architectural technology @ TSCT

The profession of architecture touches everyone's life and is central to solving problems in the creation of a built environment.

Architectural technicians are problem solvers who work with clients on the design of buildings. They also create plans and specifications that direct the construction of a building and coordinate the work of other professional consultants and engineers.

In the construction industry, it is increasingly important to manage information and to respond to the many diverse requirements of governments, building conditions, and society. The architectural profession is rapidly integrating the technology of computers and automation to assist in the management of information and to free up time for creative work.

The instruction in Architecture Technology at Stevens College prepares students to become qualified for employment in the architectural profession and to transfer into architectural programs in nationally accredited universities. The instruction also provides retraining in technological applications for people currently employed in or reentering the profession.
