Computer Literacy requirement is met through ITEC 1720, Computers in Industrial Technology.

Speaking/Listening requirement along with Jr/Sr Writing requirement is met through ITEC 1700, Evolution of Industrial Technology.

Architectural Technology Concentration 120 Cr.


The Architectural Technology concentration is a pre-professional program that provides a foundation of architectural and technology undergraduate studies. It is based on a strong exposure to the many facets of architectural design that include residential, commercial, urban, and environmental issues. Equal emphasis is placed on technological components such as drawing, computer aided drafting (CAD), 3-D building information modeling (BIM), site planning, construction and materials technology, energy and sustainability, mechanical and electrical systems, and architectural professional practice.

The program is structured to prepare students with a focused knowledge base and, with the introduction of design, a combination of both linear and creative thinking skills. Graduates are prepared to enter the design/building industry or proceed to graduate programs in architecture or other related design and construction programs. Job opportunities include working in architectural offices and many design and building industry related positions.
