If you major in architectural technology you’ll train to become a vital link between architect and construction crew. You’ll rely on your mastery of computer-aided-drafting software to fill in the fine details of an architect’s drawing.
But that’s not all: You’ll also learn how those blueprints become buildings. It takes only one year to earn a certificate or two years to earn an associate’s degree. But by the time you finish, you’ll understand the physical laws that keep a building standing. You’ll also know how to test materials, estimate costs, and evaluate mechanical and electrical systems.
