Programmes

If you wish to be a key person in the building industry, the Architectural Technology and Construction Management programme is the right choice for you.

Bachelors of Architectural Technology and Construction Management are the professionals, who are able to participate in and coordinate the building process at all levels from concept to completion in the broadest sense. This includes new buildings as well as the renovation. During the studies you are able to specialize in design consultancy, facilities management and construction management. BIM (building information modeling) is an integrated part of the education, since we strongly believe that this is an essential and very important driver, which will have a strong impact on the future development and progression of the building industry. The programme is taught entirely in English and focuses on problem based learning planned around a semester project situated in different countries and current strategic markets. The difficulty level increases throughout the education.

Communication, planning, design, and technology are the key words of the Bachelor of Architectural Technology and Construction Management programme. The subjects of the programme are divided into 5 core areas: General, business, production, construction, design and registration. On top of that sustainability and innovation/entrepreneurship is inherent in the projects and the working methodology in all subjects.

The 6th semester is targeted to 20 weeks internship in Denmark or abroad.

Going international
More than half of our students are foreigners. Our teacher team has a multinational profile, too. This creates a special atmosphere; being a student in an international environment calls for flexibility, and it also challenges your intercultural skills and prepares you for a future of worldwide opportunities.

We firmly believe that everybody who undertakes further education today will need to collaborate with professionals worldwide at some stage in their careers. This type of collaboration involves not just a need for language skills, but also the ability and willingness to enter into the spirit of other cultures both professionally, socially and historically. Such abilities tend to develop while students are working together across borders and nationalities.

In short: We think globally – we act globally!
