I'm currently an Architectural Technologist. I've been an Architectural Technologist for about a year. Quite a lot of experience gained in the past year, certainly especially from uni. But at the moment I basically take on the role of technical, and the technical stage with any project and we push concepts more towards completion and building regs packages just so we can initiate design.

I'm mainly an Architectural Technologist but my main role and in accordance with the directive anywhere when I started this job is a part one, I'm doing a lot of feasibility studies so stage two to three, this is what I'm really doing, then later on I will start working on the technology side as well every detail.

I get to work with many different software so it really depends on what it requires to do, sometimes these are rendering images sometimes it's putting a 3d model so it's a lot of variety it's not like everyday I'm doing a single stuff it's really working in Photoshop editing or even starting from a concept design so, from 0 until we arrive at the later stage.

They do give you a lot more industry experience whilst you're actually at the University rather than you know, prioritising academic studies and then you're lost when you go into industry. It prepares you quite well to the point where I felt comfortable the moment I started working at a practice.

Also the software that they have provided is what we're actually using here in the company, so it's thanks to them I now know how to use these softwares.

During my final year in the third year there was an important project which was the denikin project and it's it's not individual, is it was a group of five people and I think it's, it's my favorite memory because it's what we are doing right now at the moment in the companies and it's not about you're working by yourself but you always work with many different people and you listen to the others and eventually you come up with a building that everyone to work on it so I think that's the best.
