The first University to partner with OA is the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT). In 2014 a two year part-time BTech: Architectural Technology (Applied Design) programme was introduced as office-based, online and through occasional intensive face to face studios.

The part-time BTech programme selection process runs concurrently with that of the full-time BTech programme at CPUT.

The course subjects have the same titles as the full-time BTech subjects but course delivery is adapted to suit online part-time studies, employing alternative modes of delivery optimising workplace and online learning. The final portfolio outcomes will be comparable to the full-time programme and the quality verified by CPUT. The BTech: Architectural Technology (Applied Design) qualification awarded will be a CPUT degree.
