Between the architect’s vision and the engineer’s scientific method comes the important role of the architecture technician. Students learn drafting techniques and procedures to record required documentation and methods necessary to create building environments. Graduates are employed in a variety of architectural and construction positions with engineering and architectural firms as well as city, state and federal governmental agencies.
Associate in Applied Science degree emphases within the architecture technology area are pre-architecture and CAD (computer-aided design) architecture.
