lectures and seminars through wider reading, or to complete follow up tasks such as assignments or revision. As a general guide, the amount of independent study required by students at the University of Lincoln is that for every hour in class you are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

Professional Context AST (Core)

In today’s ever changing and highly competitive business environment, if an architectural practice is to survive, it is essential that architects have an understanding of the construction industry and the value its contribution can make to the UK economy. Architectural technology and practice can no longer rely upon designing interesting buildings alone, but must do this in an efficient manner. This can only be achieved by being conversant with contemporary business management strategies, coupled with an understanding of project management within the UK construction industry.

† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

Assessment Feedback

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.

Methods of Assessment

The way students are assessed on this course may vary for each module. Examples of assessment methods that are used include coursework, such as written assignments, reports or dissertations; practical exams, such as presentations, performances or observations; and written exams, such as formal examinations or in-class tests. The weighting given to each assessment method may vary across each academic year. The University of Lincoln aims to ensure that staff return in-course assessments to students promptly.

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.

Student as Producer

Student as Producer is a model of teaching and learning that encourages academics and undergraduate students to collaborate on research activities. It is a programme committed to learning through doing.

The Student as Producer initiative was commended by the QAA in our 2012 review and is one of the teaching and learning features that makes the Lincoln experience unique.

Throughout the programme there will be opportunities for students to undertake placements, providing industry insight and experience. Students are required to cover their travel, accommodation, and general living costs while undertaking a placement.

Placements

Some courses offer students the opportunity to undertake placements. When students are on an optional placement in the UK or overseas or studying abroad, they will be required to cover their own transport and accommodation and meals costs. Placements can range from a few weeks to a full year if students choose to undertake an optional sandwich year in industry (where available). Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry independently. Tutors may provide support and advice to students who require it during this process.

Fees for enrolment on additional modules

Tuition fees for additional activity are payable by the student/sponsor and charged at the equivalent £ per credit point rate for each module. Additional activity includes:

- Enrolment on modules that are in addition to the validated programme curriculum

- Enrolment on modules that are over and above the full credit diet for the relevant academic year

- Retakes of modules as permitted by the Board of Examiners

- In exceptional circumstances, students who are required to re-take modules can do so on an 'assessment only' basis.

Additional Costs

For each course students may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required, depending on their subject area. Some courses provide opportunities for students to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for the travel, accommodation and meals may be covered by the University and so is included in the fee. Where these are optional students will normally (unless stated otherwise) be required to pay their own transportation, accommodation and meal costs.

With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that students are required to read. However, students may prefer to purchase some of these for themselves and will therefore be responsible for this cost.
