Careers in STEM


Architects use technical and creative skill to design structures that suit the requirements of their clients. As an architect, you will design new buildings or extensions or alterations to existing structures and advise on the restoration and conservation of old properties. You may work on individual buildings or on large redevelopment schemes, and your responsibility can extend to the design of the surrounding landscape and spaces.

Particular ethical debates related to architecture include the environmental impacts of the materials used, and the environmental sustainability of whole projects.
