Associate of Applied Science Architectural Design/ Construction Technology
The Architectural/Design Construction Technology Program deals with the design and construction of homes, schools, commercial, industrial, and public buildings and community projects. It is also concerned with the upkeep, repair, modification, renovation, restoration and modernization of existing buildings.
Graduates work as technical management personnel for architects, engineers, design-builders, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, fabricators, technical construction material sales companies, or the government. Many will have their own businesses practicing as licensed home builders, contractors, remodelers and architectural designers/builders.
Graduates will have the knowledge to produce drawings required to build the structure and to supervise and inspect the actual construction of residential and commercial buildings. After completion of the associate of applied science degree program, the graduate can also attend a four-year institution to attain a bachelor’s degree in related fields.
The Architectural/Design Construction Technology Associate of Applied Science Degree is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering, 3300 Washtenaw Avenue - Suite 220, Ann Arbor, MI 48104, www.atmae.org.
