Applications for the popular part-time BTech course offered in collaboration with Open Architecture is currently open for study in 2017.

The two year part-time BTech Architectural Technology degree programme is not limited to candidates from the Western Cape.

The blended model allows for three block release sessions on campus per year, office-based mentoring and online interaction and is ideal for working individuals who are keen to upskill and advance their professional registration to that of Senior Architectural Technologist, but are unable to give up their job to study full time. 

In April the first cohort of graduates, who enrolled in 2014, graduated and 40 students are presently enrolled. With students from as far away as Windhoek, Polokwane, Harare and Johannesburg, course co-ordinator and senior lecturer, Jolanda Morkel, says it is aimed at inclusivity and the transformation of the architectural profession. 

“This project demonstrates a successful university-Industry collaboration aimed at broadening access to higher education for non-traditional students by providing a flexible learning model,” she says.

Applicants need a National Diploma in Architectural Technology or equivalent, plus a minimum of one year work experience in an architectural office.

A Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) route is also available for those who have a minimum of 10 years` work experience but without the minimum formal qualification.

The selection process involves an interview, presentation of a work portfolio, design and theory testing and the candidate should be employed in an Architectural office, with a mentor.
