The Challenges of Architectural Technology Programmes in Selected Nigerian Polytechnics: A Review of the Literature
This paper presents a review of literature on the architectural technology programmes in selected polytechnics, and the professional practice of the graduates in Nigeria. Three polytechnics offering architectural technology programmes were purposively selected for the study. Primary data was collected from structured interviews, and the secondary data were collected from copies of the curriculum, refereed journals, books, and reports retrieved from reliable internet sources. The research method involved descriptive and thematic analysis of the curriculum contents used in the schools as well as responses from the architectural firms where the HND graduates from December 2013 to October 2015 worked.
