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 that takes the privilege to offer a program of “Diploma in Architectural Technology” embedded with Building Information Modelling (BIM) and sustainability.
Industry is now recognising the value of the discipline of architectural technology as 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 which relates to production, performance, environmental sustainability, economic efficiency and effectiveness. Now the Architectural Technologists has moved away from the role of “technician” to the role of “building specialist”, contributing to construction teams as specialist designers who have unique strengths in building performance, production and process.
Now, the architectural technologist has moved away from a “technician” role to a “building specialist” role that contributing to construction teams as specialist designers who have unique strengths in building performance, production and process.
Moving into the future 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.
The programme aims to prepare students with advanced computer applications, hands-on training and industry-relevant projects that leads them to become a competent architectural technician, BIM modeler and other related jobs as well an opportunity to further their studies to Bachelor of Architectural Technology or related disciplines.
