Architecture and the Built Environment


Architecture at DMU is in the top 10 for ‘Graduate Prospects’ in the UK, according to The Complete University Guide 2021. Established in 1897, the school aims to offer innovative architectural education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

We will develop your visual awareness, technical abilities and creative skills required for a rewarding architectural career through a highly charged atmosphere of stimulating architectural discourse in the form of projects in studios, exhibitions, lectures, workshops and events. There are interactions all year round within a community of established educators, award-winning architects, respected research scholars, our alumni and award-winning students.

The award-winning Vijay Patel Building brings all our architecture and design courses together into a one contemporary striking space. It has been designed to provide the space and facilities where student and staff ideas can develop and flourish.
