Architectural Technologists are key participants in the design and planning of building projects and play a vital role in translating conceptual ideas into technical documents for construction. The Architectural Technology program will introduce and develop the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to work in this dynamic industry.

The learning process in the Architectural Technology program uses the latest technology to develop Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) skills, Building Information Modeling (BIM), project visualization and analysis, and project planning and administration. While learning using collaborative strategies, you will develop practical skills in projects from the residential and commercial sectors of the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry. The program provides opportunity for you to gain work experience in relevant industries through one co-op work term.    
In the Architectural Technology program, you take advanced courses and build on competencies gained as you move from semester to semester. Courses include subjects such as:
  • Building Information Modelling
  • Architectural detailing
  • Building science
  • Structural systems
  • Codes and standards
  • Project management
  • Specifications and contract administration
  • Green building and sustainability

A capstone project is incorporated into the final term.
