Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT)

The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) provides professional accreditation for the TU Dublin School of Architecture, Building and Environment TU831 BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology programme.

The programme was accredited in principle in 2019 and was approved for Full Accreditation in January 2021. This provides a direct professional accreditation pathway for TU Dublin architectural technology graduates to chartered membership of the CIAT or MCIAT.

The Dublin School of Architecture looks forward to further engagement with the CIAT including encouraging students to submit their work for annual CIAT awards and supporting the CIAT Republic of Ireland Centre in its ongoing engagement with architectural technology students and graduates nationally.


The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists is a dynamic, forward-thinking and inclusive global membership qualifying body for Architectural Technology. 

CIAT represents those practising and studying within the discipline and profession. It is a membership organisation representing 9,500 members and affiliates within the discipline who wish to be professionally recognised.

CIAT Accreditation ensures that the programme has been assessed in terms of content, structure, resources and has met the Institute’s requirements. The benefit of studying on a CIAT Accredited Programme is that it will support individuals wishing to become Chartered Architectural Technologists.
