Program Overview

The Architectural Technology program encompasses all aspects of the architectural building industry. You will learn about architectural building sciences, the principles of architectural and engineering design, materials of construction, the preparation of contract documents and Computer-Aided Design (CAD).

In a two-part technical thesis course, you will conduct an independent learner-initiated design or research project in a building-related discipline. Courses include surveying and site planning, history of architecture, introduction to sustainable design, contract administration, project
management, and built environment.

Individual and team projects provide students with the opportunity to develop competencies that are imperative for a successful career.

The Architectural Technology program is accredited at the Technologist Level by the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) of the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists.
