Architectural Technology

Advanced architecture education that's built from the ground up.

For the Winter 2021 semester, this program will be delivered entirely through remote learning. View delivery modes for all programs.

Assessments in this program include written, drawn and small physical model formats. Students who are able to access Sheridan's on-campus facilities to complete production work such as laser cutting, printing/plotting and 3D printing will have the option to do so. Students who are unable to visit campus will be accommodated, such as through electronic image submission of physical models or alternate modes.
