OA CPUT BTECH PART TIME PROGRAMME


CPUT ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN ARCHITECTURAL TECHNOLOGY

CPUT is currently phasing out the BTech degree and planning to implement the new Advanced Diploma in Architectural Technology from 2020, in accordance with the new HEQSF structure. Following the success of the part time OA-CPUT BTech programme, CPUT will offer the new Advanced Diploma in Architectural Technology through its own structures, in a flexible and blended format to accommodate diverse student needs.

The successful collaboration between Open Architecture (OA) and the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) will come to an end in November 2019, with the phasing out of the BTech programmes countrywide.

The part-time CPUT BTech Architectural Technology programme will be replaced by a part-time Advanced Diploma in Architectural Technology. However, external applications and returning CPUT applications won't be considered until 2021.

See www.cput.ac.za for updated information.
