CPUT BTech: Architectural Technology (Part Time) Courses and Fees

Course Information and Fees


BTech: (Baccalaureus Technologiae)

Graduates are equipped to be Senior Architectural Technologists capable of independently researching technological innovations, perform professional architectural services in technology, design and management in the public and private sectors of the built environment.

The 2-year part-time BTech programme offered in collaboration with SAIA’s Open Architecture came about in 2014 after the Department of Architectural Technology and Interior Design had successfully experimented with a range of digital technologies from 2011, to create blended studio learning experiences. We are proud to say that we’re the first University to collaborate with Open Architecture and through this collaboration we have shown that Architecture can be mastered through blended and online learning methodologies.

Both the full-time and part-time offerings of the BTech programme are currently being phased out. There will, therefore, be no part-time BTech intake in 2024.

The BTech will be replaced by an Advanced Diploma offered from 2024, according to the new HEQSF structure. The Advanced Diploma will be at the same NQF level as the current BTech programme (NQF level 7) and it will lead to the same Professional (SACAP) registration category, namely Senior Architectural Technologist.

In line with the Department of Architectural Technology and Interior Design’s commitment to accommodate diverse student needs, this new programme will be offered in a flexible and blended format. The detail of the learning design will be made available in due course. In the meantime, you can keep an eye on the CPUT website www.cput.ac.za and read the statement by Open Architecture here: http://www.openarchitecture.co.za/content/academic-partners For enquiries, contact the Faculty Officer, Ms Thandi Madadasana at MadadasanaT@cput.ac.za
