Following the success of the initial short online course Architectural Technology Professional Career Development, Ulster University, in conjunction with CIAT, is delighted to announce a further offering of this course to those aspiring to become a Chartered Architectural Technologist, MCIAT.

The course is designed to provide an understanding of CIAT's professional qualification pathway for prospective Chartered Architectural Technologists. This includes developing an appreciation of the process and undertaking a critical appraisal of individual knowledge, experience, skills and competency benchmarked against the MCIAT Professional Standards Framework. The content will focus on the following areas:

  • The MCIAT Professional Assessment – The route to qualifying as a Chartered Architectural Technologist
  • Stage 2 – Practical Standards – Written holistic submission with supporting evidence
  • Stage 3 – Professional Standards – Professional Assessment Interview
  • Developing communication skills

For the second iteration of this pilot project, we are welcoming candidates based in the Northern Ireland or Scotland East Regions. It will be fully funded by CIAT with 30 places on offer.
