What is the MCIAT Professional Assessment?

A flexible and quality assured qualifying process, based on performance and designed to recognise the diversity of Architectural Technology.

Candidates must provide an in-depth critical analysis summarising their knowledge, understanding and application of the construction process with regard to planning, design, construction and use, as well as relating it to professional experience.

This takes the form of a reflective report and refers to challenges and successes encountered whilst working on projects. Applicants also undertake a self-evaluation, highlighting strengths and weaknesses in relation to their area (s) of practice.

The MCIAT Professional Assessment process is based on the competencies of designing, managing, practising and developing (self).
