practicum placement so students can familiarize themselves with the industry before
completion of the program, students can work in the field of architecture,
interior, set design, exhibition, staging, or construction. Career
opportunities with this program include AutoCAD technologist, interior design
assistant, interior space designer, project coordinator, and more.
Sustainable Architectural Technologist
Sustainable architecture refers
to architecture that seeks to minimize the negative environmental impact of
buildings. This is done through the efficiency and moderation of materials,
energy, and development space in the ecosystem.
Architectural Technologist program is a 66-week diploma program that
focuses on concepts like design, materials, and documentation, environmental
protection, and sustainability. With an understanding of sustainable design and
documentation processes, students are introduced to critical thinking and
solution development with relevance to building material systems. Students will
also be taught freehand artistry as they develop an understanding of buildings
and their integration with natural surroundings.
offers a practicum placement allowing students to graduate with experience.
Career opportunities with this program include architectural assistant, project
coordinator, landscape architect assistant, CAD technologist, and more.

creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design.
If you want
to be proficient with CAD systems like AutoCAD, Autodesk Revit, and SketchUp,
then this program is the right fit for you.
Design Technology Program is a 12-week certificate program available
for students who want to develop a basic understanding of these software
applications. Through the program, students will learn how to create precise
drawings, technical illustrations, and 2D and 3D models using CAD software.
These models can then be used for design work applications like solid
modelling, architectural design, interior design, and industrial product
completion of the program, career opportunities available include AutoCAD Technologist,
Revit Technologist, 3D Modelling Technician, and SketchUp Technician.
