Architectural Technology is a relatively new discipline in Malaysia. The practice of Architectural Technology is underpinned by the application of science, engineering and technology and is closely aligned to industry. MAHSA University will be the pioneer University in Malaysia with the privilege to offer the programme “Bachelor of Architectural Technology” embedded with Building Information Technology (BIM) and Green Technology.

Industry is now recognising the value of the discipline of Architectural Technology as critical in the digital age given its focus on empirically-based digitalisation of design and construction through Building Information Modelling related to production, performance, environmental sustainability, economic efficiency and effectiveness.

Now the Architectural Technologist has moved away from the role of a “technician” to the role of a “building specialist”, contributing to construction teams as specialist designers who have unique strengths in building performance, production and process.

Moving into the future of the construction industry, BIM (Building Information Modelling) and Green Technology will be the mechanism to organise and generate architectural technology information that allows efficiency and building management.

This programme aims to prepare students with advanced computer application, Green Building Index knowledge, hands-on training and industrial projects that will allow them to become future Architectural Technologists.
