Architecture student working in studio

Studying Architecture at the University of Hartford allows you to merge architectural skills within our state-of-the-art design studios built to make you successful.

You will grow a better understanding of how buildings are designed and created, and how to make an impact on local neighborhoods and cities near campus. Collaborate and interact with students and faculty more than anywhere else thanks to our small classroom sizes and personalized studio space.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to educating you on the key skills architectural and design firms are looking for, as well as defining the different areas of architecture within civic, social, and professional realms. Through our talented faculty and their connections, you will have an opportunity to network with our industry professional connections during project reviews and discussions inside and outside the classroom. This opportunity will be beneficial as you look for internships and job opportunities within the field. The career path with a degree from our Architectural Design + Technology program opens the door to possibilities. You will walk away with:

  • the foundation of a challenging architectural education
  • the best blend of architecture education with an emphasis on key liberal arts skills like communication
  • 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

Kristin Crowley

BS, Architectural Engineering Technology, 2019

Coming from a technical high school, Kristin was very used to have constantly having hands-on experiences, and luckily that continued all through college. Kristin is now working full-time at Whiting-Turner Contracting Company in Shelton, CT as a Project Engineer.

In CETA, I was able to work with architects and project managers in the field and take the lessons I learned and applied them to my own design work.
