Architectural Engineering Technology
Associate of Applied Science (Two year program)

This curriculum prepares men and women for further study or for employment opportunities as technicians in the field of architecture. In addition to positions with architectural firms, a graduate may qualify as an engineering aide, architectural draftsperson or estimator. The student will acquire understanding of the theory and skills necessary to create, modify and duplicate architectural drawings utilizing varied processes including computer-assisted drafting systems.

This program provides the student the opportunity:

  • Develop skills and gain knowledge for workforce readiness or transfer to other institutions in architecture, engineering, and allied fields.

The graduate of this program is able to:

  • Prepare architectural drawings, models, and electronic images that accurately convey the quality and details of a building design.
  • Effectively present ideas, concepts, and solutions related to architectural design through spoken and written means.
  • Describe and explain the social and cultural factors that have influenced historical architectural principles.
  • Incorporate relevant precedents into architecture and urban design projects.
  • Apply critical thinking, collaborative, and analytical thinking skills to the design of buildings.
  • Incorporate research skills, formal ordering systems, and conceptualization methods into the building design process.
  • Apply competencies to create technical drawing sets that illustrate structural and construction details which satisfy code requirements for residential and commercial buildings.
  • Perform calculations related to structural and mechanical engineering.
  • Perform cost estimates, prepare project schedules, and understand contracts related to professional design and construction services.
  • Describe career options and the process of becoming a licensed professional.
