The BSc (Honours) Degree in Architecture is jointly offered by Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) and University College Cork (UCC). This is a studio and project-led course integrating the three pillars of architectural education; design, technology and the humanities. The first year of study provides a foundation in design and the built environment, appropriate to both the discipline of architecture and associated design courses. The following years of study will become progressively more architecturally focused whilst still allowing and encouraging experimentation and research into associated disciplines as well as developing transferrable skills in communication, team working, computer aided design and management. This exciting and innovative Honours Degree programme has been developed with the support of the local architectural profession and in consultation with the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (RIAI).
