Architectural Technology Courses: The Architectural Technology section deals with the ever-changing interrelationships of material, functions, environment, and production. All of these must be evaluated and manipulated in order to achieve the optimal performance, balance, and maximum efficiency of the building system.
This science is the translation of design concepts into graphic images, and then converting these graphic images into technical drawings and specifications that ultimately result in the creation of the built environment.
The main goal of this field is to prepare students for the workplace through extensive training in building products and materials, structural analysis and design, and building science.
Therefore, knowledge and theory concerning the processes of design, and building science such as construction, and environmental issues are very important and must be developed alongside the skills needed for drawing, communication, and presentation. This is an extremely important link between design and production.
Architecture students must gain a unique understanding of the inseparability of disciplines involved in architecture and buildings, as well as the connection between building technology and design. We have carefully chosen courses that are concerned with the quality of the constructed environment, its architectural design, and its structural resolution.
The following Architectural Technologies courses will provide you with the knowledge and skill required in creating buildings and other architecture and thus provides you with the necessary skills upon entering the workforce.
