“I chose Architectural Engineering at the University of Plymouth due to the integrative nature of the course, with modules dedicated to domestic and commercial design approaches, fundamental construction processes and construction law.
I enjoyed the dynamic structure of the course, studying different modules such as contracts, construction and environmental law, in tandem with essential and advanced design and construction processes. I also appreciated the differing module outcomes, where all my skills were continually developed and exercised through; report writing, creating 3D architectural models and drawings, performing professional presentations and conducting a self-directed research dissertation.
I would encourage anyone with an interest in architectural design and/or construction processes to consider this course, as it has the potential to create a well-informed and grounded design-engineer with a good appreciation for sustainable development.
Personally, this course has illuminated the growing necessity for the mitigation of environmental impact from infrastructure and construction projects. Once I graduate, I aim to further my education by studying for an MSc in Environmental Monitoring and Assessment”.
