Grad students working in architecture studio

We provide challenging graduate programs that prepare you for stimulating, meaningful, and rewarding professional careers. A National Science Foundation study has predicted a shortage in the engineering workforce, so your skills will be in demand.

The complexities of today’s products and processes require more education and continued retraining of engineers. Engineers currently in the workplace, as well as those who will graduate in the future, must expand their technical knowledge and skills in order to stay abreast of new developments and provide the technical leadership industries will need.

Educational Requirements for Licensure

In the United States, most registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. Regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted an eight-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards.
