(R): 302

There are two area of concentrations leading to the AAS in architectural and construction technology: architectural technology and management of construction. In addition, two certificates are offered: CAD for the building professional and management of construction. Both of the AAS area of concentrations are designed to prepare graduates for entry into paraprofessional positions in the construction industry and architecture upon completion of the curriculum. (See Construction Management )

Graduates of this AS area of concentration continue their education toward professional degrees or seek employment immediately as paraprofessionals. Technicians specializing in architecture and construction are prepared to assist and work with architects, contractors, and related professionals.

Successful graduates involve themselves in many specialized aspects of the construction industry, including preparation of contract drawings, supervision and/or inspection of construction work, and contract administration. Computer drafting skills provide extensive opportunities for graduates.

Students planning to transfer to four-year schools of architecture should be aware that not all courses in the curriculum may transfer.
