Overview

Our architecture courses are ranked 22nd, out of 55 institutions in the Sunday Times League Table 2019.
To help you to fill this industry need, Solent’s new architectural design and visualisation programme explores two connected areas of architecture: concept design – as a creative process – and visualisation – as the means of turning concepts into photorealistic images.

The design curriculum will help you to grasp the fundamentals of architectural design and covers essential principles of design process; aesthetics; architectural composition; scale; proportions; space planning and history. Visualisation modules explore various methods of visualisation including freehand drawing, physical model making, computer generated imagery (CGI), computer modelling and 3D walkthroughs.

This course is unique in its approach – specialist architectural visualisation courses are not currently available at undergraduate level anywhere else in the UK. It is also unique in its inclusion of architectural design study alongside visualisation training. This knowledge of design processes will help you to play an active role in design teams in addition to leading visualisation projects.

You’ll also benefit from the teaching team’s extensive industry links. These links have been built over many years of delivering courses accredited by professional organisations (e.g. CIAT, CIOB, SBID and CABE). Practitioners from a cross-section of the built environment industry regularly contribute to the academic process by providing real-world projects, guest lectures, mentoring sessions and site visits.

Career opportunities

The course has a strong focus on student employability, balancing professional practice with design and visualisation studies in order to prepare students for the professional workplace.

Graduates will leave the course well prepared to pursue work with specialist visualisation agencies and architectural design businesses. Graduates may also work on a freelance basis, or set up their own practice.
