Architectural Design Technology, A.A.S.

Overview
Jonah Godfrey, TRCC Student

“I transferred to Three Rivers and changed my focus because the architecture classes inspired my interest. It has given me a lot of new energy. It’s a rare and interesting opportunity to study architecture at a community college and be able to then continue on to a four-year institute that specializes in it.”
Jonah Godfrey, Construction Technology, A.A.S.

This umbrella program includes the disciplines of architecture, civil, and construction management technologies (AEC – architecture, engineering and construction). With the degree, you can transfer into a baccalaureate program. You will also be qualified as technical designers, engineering technicians, and construction management technicians in inspection, testing, scheduling, and estimating. Composed of a technical core, the program will provide you with a foundation essential in the AEC industries that includes construction materials, blueprint reading, codes and regulations, contracts and specifications, surveying, and CAD (computer aided design) with a BIM (building information modeling) focus. The architecture track expands on the design process and sustainable site development, while the civil track expands upon structures, hydrology and drainage, and soils. The construction management track rounds out the third concentration with a focus on construction estimating, logistics, critical-path, and scheduling.
