Architecture - DT101

This five year programme covers topics such as design studio, history theory and criticism of architecture, environment, construction, visual and digital communications, computer applications and law. The majority of the student experience centres around studio based design projects which allow the student to design buildings and explore the urban and rural context. There is a strong emphasis on studio work and exploring the students’ own understanding of architecture throughout the programme.

Students considering this career should have a creative aptitude for architectural design and the organisational ability to implement their designs in practice. They should also have an interest in artistic and cultural aspects of society as well as an aptitude for technical and managerial challenges.

The DIT degree in Architecture is recognised throughout EU member states. Following two years of postgraduate experience they may take the examination in Professional Competence and thus become members of the R.I.A.I and register as an architect.
