|Description:||Architectural and Building Technologies is a diploma program. It provides knowledge and skill development in: the properties and function of construction materials; criteria and methods of building construction and design; preparing construction documents; and contract administration. The Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists' (CCTT) Canadian Technology Accreditation Board (CTAB) accredits the program at the Technologist level. The American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) accredits the program as an International Associate Degree Program.
During the first three semesters, your studies will focus on all aspects of residential design and wood frame construction (National Building Code - Part 9). In the fourth semester, you will have an opportunity to earn an applied certificate in Architectural Heritage and Building Renovation or work in other special interest areas. In the fifth semester, you will receive an introduction to commercial and institutional building construction with a focus on construction detailing and methods, structural systems, environmental controls and the building envelope (National Building Code - Parts 3 and 4). After two years of suitable industrial experience, graduates are eligible for membership in the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians (SASTT) as Applied Science Technologists.
