The Architectural option prepares graduates to bridge the gap between the architect and design engineer by assisting in the design of architectural, mechanical, electrical, and lighting systems for buildings. Architectural technicians fill support positions in various architectural and engineering firms, and provide an important interface between the architect and the project engineer. The curriculum provides fundamental knowledge of building information modeling and CAD using Revit Architecture and Revit MEP with regard to the design and construction of architectural, mechanical and lighting systems. Students gain knowledge of construction methods and principles, architectural drafting and design, and the structural design involved in building construction.
