Department of Building Technology

Overview of the Department

From thatches to skyscrapers, the building industry is shaping the revolution of architectural designs to meet environmental friendliness and artistic impressions. For most town and country planning authorities’ knowledge in building technology, it is important to understand and demarcate communities spatially to provide access to vital community needs.

The Department of Building Technology, recognisable by its hands-on approach to understanding building designs, prepares students to meet the building and construction industry’s demand for highly technical middle-level managerial personnel. The department is fashioned to help students understand the academic and technical skills in the building and allied industry.

The programme under this department is well structured to integrate building engineering, architectural technologies and skills to give students the professional training in existing and emerging building technology processes, leading to rewarding careers in the industry.
