Architectural Design Technology, A.A.S.
This program extends opportunities for those interested in the design and construction of the built environment, preparing students for transfer into baccalaureate and professional-degree architecture programs or for entry-level technical positions in architecture, engineering or construction firms.
The program builds mastery of valuable skill-sets, first establishing techniques in traditional (board) and then state-of-the-art (CAD ad Revit) drafting, then expands the technical core that includes blueprint reading, construction materials, codes and regulations, and typical project documentation. Students elect a concentration in architecture or construction management, tracking students through a sequence of architecture courses that explore creativity, exercise the design process and problem-solving skills, and instills the values of sustainable and responsible site design and development or; tracking through a sequence of construction courses that explore project estimating, sequencing logistics and management.
Upon completion, students will have built a portfolio of work to be used for transfer or to pursue an entry-level technical position in an architecture, engineering or construction firm, municipal building and planning offices, transportation, utility, and construction material industries.
