Architectural Design + Technology

Program Director: James Fuller

 

We offer a pre-professional Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Architectural Design + Technology, a rigorous academic program that prepares students for a variety of careers in architecture and the construction industry. The focus of the program is the design studio in which technical, structural, and liberal arts courses are integrated through the creative process in the design of progressively more complex architectural projects.

A strong component of liberal arts, with particular emphasis on communication skills, as well as multiple electives in the later years, ensures that students who pursue this program of study will have the foundation of a challenging architectural education. They will also have a broad understanding of the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue advanced degrees in architecture and related disciplines or entry into architecture firms or the building industries.
