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.
