What is CIAT?

The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) represents professionals working and studying in the field of Architectural Technology. CIAT is internationally recognised as the qualifying body for Chartered Architectural Technologists (MCIAT) and professional Architectural Technicians (TCIAT).

CIAT membership sets the standard for professional conduct in the discipline of Architectural Technology. CIAT serves as a benchmark for anyone seeking to commission the services of a Chartered Architectural Technologist.

  • All members who provide services directly to clients must obtain and maintain adequate professional indemnity insurance.
